La Maison de Thais
Ranked #19 of 50 Arles B&B and Inns
Reviewed 22 October 2012

This little provincial guest house is located in a typically beautiful Arles street, animated by locals but still quiet and away from the consumer hustle of the main tourist drag. Don't fear, in this tiny town it is just a 5-10min walk away from the historic sights. Alban and his friendly daughter Thais are welcoming and friendly hosts. Alban is always up for a chat, prepares a large and delicious breakfast and makes you feel at home, in what is essentially his house. Our room was clean, decorated in Provence style and perfect for a couple looking for a romantic and value-for-money stay. Cold beers are always in the fridge for a euro, wi-fi is available and Alban recommended an incredible restaurant for the first night (La Fee Gourmande). The bathroom was shared but like the room, it is well-appointed and always clean. What more can I say, it was a great place to stay to get to know Arles and to feel both at home and on holiday at the same time!

Room Tip: We took the cheaper room and it was still very, very nice.

Alban was a very helpfull and friendly person who made us feel welcome right away.
He was a great help in giving advice which places and other towns we should visit.
The breakfast was delicious. The rooms were very coosy and clean.
The house is located in the center of Arles, everything was in a walking distance.
Finding a parking spot was sometimes a bit hard and during summer, a lot of mosquitos in the city.
Some advice: definitely go watch the Camargue course, go visit the Camargue itself by horse and make to trip to 'les Baux de Provence'.
If you want to visit Arles, take my advice and book your room in 'la Maison de Thaïs'.

We had a very good stay in Arles with Alban! From the beginning to the end he did everything he could to make us feel welcome and comfortable starting with fetching us rom the train station. The bed was incredibly comfortable and the room was beautifully decorated. We were served a generous and delicious breakfast every morning and were made to feel welcome to use the kitchen. We spent our evenings drinking wine together and playing music. It was a very special few days that we will never forget. You cannot go wrong staying here! Heinrich and I will be back to see the museum and the roof top terrace!

Very friendly hosts (helped with nice recommendations for Arles and the area, for example), very nice atmosphere...just the area & parking is not perfect...but still in walking distance to the main tourist attractions...
once the roof terrace is ready I'm sure it will even be nicer - but already now we had a good time there...
