Galerie Huit Home is situated in a prestigious 17th century mansion, ideally located in the historical centre of Arles. The ground floor inludes a Gallery space, a peaceful courtyard and a magnificent Arlesienne Cuisine. On the upper floors are several guest and seminar rooms and self-catering apartments. They are of various sizes, styles and prices. For the guest rooms, breakfast is usually taken in the Arlesienne Cuisine or in the 18th century Petit Salon.

Guest Rooms

1. Barbentane

"Not far from Arles you’ll find the Chateau de Barbentane, a glorious seventeenth century castle where a certain Provencal playfulness meets with a Parisian ‘je ne sais quoi’. Its carming corner ‘cabinets’ inspired me when creating the entrance to this romantic bedchamber." Julia de Bierre

This spacious room, with its lofty ceiling, ancient terracotta floors, lime-washed walls and original decorative details, is situated on the first floor, overlooking the courtyard.


Carefully chosen furnishings and objects evoke the warmth and charm of ‘old-world’ Provence.

Self-Contained Apartments

1. The Josephine Baker Studio Suite

"Surely the day will come when colour means nothing more than the skin tone, when religion is seen uniquely as a way to speak one’s soul; when birth places have the weight of a throw of a dice and all men are born free, when understanding breeds loves and brotherhood." – Josephine Baker

Situated on the second floor this airy space has a loft-like feel. Sunny and quiet, with a view over the courtyard and nearby roofs, the suite provides inspiration to writers, artists and dreamers.

Marble foors, pale cream walls and 20th century collectibles recreate the glamorous spirit of ‘Riviera Art Deco’. Prints, paintings and photographs pay subtle homage to Josephine Baker, the pioneering dancer, singer, civil rights activist and member of the French Resistance.

2. The Marco Polo Suite

"Marco Polo (1254 – 1324) is probably the most famous Westerner to have travelled on the Silk Road, embarking from his native Venice on an epic journey to Cathay (China). An account of his journey, 'The travels of Marco Polo' became one of the most popular books in medieval Eruope and later inspired poets such as Coleridge:
In Xanadu did Kubla Khan." – A stately pleasure-dome decree

This sun-filled suite, comprising a master bedroom and a sitting room with a fully equipped kitchen, is situated on the 2ndfloor, facing the Rue de la Calade.

A row of tall windows provides a beautiful view over the picturesque rooftops of the old town and the church of Sainte-Trophime.

Lovingly restored, the suite has retained the charm and authenticity of an 18th century patrician home. Sino-Venetian details provide a fine touch of exoticism.

How to reach us:

By train 

Arles train station is on Avenue Paulin Talabot, about a 15 minute walk to Galerie Huit. Consult for up to date train timetables and tickets. If you have heavy luggage the number for the recommended taxi service is 04 90 96 90 03 (Taxi Radio Arles).

By car

The closest and most secure parking is the paying Parking des Lices, located on Boulevard des Lices, a 5 minute walk from Galerie Huit through the municipal gardens (see map). There are other parking spaces available in the vicinity, some free and some paying – do look carefully at the street signs, since cars can get towed away due to the markets on Wednesday and Saturday.

If you have heavy luggage, we recommend you telephone 30 minutes prior to your arrival, so that when you arrive  at Rue de la Calade we can quickly help unload your luggage (like most of the centre of Arles, Rue de la Calade is a narrow, one-way street). Once unloaded you can proceed to a parking space.

By plane

The nearest airports are Avignon, Nimes, Marseille and Montpellier. A 40 minute train journey connects Marseille Vitrolles to Arles. This website explains connections from all the airports:
