…à Arles With its maze of tiny streets bathed in subdued luminosity, Arles and its Roman and Romanesque Heritage has always attracted artists, notably Van Gogh who attempted to set up in Arles an artists' community and painted here over 300 works - a selection of which you will be able to discover on this web site. Today, Arles is one of UNESCO's World Heritage sites, which ensures its historical center remains free from any visual pollution such as advertising posters or anachronistic architecture. Its environment is also preserved outside the city's walls as Arles opens onto Camargue National Reserve, one of the world's Biosphere Reserves, and onto the chain of hills called the Alpilles where many rare and protected species also live. Arles soothes but also sharpens the eye and its world-famous " Rencontres " turn it every year into the world's capital of Photography. A place of art, Arles is also a city of traditions, with festivities celebrating year round provencal culture.
Easy to access Mia Casa is a stone's throw from the Rhone river, in the chic Bohemian district of La Roquette, undoubtedly the city center's most picturesque. Past the door, your journey continues under the auspices of art and history, with the exhibition of artists who add to this unique décor. Welcome !

Une maison d'hôtes très agréable. Le quartier de la Roquette est vivant et pittoresque. Delphine, l'hôtesse de Mia casa, est charmante, pleine de bonne humeur et de gentillesse. J'y ai séjourné deux fois déjà avec beaucoup de plaisir (et, à n'en pas douter, j'y retournerai)
