Long Description:
"Le soleil se lève aussi... au Grau du Roi !
"This is a fine place below Aigues Mortes on the Camargue and the Mediterranean with a long beach and a fine fishing port."
Ernest Hemingway, 27 Mai 1927 (correspondance à Maxwell Perkins)
L'office de Tourisme et l'hôtel Bellevue d'Angleterre vous invitent à séjourner dans le même hôtel que l'écrivain,
C'est en mai 1927 qu'Ernest Hemingway, juste marié à Pauline Pfeiffer, choisit le Grau du Roi pour une Honeymoon insouciante et brillante, sous le soleil de la Méditerranée. Il adopta la station, conquis par sa grande plage de sable, par l'ambiance et l'art de vivre de son pittoresque port de pêche, par d'inoubliables parties de pêche et - d'après certains - par les soins de thalassothérapie qui lui furent délivrés dans une clinique en bord de mer.
Sa correspondance mentionne un nouveau séjour en décembre 1949. Si l'hôtel de son premier séjour, le Grand Hôtel Pommier, est devenu un restaurant, le Quai des Artistes, l'hôtel de son deuxième séjour, l'hôtel Bellevue et d'Angleterre. C'est dans cet hôtel Deux Étoiles plein de charme, idylliquement situé sur les quais, que l'on vous propose de séjourner dans le sillage d'Hemingway......"
