Cycling holidays for everyone 

Why cycle not on the colorful paths of Provence, where smells, tastes, nature and culture mix so beautifully?

Who has not dreamed of being among the postcard-perfect surroundings of this region in France, with its vibrant colors?

Vineyards, fragrant lavender fields and centuries-old olive groves will surround you with the backdrop of the legendary Mont Ventoux or Dentelles de Montmirail.

You will cycle between the Vaucluse and the Drôme on almost deserted country roads with a few short drops that are within reach of even casual cyclists.

Breaks are taken in Orange, Suze-la-Rousse, Grignan or Vaison-la-Romaine, which will open up pages of history to you. What else needs to be said about stops to taste the local culinary specialties, except that they will be sun-filled experiences?

Choose 8 days, 4 days, a bespoke trip, and more! You can pedal at your own pace!

If you select 8 days, here is a suggested route:

Start your stay in Avignon, which is impressive thanks to the Palais des Papes, then head on your bike towards the vineyards of Chateauneuf-du-Pape to reach Orange and its ancient theater. Continue to Séguret, the most beautiful village in France, where you will need go to the inevitable Vaison-la-Romaine. Your itinerary then takes you to the foot of the mythical Mont Ventoux in Bedouin and Mazan. Next, head south, cross the old capital of the Comtat Venassien, Pernes-les-Fontaines, before falling under the spell of the canals of L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue where your Provencal bike trip ends.
