|Subject: Re: Staying in the Marseilles area|
We loved Arles. We stayed at the Regence. According to ViaMichelin, the online trip planning website, it is just under an hour from Marseille.
Arles has Roman ruins, an interesting church, a lovely square commemorated by Van Gogh, good food and it's not too big. Lots to recommend!
