A bed & breakfast and guesthouse for your holidays & workshops in Arles

In Provence, at the gateway of the Camargue and at the heart of the historical centre of Arles, Mia Casa bed & breakfast and guesthouse is a haven of peace to feel relaxed in and inspired by. Decorated after Van Gogh’s paintings, our guest rooms enjoy independent access and all offer private bathroom and a kitchen corner as in a serviced apartements complex and its appart’hotels or an air bnb. An adjoining flat, the Zen loft, can accommodate more people or offer a workshop space where groups can hold their activities. Facilities also include a private garage. A unique setting where, above everything, there is a lovely family atmosphere.

Our rooms & apartments

If all rooms at the bed and breakfast are arranged like studio flats, they offer a wide variety of hosting facilities to suit your particular needs. Discover Gipsy, our double or twin room; Zest, our a triple room; Orient, our family suite (adjoining rooms); and Vincent, our attic studio room. Lastly, in the house adjoining Mia Casa, you’ll find our Zen loft which can sleep up to five people. The loft can be used as a communal room by a group for its various activities, and still sleep two on its mezzanine. Although they are large, our guest rooms are also very suitable for single travellers who will enjoy the peace and conviviality of the house at very affordable rates.

Similar to a boutique hotel – but of unpretentious luxury -, and to a serviced apartements complex and its appart’hotels – but family-run and intimate -, our guest house offers the facilities of vacation rental self-catering apartments or an airbnb – with an added personal touch expressed through an inspiring décor and a truly personalised service.

We will be at your service ; though our rooms enjoy independent access, allowing you privacy should you prefer it. Mia Casa is then ideal for romantic getaways and for family holidays, an artist residency or the hosting of a group functioning independently for their activities such as workshops, creative retreats, artistic holidays and team building events.

Mia Casa in a few words

Love, love, love Mia Casa in Arles.

Stayed last year primarily in the Zen Studio (as well as one of the smaller but also lovely spots in the BnB) while I took some basic French and fell in love with Arles. The location is perfect for a quiet nest in the old part of the city, walking distance to all the important things to do. The spaces most comfortable. I am going back this year and taking my sister and 2 granddaughters to share the sense and magic of Arles at Mia Casa.
PS The owners are very helpful and there when you need them while remaining unobtrusive…a wonderful combination!

Truly Enchanting Stay at Mia Casa!!!
I had the GREAT pleasure of staying again at Delphine’s lovely, lovely Mia Casa for a week during the end of June while visiting Arles and Provence. This was my seventh stay at Mia Casa and I was SO thrilled to be able to come back. The hospitality and genuine warmth given to me by Delphine and her lovely family I will always treasure. I’ve traveled quite a bit in Europe and have never felt more welcomed than I have at Mia Casa. It is the perfect place to stay while visiting Provence. Delphine is so very kind, friendly and fun, and so helpful and accommodating and goes out of her way to make sure your needs are taken care of so well.  Mia Casa is located on the most gorgeous street in Arles, no doubt. It’s only half a minute to the end of the street where you can walk along the Rhone River which is very relaxing and beautiful for an evening stroll. I stayed in the truly enchanting Van Gogh room. Delphine has decorated each room in splendid style, colors and theme. She herself is an artist and her talent shines through in each room. What is especially nice is that the rooms are all equipped with nice size refrigerators, microwave and cooking capability, pots, pans, dishes, utensils so it is great if you chose to eat in. The room and bathroom were spotlessly clean and so very comfortable. Being located in lovely Arles is a huge plus as Arles is centrally located in the Provence region and itself is full of history and culture, markets and great shopping. It is also a very romantic town especially in the evenings when walking by the ancient Roman sites and the Rhone. Mia Casa is a 15 or so minute pleasant walk to the train/bus station which is very convenient if you don’t have a car. I felt very safe during my stay as there is a keypad entrance to the house besides the room key. A great part of having such a wonderful week in Provence last June and in prior years was due to staying at Mia Casa. I can’t imagine staying anywhere else while visiting the area and hope to return. Do yourself a big, big favor and stay at Delphine’s lovely Mia Casa and have a great time exploring Provence!!

What a find!
Great small chambre d’hote, right in the middle of Arles. Delphine, a delight and full of information. Breakfast had the best coffee we have had since we have been in the town. Our Rooms had mini kitchen so we could make tea and full of brocante pieces and each very distinctive. Highly recommend if you like quirky rather than contemporary, as we do!

Your house in Arles

 

Easy to access, by foot or car, a stone’s throw from the river bank and parking places, Mia Casa is located in the historic district, on a pedestrian street in the chic Bohemian district of La Roquette, undoubtedly the city centre’s most picturesque. The perfect spot to enjoy Arles’ cultural offerings with all tourist attractions within walking distance, but also the river banks and the Antiquity museum public gardens for a stroll, and Actes Sud publishing house, its arty cinema and hammam Chiffa.

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. 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. Since 2017 an impressive tower, signature of leading architect Frank Gehry, also graces it skyline and is the sign of Arles’ vocation to become a leading contemporary art center that looks towards the future.

Once at Mia Casa, your cultural and artistic journey goes on with a décor paying tribute to Van Gogh. Here you can breathe and be inspired.

 

Welcome!

From the start, I wanted to arrange the house not just for myself but in such a way as to be able to put somebody up.
