Provence Bike

7 Days Advanced / Challenging

This is rural France at its finest – a journey in time and beautiful, sun-dappled space, with mesmerizing smells, entrancing scenery, captivating history, unparalleled southern French hospitality, and Provençale tastes combining heaven with earth. The cycling is fabulous, on quiet roads through lush countryside, with options for both relaxed hedonists and eager explorers. From St. Rémy-de-Provence, you will ride to the hilltop fort of Les Baux, influenced by troubadours through the ages. From there, you will head towards the hills of the Luberon, declared a natural park because of its profound beauty. Medieval villages perched on hilltops look down on farms and vineyards interlaced with roads so well suited to quiet cycling that many of them have petite cyclistes on the road signs! You will explore one quiet, stone village after another, sometimes stopping at sunny street side cafés or resting at little fountains, watching farmers tend their lines of vines, or tasting wine and honey, and sometimes riding on long routes through quiet and beautiful terrain, always resting in tranquil lodges. You will cross the Luberon to ride through Picasso and Cezanne country, passing innumerable vineyards and through pretty, sleepy villages. This is one of our favourite rides anywhere, and we are happy to be offering it again in 2013. Overall, the trip’s colours, scents, and tastes enhance the sunshine magnificently, filling each day with the sensual pleasure that makes French exploring so rewarding.
