La belle vie - biking in Provence
The Provence region is like a living museum of the Roman heyday. But the Middle Ages have also left traces here, with a precious presence of buildings, castles and churches. The town of Orange has around 30.000 inhabitants, and within its city walls you will find, amongst other things, the best preserved antique theatre in France and a Roman arch of triumph. Your hotel for the week, Le Glacier, a cosy and family run establishment, is located in a quiet part of the town, close to a market square and the pedestrian streets of the old town, with a rich choice of restaurants and small shops. On Thursday monings you can experience a genuin Provence market just outside your window. Before departure, you will receive five detaild route descriptions for easy cycled daytrips. The routes serpent through vineyards, olive groves and sunflower fields to the old pope town Avignon, the vineyards of Chateauneuf-du-Pape as well as other less renowned, yet charming, sleepy provencal villages.
