This 6-day self-guided cycle tour of Provence starts off in Grignan and explores some of the most pretty, unspoiled 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 colours of the villages. Along the way, you can explore attractive mediaeval villages with ancient architecture and castles.
