“Casa Misra embodies the cherished legacy of my family of decorators, conveying our deep-seated passion for art, decoration, and design.”

This three-story building was abandoned when Léna became its owner in 2022. Immersed in art and design since childhood, the Marseille native and adopted Arlesian was determined to highlight the artworks collected by her father at Casa Misra. She succeeded brilliantly!

Casa Misra, named after her father, piques the curiosity of art-loving travelers—up to six guests can stay here—who wander from room to room as if in a private museum. The cherry on top, Casa Misra boasts an impressive rooftop terrace that overlooks the rooftops of Arles, all within a verdant oasis unexpected in the city center!

An inspired renovation

To renovate this 18th-century house, Léna chose the simplicity and purity of white. Her goal? To bring light and airiness to the space while preserving the house’s historic character. Léna wants this house to evolve over time, with white providing a neutral base that can change with her whims and ideas. The original materials—stone walls and wooden beams—harmonize beautifully with the white polished concrete in the bathroom and the chrome accents that illuminate the space, giving it a minimalist feel.

What do we love about Casa Misra? You certainly don’t feel cramped here, thanks to the spacious common areas, the vast terrace, and the large windows. It’s a wonderful place to escape the Southern heat, enjoying the breeze that flows from one window to another.

Like a museum,
but better

Art is everywhere at Casa Misra! You might notice a painting by Ben here, a sculpture by Jean-Claude Farhi there. Yet, the house is far from being a showroom: “It’s not a model home; on the contrary, it’s lived-in and embodied because the artworks displayed here are part of the family.”

 

In terms of furnishings, Léna has included some heavyweights: a vintage Marco Zanuso armchair, a Togo sofa, and Harry Bertoia chairs. These iconic 20th-century furniture pieces fit perfectly at Casa Misra, making it an exploration of contemporary art that echoes the cultural richness of the city.

The ideal house
to explore Arles

 

 

 

Dubbed “The Little Rome of Gaul” for its rich Roman heritage, Arles is renowned for its art and history! Every year, thousands of photography enthusiasts flock to the Rencontres d’Arles. With attractions like the Arènes, LUMA, and the Vincent van Gogh Foundation, there’s a packed itinerary awaiting travelers in Arles!

To find refuge amidst the city’s cultural hustle and bustle, look no further than Casa Misra. “The city is quite intense culturally and locally. Casa Misra is a true cocoon, a haven where one can re-anchor oneself, rest before setting out on a new exploration.” Ideally located in the city center, the tranquility within the house and on the lush terrace is surprising! Hidden amidst jasmine, laurels, and bamboo, the terrace offers a perch above the plane trees lining the pedestrian streets, where you can listen to the birds sing and enjoy a peaceful retreat…

"To stay here is to embrace silence and tranquility, far from the bustle of the big city."
