We start from Arles with very strong wind that seemed to come from all directions. It was our acquaintance with the Mistral and we did not find it funny. We decides it was time for us to move ahead and get to Spain. We moved quickly, so to speak, towards the borders, making only a couple of stops along the way. Two days later we are in Cadaques.
On our way to Arles, we come by Les-Baux-de-Provence one of the most visited places by tourists in France equal to Mont Saint-Michel! Seen from afar it is definitely impressive though when you come closer, you start seeing that it is another ghost town / museum. Short walk and then, finally, we arrive at our beloved city.
We move past Saint Remy de Provence without stopping by since we can’t find a decent parking lot. We finally park in the outskirts of the village, just a few hundred meters away, close to the remains of the ancient Roman mausoleum and to the mental clinic where Van Gogh was hospitalized. We decide to stay for the night and to visit both places in the morning.
