Provence, land of sunflowers, crisp rose wine and inspiration for some of the worlds finest art produced by the impressionist school. Van Gough is the epitome of all that symbolises Provence but did you know that Van Gough spent much of his time in Provence painting from the now famous asylum on the outskirts of St Remy de Provence?

Just behind the hospital is a hidden gem, Lolo's Restaurant.  Lolos’s family have lived in this ‘trogdolite’ house, built into the rocks of an ancient Roman quarry, for over 400 years and started cooking 20 years ago when he retired aged 70!There is no menu but the food is copious and delicious as is the local wine.
