I'm planning to visit Provence in a couple of weeks. After 2 days in Gordes, I want to go more closed to Camargue: do you suggest the following 3 days in Arles or Avignon?
My daughter and I will be visiting he Camargue in May 2012. We do not speak French.I walk with a cane. Are there boat, jeep or other tours in English? If we drive to the park will the trails around the ponds be too long for me? We will be traveling for the day from Lourmarin. Any suggestions?
I will go to Parc.. in end of June. Is there any activity I cannot miss there? How much time I should plan to stay there?
Hi, I am planning to visit Camargue in October. Can anyone enlighten me if this is a good time to visit? Anywhere I can book a horse riding tour (for amateurs) prior to arrival, or do I have to just pick a stable when I am there? Could I also check how much it costs? Is 1 day enough to see all the highlights? Is there any website besides the official one which is in French? Many thanks!!!
Hello - have heard you can't take bicycles on French trains - has anyone got to Provence from the UK, via public transport - I want to take my bike but not so keen on flying there as don't want to have to take my bike apart or use a bike bag. Any advice appreciated!
Want to go there to cycle through lots of fields of sunflowers and lavender. If anyone can suggest anywhere else to do this thats closer (in France or not far from UK) then please let me know!!
After many years of hoping, I am going to the Gypsy festival at St Maries de la Mer this May. My plan is to arrive on the 23rd and stay overnight in Arles for 3 nights but I havent booked anywhere yet. I will be going to the evening and day festivities. So any advice from anyone about accomodation or anything else? Has anyone been to the festival? I am a woman travelling alone, any advice? thankyou in advance.
I will be going to France in October and after a few days in Paris, would like to go to Provence. I would like to be outside a city but near enough to it to visit the Parc at La Camargue. I am a birder and nature lover (don't like long hikes though!). So would love suggestions about cities I can travel to from Paris and then settle outside that city for some experience of semi-rural Provence. Any and all suggestions welcomed, about best ways to travel, places to stay and so on. Thanks so much.
