Transfer from a defined picking point to Le Phénicien which is moored in Aigues-Mortes. It is time for a free visit of this 14th century walled city rising from a flat landscape from which St Louis set sail on his Holly Crusades.
Our first dinner on board gives an indication of the high standard of cuisine that will be served during the cruise and the accompanying wines have been specially chosen from top-notch local vineyards.
This morning we sail down to the Camargue as we head east on the Canal du Rhône à Sète that links the Petit Rhône with the étangs, those inland seas that nudge the Med to the south of Montpellier. We moor in Gallician, a quiet and typical village.
What would you say about a nice trip in the deep heart of the wild Camargue?
This afternoon: Golf de La Grande Motte, 18 holes, PAR 72, 6161 m. Designed by Robert Trent Jones Senior, this famous golf course meanders through The Camargue landscapes. Black bulls and pink flamingoes are not far.
The most impressive navigation is for today! We cruise the canal, the petit Rhône and the Rhône river to reach the Roman city of Arles, the open-air museum of Provence
Our guided visit in Arles this afternoon will delve deep into antiquity and, at the same time, unravel the joys and despair of Van Gogh who painted 300 canvases during his year here in 1888.
And so on the Rhône river, we pass trough the huge 36 feet high lock of Beaucaire, and we reach Aramon, a quiet and charming little port where it is good to rest, have a bike ride or play the pétanque under the plane trees.
Golf de Manville. Top ranking French golf and the unique experience of playing golf within Cezanne’s favorite landscapes.
After about 3 hours of cruise, we dock in Villeneuve lès Avignon this morning. 30 minutes away from this old residential city of the Popes, the gigantic Roman aqueduct “Le Pont du Gard”, its recently made-up site and its modern museum are waiting for you. After this intriguing guided visit we get back to the barge where we will spend the night.
This morning we play at the Golf Grand Avignon, 18 holes, PAR 72, 6046 m. Charming and quiet golf with bunkers and lakes. Uncommon covered practice area over water.
After your round of golf, we will join the Papal city of Avignon for a free visit
Farewell dinner and overnight in Avignon!
