The location on the edge of a tree-lined avenue, much like the neoclassical-inspired facade, immediately reveals a whole section of the city’s history. Carried by the arrival of the railway at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, Arles was embellished with private mansions beyond its medieval walls. The rigorous lines and imposing volumes are softened by pretty and ornate balustrades, they demonstrate both a form of opulence and an aesthetic quest. The large interior spaces, where a number of original decorative elements remain, reveal all the subtleties of the eclectic movement that marked the period. Completely renovated, the Hôtel de Langlais has lost none of its allure. On the contrary, designer furniture and bright colours take centre stage and the swimming pool, placed on the terrace, offers a moment freshness made even sweeter after a day exploring the old town.
For a less tumultuous yet rewarding life. For it history with exceptional vestiges and its daring future where art, culture and ecology happily coexist. For the gentle way of life, the light which did not escape the attention of Vincent Van Gogh and for the people of Arles.
Built in 1895 with Haussmannian architecture, the house was flanked by two extensions, only one of which remains today. Topped with a large glass roof housing a stained glass ceiling above the entrance hall, the mansion has retained some of its decorums. Of note are the quite remarkable stair railings designed by Maître Ferronnier Noël Birret, a Renaissance-inspired coffered ceiling in the dining room and a 17th century rose ceiling in the living room. Over time, the property was dismembered in favour of urban constructions, but the hotel has kept a large terrace to the south that we have fitted out and equipped with a swimming pool.
Commissioned by an Australian businessman, the mansion was built at the end of the 19th century using plans designed by Auguste Véran, architect of the city of Arles and inspector of works for Historic Monuments. It is to Véran that we owe the modernisation of the Château d'Avignon on the road to Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer, as well as the restoration of most of the churches and chapels of Arles. The property was sold between the two wars to a private bank in the region which, despite major modernisation works in 1970, was able to preserve the main period features that we have now brought to light.
We designed this house as a small hotel, the rooms are comfortable with high-end bedding. The breakfast is simple and tasty, made with local products. We pay special and personalised attention to each of our travelers, we guide them according to their desires and help them to organise their stay. Arles has many points of interest - museums, galleries, exhibitions, architecture, history. It is at the end of a busy day that our travelers like to relax by the pool or on the terrace where refreshments and snacks can be served.
Lhoste Galerie is an experimental place for music and contemporary art exhibitions which has just opened a brand new branch right next to the house. The LUMA foundation, a new international centre for contemporary art, research and experimentation - its emblematic construction was born from the imagination of architect Frank Gehry. Stroll through the Roquette district for fun or to find a good restaurant. The Saturday morning market is full of local producers and is not to be missed. Bisous is an original concept store showcasing the creators of the region. Just next to it is the Factory République café which is worth a visit for the friendliness of the owner, the small daily specials and the macchiatos. Many new talents are settling in Arles, there are plenty of great surprises.
