About the trip in Provence
This stunningly beautiful region in the South of France can be just as exciting in winter as during the busy hot summer months. Its mild temperatures and bright blue skies reveal a very different kind of charm in the low season and the places are less crowded and overrun. On this 6-day easy self-guided walking holiday in Provence, you will explore two of Provence’s most important mountain ranges: the Alpilles & the Luberon.
Your trip starts in medieval Avignon : you have a free day to enjoy the famous Pope’s Palace. For food & wine lovers, you have the choice to enjoy : a food tour, a wine tour in through the famous Chateauneuf du Pape vineyards, a cooking class (with supplement).
You move on to explore the Alpilles mountains and stay in the artsy town of St Remy and walk through landscapes made famous by the brush stoke of Vincent van Gogh. You continue onwards to Isle sur la Sorgue - also known as the Provencal Venice - with its year-round colorful Sunday morning market and walk to the breathtaking village of Gordes.
