Die Pont Saint-Bénézet in Avignon

When you think of Provence, what comes to mind? Purple lavender fields, vibrant markets, and sprawling vineyards, right? You're absolutely correct - but there's even more to discover! Join us in Gargas and uncover the hidden gems of this enchanting French region during this seven-day vacation. Of course, you'll have ample time to indulge in Provençal delights - whether it's wine, fragrant baguettes, or delectable fruit and vegetable creations.

From Gargas and your hotel, you set off each day on diverse daily stages of between 40 and 70 kilometers. Initially, the route takes you along the traces of ochre mining. You will discover the history of the ochre industry during a visit to a quarry and  be captivated by the bright colors of the landscape. L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue attracts visitors on day 3 with its beautiful town center, plan a detour to the Fontaine-de-Vaucluse.

Two stages lead to the Luberon mountain range and its corresponding nature park. The sight of the rock formations above Buoux and the panoramic views of Saignon are rewards in themselves. Alongside the stunning landscapes, you'll traverse charming villages like Ménerbes and Oppede-le-Vieux. The concluding leg of the journey brings you to Roussillon and Gordes.

  • The dazzling colors and beguiling scents of Provence: The picturesque scenery of lavender fields, olive groves, and sun-drenched vineyards is truly a dream come true. Cycling paths wind through quaint villages and historic towns, allowing you to immerse yourself in the unique nature of fragrant pine forests and explore the culture through ancient ruins.
  • Venetian flair in L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue: This charming town in Provence is renowned for its ancient water wheels and scenic canals. Take a leisurely stroll along the charming riverside promenade, peruse antique markets, and bask in the relaxed atmosphere of cozy cafés.
  • Wonderful views from the Luberon: Along the limestone mountain range, you'll discover medieval villages nestled amidst stunning natural landscapes. Renowned for its excellent wines and top-notch Provençal cuisine, the region offers an authentic and genuine experience, exemplified by villages like Bonnieux and, of course, Ménerbes.

The picturesque cycling stages provide magnificent views and unforgettable impressions of the region. Over five stages, you'll cover approximately 270 kilometers, navigating terrain that can be quite hilly at times. Your accommodations at the Mas De La Tour, a typical local house dating back to the 12th century, provides rest and relaxation. Rest assured, the daily tours have been meticulously planned by our experienced team for your enjoyment.

Let yourself be enchanted by the beauty of Provence on your cycling tour - and at the same time, explore the diverse range of our cycling holidays throughout France.

Later, cycle through the Colorado Provencal, a unique landscape that glows in a variety of ochre colours.

A visit to L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue is undoubtedly a must on any tour of Provence. On Sundays, one of the most beautiful markets attracts visitors to the pretty little town, which is known throughout France for its many antique shops. It is also worth making a detour to the Fontaine-de-Vaucluse, one of the largest springs in France.
