About the Provence day trip: walking in St Remy - Easy

About the guided day trip in St Remy de Provence

Group rate for 4 persons ( contact us if less or more)

You will discover the famous Van Gogh provence ! Starting from the centre of Saint Remy with your guide, you stroll along country lanes towards the spectacular Alpilles mountains. You begin a pleasant climb up a shaded and winding track, up a valley laden with pine and cedar trees. Before long,  you reach the crest of the Alpilles Mountains along a rocky trail that leads to a rounded summit where the 360° view, on a clear blue Provence  day, extends all the way to the Mediterranean Sea. 

We return to Saint Remy where we'll visit the monastery - turned asylum - where Van Gogh spent the last year of his life. And depending on the season and the opening hours - if time permits - you can enjoy a tasting of some of the region’s famed olive oils.

    3 hours - 10km / 6.2 miles - Ascent: +300 m / Descent: -300 m

The walk

  • The walk is 10km long in total, and you can expect up to 3.5 of walking time along the trails. The paths are easy underfoot but are rocky: you can choose to wear hiking boots but running shoes are sufficient if you're used to walking on uneven surfaces.
