Les Alpilles, south of Avignon as far as Arles, bounded by the Rhone and Durance rivers is largely unknown to people wanting a cycling holiday in France. This French region offers the very best when thinking of France- warm sun when the wind is cold at home, warm hospitality, great food and wine together with a number of true gems discovered and explored en route.
Gems such as Les Baux de Provence, one of the most beautiful villages in France, where an afternoon and evening is spent, Saint- Remy de Provence, (two nights stay) with its splendid inner- town and one where Van Gogh painted. An excellent time to visit St. Remy de Provence is on Whit Monday, 28/5/12, when the Fete de Transhumance takes place- thousands of sheep, donkeys and goats tour the town prior to going off for their summer grazing in the Alps. A cycle to the local lake just above St. Remy de Provence is a special place for a picnic.
