This 6-day self-guided cycle tour of Provence starts off in Grignan and explores some of the most pretty, unspoilt locations of this delightful region of France. Here you have landscapes so beautiful they were captured on the canvasses of Cézanne and Van Gogh, among many. This tour is packed with sensory delights as this area of France is renowned for its vineyards and olive groves and endless lavender fields. Accompanying the sweet smells in the air, the countryside flashes a splendid mix of purples, deep greens and soft greys which look idealistic against the stone colors of the villages. Along the way, you can explore attractive mediaeval villages with ancient architecture and castles.

Provence offers a great choice for foodies as the sunny Mediterranean climate makes for some wonderful fresh cuisine. There are many wines, cheeses and pressed olive oils to taste, as well as many restaurants to choose from, all selling delectable cuisine made from locally sourced produce. The area is famous for truffles and there are various local truffle markets to visit. Provence is a fascinating mix of vineyards and Mediterranean cuisine, olive & essential oils including lavender, medieval hilltops, mountain ranges & ochre quarries, and brilliant light that attracts (and attracted) so many artists. Long hot summers make it a very popular destination.

This tour is best suited to those who cycle regularly as there are some hilly sections that will test your stamina and some areas that are quite mountainous.  The views you get from this tour are sensational, so a little bit of extra sweat is definitely worth it!
