The magic of Provence is truly best seen by bicycle. Our route takes us through landscapes captured by the impressionists and well-known vineyards, past Roman artifacts and through colorful villages. Along the way we’ll sample Provencal cuisine and complimentary wines grown on the hillsides of this special region of France. Peter Mayle’s books capture the essence of this region but you’ll know it even better as you pedal along small country roads through air infused with the aromas of Herbs de Provence and colorful flowers. Charming hotels will host us in Provencal style. Looking for a challenge? How about pedaling up the famous “Giant of Provence”, Mount Ventoux which often is featured during the Tour de France.
