Reviews for Provence self guided cycling tours, Avignon to Camargue


review 29 Oct 2012

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Seeing the Pont du Gard. This was amazing! The scenery was beautiful, except in the Camargue, and all the villages were very French and full of atmosphere. Cycling through the Montagnettes and Alpilles was lovely. The variety of fruit and vegetables growing in the fields was fascinating as they changed from one area to another.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Cover up very well when in the Camargue as we got bitten to death by mosquitos. The wildlfie in the Camargue was very disappointing. The ponies were mostly shut in small fields with not much to eat waiting for somebody to ride them and the flamingos werre all in the Bird Park. Opt for the Cadran Solaire B&B instead of the Moulin d'Aure in Graveson. The Olivier restaurant in Graveson gave us a fantastic meal vcery reasonably.Go for a B&B basis rather than dinner included if you have specific dietary requirements.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes because all the hotels were locally owned.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Very well organised and very enjoyable. The extra day in the Camargue was not needed especially as there was nothing to do other than the Bird Park and walk around Saintes Maries de la Mer which was very commercialised - a typical seaside town.
