'When God created the sun, the earth, the mountains and seas, and put them into place, he realized that a little of each element remained. So he gathered the bits together to make a paradise and Provence was born' A nice and nearly true story, isn't it?
On this bike tour you discover Provence and the Camargue - a land of light, colors and scents. Hence, many well-known painters have lived in Provence: Picasso, Van Gogh, Gauguin, Matisse, Cézanne, and Chagall to name just a few.
The Mediterranean climate is pleasant; the sun shines more than 3000 hours a year. People live outside, even during the short, crisp, and windy winter, and play "Pétanque" and drink their "Pastis". A place of true inspiration that lead to a series of amusing books by Peter Mayle!
