Avignon Walk & Eat Competition

Win a copy of Sunflower Book's Avignon in their Walk and Eat Series

Courtesy of Sunflower Books we have 3 copies of this pocket guide to give away.

This pocket-sized guide is designed for short-break holidays in Provence. Avignon is easy to get to by train (TGV) or low-cost airlines which serve both Avignon and Nimes. From Avignon you can travel to the other cities and towns in the book easily, with frequent, fast local train and bus services - no need to even hire a car. All the walks described are easy, plus you will find the city plans, descriptions of the sights, and restaurant recommendations useful. For each suggested restaurant there is a photograph of the decor and one of their dishes, plus sample menu, price guide, opening times, and a recipe for one of their specialities. Besides the three major cities, the book visits many other highlights of Provence: St-Remy, Les Baux, the Alpilles, Barbentane, Gordes and the Pont du Gard. Other sections include: planning your trip, getting about, food shopping (including health foods and local markets), glossary of food terms and a restaurant mini-vocabulary. On-line updates keep readers abreast of any route or restaurant changes.

Sunflower Books publish the ‘Landscapes’ Series, the ‘Walk&Eat' series and the Sunflower ‘Complete' series. Their authors know their chosen landscapes intimately; many live in the area, others visit frequently. They have written these books because they see the beauty and interest in these regions and want to share it.

You can read what we thought of the book on our blog pages.

A short break in Avignon can easily be added to our independent or guided walking holiday in the Baronnies:

Guided Walking Holiday Secret Provence: Les Baronnies

We also offer a tailor made guided walking holiday in the Luberon, and Avignon and its Provence landscapes are explored:
