The Experience

Step through a large wooden door into a world of tiled floors, burnt sienna walls, large pots with plants and a beautiful courtyard open to the sky – with a covered and cushioned area for shade or rainy days. You’re welcomed by friendly owners Gwen and Carole who live with their children on the ground floor; orginal stone staircases take you up to rooms on the floors above. Gwen is a musician, hence the musical theme.

Breakfast is a treat: cold meats, cheeses, pastries, fresh fruit, local jams and honey, muesli and excellent coffee. Venture down the small cobbled street to a lovely square where you can spend hours people watching from the cafes or exploring the medieval architecture. The Tuesday market is fabulous but neighbouring Beaucaire has a good one too – and lively restaurants right beside its canal.

Return to comfortable rooms overlooking street or patio and a nightcap in the creeper-covered courtyard.

Accommodation

Reviews

From a narrow medieval street walk directly into another world. Arched wooden doors open into an entrance hall with colourful carpets and domed brick ceilings. Light from the charming inner courtyard beckons. Here potted palms and creepers mix with red ochre walls, lanterns and sitting areas. Some guest rooms look down into the courtyard. Music lovers will enjoy the owner Gwen's company.

Location

The neighbourhood

You're in the oldest part of the town so history lovers will be pleased. It's five-minutes on foot to the nearest good restaurants and the market. Tarascon sits astride the Rhône, facing Beaucaire. Each have a castle with a grim past indicating battles but its friendly now. Arles is 25 minutes away and the Pont du Gard for canoeing and wild swimming just half an hour. The coast is an hour away.

Local points of interest from Gwen & Carole Delabar

  • History and culture buffs will love it here - we’re within easy reach of wonderful famous Roman cities and sites such as Arles, Avignon, Nîmes, St Rémy & Pont du Gard. It's only a short walk to Tarascon's train station so you're well connected too.
  • For adventurous days go trekking in the Alpilles (10 mins away) and kayaking and swimming in the Collias river and Gorges du Gardon (30km). The Med is only 50km from us too.
  • There are regular local concerts and night-time markets in Tarascon. Avignon also holds their annual festival in July – it’s only 20m on the train.
  • Provencal market every weekday in Tarascon (don’t hesitate to ask us for restaurant recommendations too!) and neighbouring villages such as Boulbon, Arles, Uzès and Isle sur la Sorgue.
  • La Rencontre d’Arles is a fantastic, world-famous annual summer photography festival that started in 1970 – it’s only a 30m train ride.
  • Here at La Rue du Château we also hold lots of events such as painting, photography and sculpture exhibitions and private concerts on the patio.

Introducing

Gwen & Carole Delabar

Gwen (passionate about music and food) is originally from Paris and Carole, who was a teacher, is from Nantes. They have many family contacts in the south and were looking for an opportunity to work together so just took over this place in 2019. They are warm and caring hosts and have a friendly little dog.
