Private Guided Bike Tour Around Saint Rémy and the Provencal Countryside from...
Ranked #2 of 8 things to do in Tarascon
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 August 2011

We were just looking for a place to have lunch and kill a few hours after picking up our car at the TGV station in Avignon and needing to be southeast for our gite check-in later in the afternoon. What a treat! We stayed on the much less traveled east side of the Rhone south and near Tarascon. This hilly area has hiking paths and cyclists everywhere, along with the remains of many old french windmills and right there in the middle of it all is a beautiful old, thousand year old +, abbey. They even have a 2 star hotel, but we didn't learn anything about that, on this trip at least, but the restaurant is what we LOVED. The food is all fresh, grown right on the grounds. We had guinea fowl - it was a 4 course meal and after another 3.5 weeks in France, still one of our dearest lunches in memory. LOVED this place. Peaceful and gorgeous, food was incomparable and the monks that were in one of the chapels singing.... ahhh, what a memory. Next time we'll go back and stay there and enjoy the beauty in the hiking trails all around in the Montagnette and EAT! Travel moment of pure serendipity.
