  1. It seems that the commenting issue has been rectified. I love this view, Debbie. I spent three months in Aix-en-Provence when I was 17 and the nuns used to take me all around Provence, but I don’t know why they skipped Avignon and Arles. I will have to find time and money to go there. I have been enjoying your posts from Provence.

    1. Yes, it’s a beautiful area. I went to Arles, Nimes, Orange, Avignon, Aix and Marseille when I was 20. Many of the cheap airlines now fly into Marseille and Montpellier and there’s a great train service linking them to all major towns. So with forward planning I think it can be done at a reasonable price. I can recommend a good bed and breakfast in Arles, called Mi Casa.

      1. There’s quite a lot of parking nearby, but most of it charges. However, Mi Casa does have a small garage – you have to arrange that when booking. There are a few free car parks nearby and I would say the one at the station could be useful but your knees would not want the 20 minute walk every day. http://www.bed-and-breakfast-arles.com/arles-access.html

        We had the whole house for our workshop but I met the owners when they returned from their own holiday and they were friendly and helpful. If you contact them, tell them you’ve been recommended by Debbie who was on the Epes Workshop and they should be extra helpful (I know he is a friend of theirs)

      2. Thank you very much, Debbie. This is all so very helpful, but I can’t organise a trip over there any time soon. Not in a year or longer.

    1. I actually tried out a few hotels and liked them all. I’m hard pushed to name many nicer areas than this. Arles itself is a beauty, and it’s very close to the Camargue and all those beautiful white horses!
