Provence : detailed knowledge anyone?

Jump to last reply

We (myself & wife both 46 & son 10) are in the midst of planning a trip to Provence for Easter 2016.

We will drive from the UK with our road bikes, take the ferry to Caen and then drive down to Provence. We have very little knowledge of the area. We intend to rest for 3 nights, maybe around the large towns on the Rhone which probably will not be cycle friendly.

We then want leave the car at the first hotel and cycle tour with panniers for around 8 nights. We could then either take a train back to the car or the tour could be circular.

My son is 10 but has an expensive road bike and is very comfortable with cycling 40-50 miles a day.

We would rather avoid very mountainous areas.

Could anyone help ? villages, restaurants, hotels : budget not an issue but prefer laid back rather than formal.

We like everything small : villages, hotels etc but also want to see the towns like Avignon and Arles.

I can't work out where the classic Provence landscape areas are!

Thanks
