We will pick you up from either Marseille airport or Avignon TGV station and take you to St. Remy de Provence. Check in and explore the beautiful tree lined town square or jump on your bike for a ride into the Alpilles. All our trips can be tailor made so if you prefer to stay elsewhere, just let us know.
As this trip can be made totally bespoke, you can choose what ride you would like to do today but we recommend a circular route taking you to into the foothills if the Alpilles, home at one time to Vincent Van Gogh. Enchanting limestone mountains covered in pine and oak forests will be your vista as you cycle through quaint French cycle towns stopping for a coffee and croissant. Immerse yourself in the tranquillity the Alpilles offers and the picture perfect panoramic views. Discover Aix-en-Provence or cycle up to towns such as Eygalieres.
Nestled within the Mont de Vaucluse lies the sprawling Gordes. One of Provence’s most famous hilltop towns, the town is bursting with beautiful white stone buildings and luscious greenery. Explore the cobbled streets and discover the 10th century chateaux, cellars of the Saint Firmin Palace, Moulin des Bouillons, a former oil mill or Abbey of Senanque.
Known as the “Venice of Provence” this beautiful place is a must see. Take a leisurely cycle along the Sorgue river and if you happen to be visiting on a Sunday, the market dominates the town. Selling everything from antiques, books food and flowers it’s a great opportunity to pick up some local produce or antiques. Whether you visit the market, the countless art galleries or enjoy delicious food in a restaurant overlooking the canal, L’isle Sur-La-Sorgue gives you a great taste of Provence.
This is a circular ride so you reduce this by 5km or add as much as you would like depending on your preference.
Enjoy a leisurely breakfast at the hotel before departing for your homeward travel.
