Provence and the Luberon

Whilst the famous Mont Ventoux may be the first feature of the region on every cyclist’s lips, there are many other good reasons for visiting this region.

The proximity to the Mediterranean as well as the local Mistral weather system offers every chance of blue skies and fine, clear weather. The region enjoys 300 days of sunshine a year on average and cycling is very comfortable for many months of the year.

The inland area of the Luberon offers unrivalled views and quiet roads away from the busy Cote D’Azur and has an abundance of great climbs which remain snow free unlike the more mountainous Alps. We are based in the Luberon National Park with very easy access to some of the region's best known cycling terrain. In our opinion the winning factor is the sheer volume and variety of rides. We are able to offer rides as flat or as mountainous as you would wish, all with breathtaking scenery and wonderfully fresh, clean air. You will be guided through steep gorges and open valleys passing vineyards, olive groves and lakesides and stopping in picturesque hill top villages to enjoy the delights of french cafes.
