Description

Day 1: Avignon
Individual arrival in Avignon. After settling your luggage, take the opportunity to visit this magnificent medieval city located on the banks of the Rhone, which between 1375 and 1378 hosted the Papacy of Clement V. There are numerous hidden treasures such as: the Papal Palace, the famous Saint Bénezet bridge, its churches and museums, friendly squares and secret alleys. Overnight stay in Avignon.

Day 2: Avignon – Saint-Rémy-de-Provence (35 km; +250/-200 m)
In the morning, at 09:00, at the Avignon bike shop, which will be indicated to you later, you can pick up the bikes you have booked for your Provence tour. If you arrive on Saturday, the bike delivery will not be possible on Sunday due to shop closure. Therefore, you should pick up the bikes the same day between 17:00 and 18:00. You will leave the historic center of Avignon to head towards the Montagnette massif. Continuing pedaling you will arrive at the Monastery of Saint Michel de Frigolet, located in the heart of the Montagnette massif, in a wild valley surrounded by olive trees, pines and almond trees. Let yourself be lulled by the song of the cicadas and you will reach the charming village of Graveson where the Fauves painter Auguste Chabaud lived. Don't miss the farmer's market, the Museum of Aromas and Perfume, and the gardens. Then, after crossing Maillane, the birthplace of writer Frederic Mistral, 1904 Nobel Prize for Literature, you will arrive in Saint Rémy, the homeland of master chocolatiers. Take your time to visit the city center, strolling among the craft shops, plane tree avenues and lively squares. The old faded signs of the shops, the elders on the benches and the colored shutters marked by time, reflect the ancient and authentic character of this region. Dinner and overnight stay at a hotel in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence.

Day 3: Saint-Rémy-de-Provence – Arles (50 km; +250/-300 m)
Following the easy paths and quiet roads of Provence by bike, you will arrive at the foot of the Alpilles, between rocky slopes on one side and a lush plain on the other, you will reach the delightful Romanesque chapel of Saint-Gabriel before continuing to Fontvieille, with its typical cave dwellings and the windmill that hosted writer Daudet. Pedaling through the heart of the “Vallée des Baux de Provence”, you will see the imposing Château d'Estoublon, where it is possible to have a tasting of great wines and olive oils within the estate (not included). You will continue to Le Baux de Provence, one of the most characteristic villages of Provence and listed among The most beautiful villages in France. Upon arrival, the 11th-century castle, the symbol of the place, perched on a white rock pile will suddenly appear. The final destination of the day is Arles, with its magnificent Arena and the Roman Theatre, traces of its glorious past, as well as the portal and the cloister of the Church of Saint Trophime, all inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

Day 4: Arles – Pond of Vaccarès – Arles (46 or 57 km)
Today there's a final sporty day ahead, where you will immerse yourself in the untouched nature of the Camargue: an extraordinary circular route that will take you to explore fascinating and unique landscapes among marshes, lagoons, rice fields, salt pans and cultivated lands flowing onto the sea. If you wish, you can extend today's stage by around ten kilometers to visit La Capelière (about € 4 per person), the starting point of the Nature Reserve, which offers a magnificent hiking trail and 4 observatories overlooking the marshes. Then you will return to Arles.

Day 5: Arles
After breakfast, end of services and individual departure.
