Day 6 Monet’s Garden to Bayeux - Today our first visit is at Monet’s Garden in Giverny where you can see the iconic Japanese Bridge over the waterlily pond. Taking time to explore his house where he lived and painted. After lunch we make our way to the small medieval town of Bayeux with cobbled streets and ½ timbered houses in the Romanesque and Gothic styles. The town has some magnificent restored mills, which are great for filling your memory cards. Our hotel for the next two-nights, Hotel Le Bayeux it is within walking distance to the Cathedral and the famous Bayeux tapestry which was embroidered in honor of William the Conqueror.
Day 18 Day in the Country - This morning we meet our local guide as we take a day in the country. Taking in the Pont du Gard the highest of all Roman aqueduct bridges which is now a UNESCO listed construction. The three-tiered structure that spans the Gardon River. Then we continue to Les Baux de Provence a fortified medieval village, where many of the buildings were carved from the limestone. Les Antiques a funeral monument and triumphal arch, from here you can see in the distance the asylum where Van Gogh was institutionalized. To the stunning hilltop villages of Gordes and Roussillon. No tour of the province is complete without seeing the magnificent lavender fields as we stop at the cultivation centre and museum.
