Provence Cycling Holidays

Probably the most beautiful of our French cycling tours, and perhaps the best food. 

Whilst on our Provence cycling tour people are often surprised by the quality of the Roman sites, the Theatre in Orange and the amazing acquaduct at the Pont du Gard.  Our cycling tour also explores interesting wine regions including Chateauneuf du Pape, Tavel, rated by many the finest rosé wine in France, and Les Baux de Provence, one of France's newest Appellations. 

Our last three days are spent in the Lubéron National Park, made famous  in Peter Mayle's 'Year In provence'.  It's hilly, but this is the most beautiful part of Provence - worth every pedal stroke. 

Trip details

Hilly, but beautiful; we start and finish in Villeneuve-les-Avignon; 8 days / 7 nights. This tour is available as a self-guided option.

Tour dates

We have just returned from a brilliant holiday in the Dordogne with the Chain Gang. I just wanted to drop you an email to let you know what a fabulous time we had and how great Pete was to have alongside us. He is the perfect combination of mechanic, butler and court jester. You can tell him that!

I have no doubt that we will join a tour next summer too. Possibly in Provence next time.

Finally, I wondered if you could tell us what bikes we were riding? We have decided to buy ones as similar as possible as they were so good

Great week in the Dordogne, great bikes. Lyndsay Parker, UK
