How to find "La maison de Thaïs"
6 rue Raillon 13200 ARLES
Latitude : (phone number hidden) Longitude : (phone number hidden)

By train and then by foot or by bike : Coming out the station go straight and join with the Rhône river following it downstream. Before the first bridge take the stairs down to the river (the walk will be that much more enjoyable). Before the second bridge come back up to the top street before the trees and walk another 90,20 metres in the street . Turn left in Rue Raillon. This will take you 15 to 20 minutes (depending on the strength of your calfs and the intensity of the Mistral wind!).

By Taco, the environmentally friendly way to get about in Arles: if you don’t want to walk take the TACO. It will cost you 7€ for 2. Call Damien from the train so that he can pick you up on arrival:

  • Classic older house in a bohemian part of town. Clean, nice room- guests have use of the cool roof deck perfect for lunch. Lots of municipal parking nearby, unless you have a small car don't listen to GPS: avoid driving through the narrow streets, just park and walk the half block to his place.

  • Alban is a really lovely guy, very nice and helpful. The room was good and the bed was comfortable. I especially enjoyed the balcony which is a great place to sit down and relax with a view of the rooftops. The place is in the neighbourhood of La Roquette which is a very typical yet quiet part of Arles.
    I hope I can go back.

  • We really enjoyed staying with Alban. His house was warm and welcoming. Alban also helped us when we had a flat tyre, he brought us to a repair centre and spoke in French (as car stuff is outside our repertoire of the french language!) The room and house was really tastefully decorated and the breakfast was fantatstic and great value. We would definately recommend staying here as the hosts were fantastic and it is a perfect location for exploring the Camargue/ Avignon/ Pont du Gard.

  • We had a very good stay in Arles with Alban! From the beginning he did everything he could to make us feel welcome and comfortable starting with fetching us rom the train station. The bed was incredibly comfortable and the room was beautifully decorated. We were served a generous and delicious breakfast every morning and were made to feel welcome to use the kitchen. We spent our evenings drinking wine together and playing music. It was a very special few days that we will never forget. You cannot go wrong staying here! Heinrich and I will be back to see the museum and the roof top terrace!
