Mont Ventoux & Provence

Spend a week road cycling classic Provence where rolling vineyards and ancient hilltop villages meet the mighty Mont Ventoux. Roll through the laid back lavender fields of the Luberon and relax poolside post ride. 

From L’Isle sur la Sorgue pedal north through the Vaucluse to the Roman jewel of Vaison la Romain, famed for Côtes du Rhône wine. Cycle across the Dentelles de Montmirail and take on the ’Giant of Provence’, Mont Ventoux (1911m). The rugged Gorge de la Nesque leads to the classic Luberon Valley where rolling routes pass through the ochre town of Roussillon and artistis’ hangout of Gordes. Finish each day dining on Provencal delights such as Daube, a beef and red wine stew.
