Hotels:

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

Enthusiast

The trip alternates relatively flat routes with some hilly rides. Distances average 45 km (28 mi.) with longer options every day, including a spectacular ride of 80 km (50 mi.) and the climb up the Gorges de la Nesque. In general, we follow small, quiet roads, though it can be busier in and around towns and at river crossings. Routes go through vineyards, olive groves, forests and charming towns.
