We designed this tour for friends or couples to enjoy shared cycling pleasure with vast varieties of distance, elevation and endurance options. Whether you are seeking a leisurely 60km roll thru the countryside or a strenuous 90km loop over the Giant of Provence (Mt Ventoux), you get to choose your tempo and distance with our expert guidance each day.

Provence, the South of France and leisurely meals are almost synonymous terms for describing a way of life that is far from the hustle-bustle of big cities and the stresses of life. In keeping with a more leisurely approach to life, our cycle-tour of Provence incorporates a few of the many wonderful villages for our nightly rest. Fragrances of the season will intoxicate our senses as we enjoy Provencal feasts prepared by masterful chefs using only the freshest of ingredients.



Provence, perhaps more than any other region, stimulates all of the senses with fragrances, flavors, friends and foto-opportunities beyond words. The colors of Provence are rich and vibrant, dominated by yellow, red, lavender, blue and olive. The leaves on shrubs and trees of the Haute-Provence (upper Provence) will blend into our consciousness to create a visual tapestry of color and texture that one must experience slowly. The produce and products displayed at the weekly markets are ever changing with the seasons; herbs, fruit, vegetables, textiles, cheeses and wines as the local people of Provence share the bounty of their lands and hands.

May 25 TO JUNE 9, 2024

The Provence Itinerary is substantially identical to previous years.  The primary differences are the inclusion of 2 additional “stay over” days along the route: Tourtour and Sault.  In addition, we are returning to one of our favorite family hotels in Seillans.  Final pricing is still pending confirmation of availability for the mixture of rooms typically required for our unique mixture of single and double or twin rooms.  I have secured 10 rooms with each of our hotels; the maximum number of rooms with our smallest hotel is the limiting factor.  As always, Provence arrival/departure airport is Nice Cote d’Azur.
