PROVENCE & THE ARDECHE
9th to 26th June 2021
This 18-day tour focuses on inland Provence and the Ardeche, the area immortalised by Peter Mayle’s ‘A Year in Provence’. Avoiding the over-commercialised south coast, this tour is characterised by stunning mountains in the Haute Alps, medieval cities, idyllic hill-top towns and villages, wide open plains, ridges and gorges. In Provence, our route takes us from Avignon in the west, passing around Gordes in the Luberon and on to Sisteron in the mountains. On our route to and from Provence we visit the rugged charms of the Ardeche region in the Rhone-Alpes, best known for its caves, gorges and valleys. This area is one of the most beautiful in France.
