Next Year's Tour - Provence, Carcassonne and Barcelona Summer 2014

I've always loved this area of France and am excited to take my first small group to visit. This tour will be 12 nights/11 days with 3 nights in Barcelona,  1 night in Collioure, 4 in Avignon and 4 in Carcassonne. 

We'll enjoy a little bit of art, the medieval, a wine tasting,  and hopefully a day in a small village waiting for the riders of the Tour de France to go by. 

Guests  will arrive in Barcelona and we'll drive over.  Arrival night we'll spend in Barcelona, the next day driving to Collioure, with a stop at Cadaques and the Salvador Dali museum.  This area was favored by Matisse and the Fauves, a movement of color created in the area.

Depending on the timing of the Tour de France, we'll spend 4 nights in Avignon, a day of wine-tasting, a visit to the Camargue, and a drive through the lavender.

Carcassonne is known  for it's medieval bastide, a fortified town with two concentric ringed walls surrounding it, sitting on a hill above the town.  Nearby are the ruins of Cathar chateaux, victims of the Albigensian Crusades and the town of Rennes-le-Chateau, town of mystery glorified in the book, The Da Vinci Code.

Barcelona will be our point of arrival and departure, but we'll return for one extra night to enjoy Las Ramblas and something Gaudi.  Las Ramblas is huge thoroughfare down the largest street in Barcelona filled with market vendors from fine jewelry and beautiful art to birds and flowers.
