Les Baux to Avignon 40km
Hotel Mignon
Today we began with a beautiful ride through the Alpilles with a long descent into St. Remy. Everyone has likely seen an image of St. Remy without realizing it. The town is immortalized in perhaps Van Gogh’s best known painting “Starry Night”. Van Gogh committed himself to a convent hospital for a year in St. Remy where he painted at least 150 paintings.

We are now in Avignon where we will likely spend a few nights before continuing on a loop through the Luberon.

It’s not all sunflowers and irises though. It turns out our swanky hotel from last night was infested with bed bugs and we have lots of big itchy welts! I wonder if Churchill suffered the same fate there. We will never give up…
