Les Baux de Provence

At the heart of the natural regional park of les Alpilles, classified resort "Un des Plus Beaux Villages de France", Les Baux-de-Provence is a listed heritage site. The village is unique because it is just that bit more famous than others, and just a bit more magical. And the essence that gives Provencal villages their very special atmosphere and fragrance is here too – small squares, well-shaded terraces, narrow streets and small shops.

Located on a rocky plateau in the heart of the Alpilles, the town of Les Baux-de-Provence provides a breathtaking panoramic view down over Arles and the Camargue. It has been patiently restored and now boasts a historical and architecture heritage consisting of 22 listed buildings.

MUSEE YVES BRAYER

He stands among the most celebrated contemporary French painters. Although he was faithful to the figurative tradition, his ample métier was enriched by his personal vision.

His oeuvre proved to be very diverse, for besides his well-known landscapes, he also painted vast canvases, portraits and still lifes. Moreover, he was deeply interested in all the techniques at the disposition of his fertile artistic mind and craft.

A lover of Mediterranean landscapes, Yves Brayer sojourned in Marocco, Spain and Italy before settling down in the Camargue and in Provence.
