About your cycling trip in Provence
Your Provence cycling holiday: This self guided short break cycling trip links the towns of Saint Rémy and the Roman town of Arles, to the Gypsy influenced Saintes Maries de la Mer on the Mediterranean Sea. Along seldom-used roads and accompanied by the scent of thyme and rosemary, you’ll ride in the footsteps of Van Gogh, in the plains and hillsides of Provence, through olive groves and vineyards and explore the Camargue : a land of wild open spaces.
You cycle through Provence's history all the way to the Regional Natural Park of the Camargue: extended flatlands of rice paddies and vast salt marshes, sparse farmhouses and windswept fields. White horses trot through the marshes, black bulls graze in their farms. Thousands of flamingoes and herons paint the skies in their graceful flight.
From the Camargue, you reach the secret beaches of one of the few remaining untouched coastlines on the Mediterranean.
