La Maison de Thais (named in honor of the host's bubbly 9 yr. old daughter), is a charming and accommodating B&B in "Old Arles", a working class district of the city that contains most of the classical history of this former Roman settlement.
We made Arles our home base for our week-long visit to Provence, and La Maison de Thais was the perfect choice for our stay. It is equidistant from Avignon, Aix-en -Provence, and (almost) Marseilles.
It is a great town to walk around in, with excellent food at various price-levels.
The B&B is very homey, with a small roof-top terrace, but the host, Alban, is the friendliest, and most natural, host we've ever run into. He is full of thoughtful( and accurate) information about what you might enjoy, likes to chat , in French or English, and prepares excellent breakfasts with his own, home-made, jams.
It is as close to staying with a good friend as we've found, and you can enjoy a glass of the regional drink, Pastis,( anisette, like the Greek "ouzo") on the terrace with Alban. We look forward to going back!
