A beautiful road cycling holiday in one of the most popular and most visited regions in the whole of France – Provence; and with its diverse landscape, ranging from snow-capped mountains, pancake-flat lavender plains and a stunningly beautiful coastline it’s not difficult to see why.
These things, combined with fantastic food, over 300 days a year of sunshine and an extremely agreeable climate make Provence an irresistible holiday destination. It’s also home to some of the best road cycling in Southern Europe.
Taking advantage of a host of low cost flight options from numerous regional airports in the UK, your cycling holiday starts and finishes in Nice, the glittering capital of the French Riviera. A transfer on arrival day takes us from the coast inland to the medieval village of Saignon in the Luberon Region.
The following day we begin our ride which will ultimately bring us all the way back to the Cote D’Azur. It’s an incredible journey which will take in some of the most impressive routes in Provence, including the Gorges de la Nesque and an ascent to the famous “moonscape” summit of the mighty Mont Ventoux .
Another highlight of the trip is the incredible and dramatic Verdon Gorge, the deepest and most beautiful in Europe and often referred to as the “Grand Canyon of Europe”. Provence
We end the week with a thrilling descent of the Col de Vence which spits us out in the 12th Century Medieval town of Vence where we will spend our final evening together.
