Abundant sunshine, brilliant colors, incomparable scenery, splendid world-class regional wines and exquisite local cuisine!

Join us for 10 wonderful days and nights cycling the beautiful rural Vaucluse region of Provence France, home of abundant sunshine, brilliant colors, incomparable scenery, splendid world-class regional wines and exquisite local cuisine! Our fixed base tour lodging in the medieval village of Vaison la Romaine (Vaison) is poised high above the modern city of Vaison, a Roman archeological wonder. Old and new Vaison are split by the Ouveze River but conveniently connected by a medieval Roman bridge which you will cross many times as you wander back and forth between the old and new worlds of the villages.

Our location is conveniently positioned a few short kilometers from the base of Mont Ventoux, one of the most famous and iconic stages and climbs of the Tour de France. And YES, you will have the opportunity to ride to the summit of Mont Ventoux on one of our daily rides, an unforgettable and exhilarating experience!
