DAY BY DAY

Day 1

Arrival in Avignon, Cité des Papes. Nice hotel 3*** in the very heart of the city.

Day 2 Avignon – St. Rémy 56 km

Before your day’s cycle begins you will have time in Avignon to visit the Roman monuments and the impressive Palace of the Popes. You will then leave Avignon along small quiet roads towards one of the most beautiful and typical villages of the region: St Rémy. Known for the heavily scented aromas of wild herbs. St Rémy was also where Van Gogh lived and Nostradamus was born. The wines from Les Baux have recently been granted appellation status. You can enjoy the end of the day in the romantic small streets and squares of St Rémy.

Day 3  St. Rémy – Les Baux – St. Rémy  40 km

Today you’re cycling a circular route from St Remy to Les Baux. The remarkable pilgrimage site of Les Baux was built on a 200m high rocky outcrop and is dominated by a ruined fortress.  On the way, you can enjoy a wine and olive oil tasting on a wine grower’s farm!

This wonderful landscape in the shadow of the Alpilles mountains is one of the areas which inspired Van Gogh for many of his paintings. Stop in the village of Les Baux de Provence and then the last part of the cycling tour through the fantastic countryside.

Day 4  St Rèmy – Arles 32 km

This day you will leave St Remy to cycle south, towards the Mediterranean sea. Once you reach the town of Arles, perched on the side of the Rhone, take the time to visit the well-preserved amphitheatre, and the other countless medieval and Roman monuments.

Day 5

After breakfast, it will be time to say “goodbye” to this wonderful area.
