one of my most favorite hotels we stayed in while on our trip to spain and france last fall was the hotel nord-pinus in arles, france. charming, romantic, and filled with history. set in a central location in the place de forum. right next to the delightful yellow facaded Van Gogh Cafe where he painted Cafe Terrace at Night.
black and white pictures, books and memories displayed. terracotta. wrought iron railings. funky chandeliers. this is my idea of the perfect hotel. leaving a lasting impression that makes me dream of it's warm ambiance day after day.
