On this Provence day trip holiday, we leave the charming village of Saint Remy by bike, where Van Gogh spent the last year of his life, and did some of his most important work.  We cycle along quiet country roads, pedaling alongside the foot of the jagged Alpilles mountains. We pass vast farms and olive groves, including a working olive mill for a tasting. The Alpilles is the largest olive-oil producing region in France.
Rounding the mountain we reach the perched village of Les Baux de Provence, the remains of its castle sitting dizzyingly above the valley below. After visiting the village and a nice lunch, we enjoy a wine tasting before a final exhilarating and winding descent back to Saint Rémy.
