From Papal Palaces to Pink Flamingos (with a little Van Gogh in between), this is a spectacular journey through Provence, along the backroads and pathways between Avignon & Aigues Mortes.
Days of scenic, easy cycling, 15 – 35 miles per day, are followed amazing hand-crafted meals and additional opportunities to explore the area on foot. If the mileage seems intimidating, electric bikes are available for a nominal fee. And if cycling is not your thing, you can stay on board and simply enjoy the world passing by. If you’re traveling alone, this is a great way to make new friends from around the world. . . . .or to get together with distant friends or relatives. (Sister-acts, in particular, have been very popular on these trips.)
If you do decide to join us on one of our ‘ukulele cruises, we will have the entire barge to ourselves. This, we have found, time and time again, to be the key to ‘ukulele happiness since we really are “all in the same boat.”
But whether or not you join one of our group trips, or venture out on your own, this is a lovely way to experience Provence, an exquisite (and delicious) part of the world and make some new friends at the same time.
The price varies dramatically, depending on the season, so please let us know if an when you’d like to travel. Price includes seven nights aboard a floating hotel, L’Estello or Caprice, and (very delicious) meals and snacks on board. Standard city bikes (with a comfy gel saddle!) and helmets are included, as well as an experienced bicycle guide. Electric bikes are also available for an additional $160.
