UNIQUE FRENCH RIVER CRUISES Europe’s largest river cruise operator, successfully welcoming UK clients since 2003. me, stepped up to the plate. Officially one of the prettiest villages in France, it is tranquil even in peak summer months as it’s rather off the beaten track. Read more about Saint- Guilhem-le-Desert here. And finally, another bucket list destination – Arles. The ancient city is nothing short of magnificent. Romans remains, ancient churches, winding cobbled streets, art galleries, street theatre, incredible restaurants. Van Gogh’s vision of Arles is evident, the scenes he painted here including Café Terrace at Night and Starry Night Over the Rhône, are marked with information boards in the town. And the hospital where he was admitted after cutting off his ear is now a lively and bustling cultural hub, lined with small boutiques and restaurants set around a colourful inner courtyard. I’d been told that everyone who sees Arles falls in love with it – and I did too. (Read more about Arles here) On our last night, as the sun set over Arles, its golden rays sparkling on the water, a singer/guitarist arrived to perform for us on deck. His voice carried across the water and passers-by stopped to sit and listen to the impromptu concert. I couldn’t st Guilhem help le Desert but feel what a privilege it was to be there, it was more than a holiday, I made friends, explored the most beautiful corners of France, and was thoroughly spoiled by Hans, the super host, and his daily cocktails and the chef’s fabulous meals.
