    Signature

    We use premium hotels that are unique expressions of the region. Often they’ve had a previous life as a monastery or a castle, but in every case they offer an exceptionally comfortable stay.

    Bistro

    These are stylish 4-star properties that offer a casual and comfortable stay. Often without a 24-hour concierge or room service, they tend to be smaller family-run hotels that are perfect for the region.

Activity Level What’s Included Gear

Enthusiast

The trip alternates relatively flat routes with some hilly rides. Distances average 45 km (28 mi.) with longer options on some days, including a spectacular ride of 88 km (50 mi.) through the Gorges de la Nesque. In general, you follow small, quiet roads, though it can be busier in and around towns and at the river crossing. Routes go through vineyards, olive groves, forests, orchards, and charming towns in Les Alpilles, the Ventoux wine region, and the Lubéron.

The Traveller

“I bike about once a week at home.”

The Terrain

Gently rolling countryside, with occasional longer climbs to points that are well worth the effort. Layover days accommodate varying preferences.
