Provence Cycling Holidays

Provence Cycling Holidays
Probably the most beautiful of our French cycling tours, and probably the best food. 
The most beautiful parts of Provence are the Lubéron National Park and the Alpilles, and of course we'll spend plenty of time exploring them. They're both hilly, but no hills means no views!
We'll see spectacular Roman sites in Orange and St Remy, and we'll visit an olive farm to explore the mysteries of olive oil production.
Provence also boasts some wonderful wines, including the world-famous Chateauneuf du Pape as well as the neighbouring appéllations of Gigondas, Vacqueyras and Beaumes de Venise. We've organised a series of wine tastings, where we'll be able to reflect on the beauty of the Abbey de Senanque and its spectacular lavender fields. 

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
