La Loubiere, Provence vacation
I'll be vacationing with family for a week or 2 in Provence this summer at a Chateau called La Loubiere. My siblings and assorted family members will be staying at the rental for a week, but I thought I might bring my touring/camping gear and hit the road for an additional week by myself. I was thinking to bring a so-so bike and try to sell it or just leave it behind given the expense of flying with a bike.
Plus- I don't speak a word of French but will probably take some beginner course before I leave.
Any advice for a solo traveler who doesn't speak the language? And any travel routes would also be appreciated.
