Tour Details

The Carmargue area of Provence is a wonderful area to take an easy self-guided cycling holiday.  “When God created the sun, the earth, the mountains and seas, and put them in place, he realised that a little of each remained. So he gathered the bits together to make a paradise and the Provence was born.” A nice and nearly true story, isn’t it? Provence and Camargue. The land of light, colours and scents. For these reasons, many well-known painters have lived in the Provence: Picasso, Van Gogh, Gauguin, Matisse, Cézanne and Chagall.

The Mediterranean climate is pleasant, the sun shines more than 3000 hours a year. The people are living outside, even during the winter, and play “Pétanque” and drink their “Pastis”. On this biking vacation, you shall see numerous monuments which testify to a long and great past since the Greek and Roman period going to the Middle Ages and, at least, to the last centuries.  And at last, there is the Camargue (nature reserve), the great delta of the Rhone river, where water, channels and seas attract thousands of birds, some of them are very rare; its symbols are the white horses and the black bulls.
