Malaucene transportation

I will not have a car and want to get to Malaucene in Provence. I understand that one can get there by taxi from Avignon, but I do not know the name of the taxi company. Is there a town nearer to Malaucene that can be reached by public transportation and would have a taxi?

There are probably several taxi companies in Avignon. How are you getting to Avignon? If by train, there should be taxis at the train station. If you're staying in a hotel in Avignon, have the hotel call one for you. Here's the site for the Malaucène Tourist Office - if nothing else works, email them and ask.

Malaucène is just on the other side of Carpentras. So you could look into taking a bus from Avignon to Carpentras (just ask at the tourist office in Avignon) and then I am sure there are buses quite regularly from Carpentras to Malaucène - nice village, by the way. I am sure you'll enjoy it and the surrounding countryside is very pretty.

StCirq and Kevin, thanks very much for your replies. From the website I found the e-mail address for the Malaucene tourist office, but my message was rejected. I was able to send an e-mail to the Carpentras tourist office though. My itinerary is not firm yet except for the time in Malaucene from June 4-11 where I will be hiking with a group. I have thought about taking the train from Paris to Brive on May 28,renting a car there, spending a few days in the Dordogne area, driving south and returning the car in Avignon. I am open to any suggestions.

Hi, Keke:

If you're interested in the Dordogne, I'd be more than happy to help out. It's my second home and I know a bit about the area.

Dear StCirq,
Thanks for your offer of more information on the Dordogne. I have seen some of your replies and value your knowledge. I would like to ask some questions. I am new to this forum, is there a way for me to direct my inquiries to you or indicate in some way that I want you to read the message?

Ask questions on this message board, like you already have done. That way we all can beneift from St Cirq's (and others) reply. Just post a new inquery & title it something like "Dordogne questions" I'm sure St Cirq will answer it as soon as she can.

Keke:

Just post here (start a new thread if you like). Unless I'm traveling, which I'm not for the next couple of months, I'll see your post and respond.
