Description

Day 1: Avignon
Individual arrival in Avignon. If you have time, visit the ancient city of Avignon and the Papal Palace, located just a few minutes walk from your hotel.

Day 2: Avignon – Mazan (67 km; +560/-710 m or 80 km; +1000/-1150 m)
A transfer will take you to Bédoin, where you'll receive your bikes. Today you'll cross some of the most famous wine towns of Provence, starting with Beaumes-de-Venise: located in a panoramic position at the foot of the Dentelles de Montmirail, this ancient village gives its name to Muscat de Beaumes de Venise, one of the most appreciated wines in the world. The next will be Vacqueyras, followed by Gigondas and then Séguret, one of the most beautiful villages in France. You'll then head towards Vaison-la-Romaine: divided by the Ouvéze river, the lower half of Vaison-la-Romaine features a myriad of Gallo-Roman ruins – which make it one of the largest archaeological sites in Europe – while the upper half, perched on a rock, is considered a monument to medieval architecture. Before reaching Mazan, you'll have the chance to climb up to the small village of Suzette (1080 m) – an optional uphill detour that will add 20 km to today's stage. Alternatively you'll ride the 10 km from Bédoin to Mazan.

Day 3: Mazan – Sault (39 km; +870/-250 m or 59 km; +1880/-1270 m)
Today, you can choose to cycle up Mont Ventoux, the Giant of Provence, or opt for an easier route through the Nesque Gorges. The first option allows you to pedal on a classic route on Mont Ventoux, which touches the sky at 1912 meters: this famous peak has appeared in the Tour de France 15 times since 1951. The second option descends along the walls of the Nesque Gorges and passes near the Chapelle Saint-Michel, a small 12th century chapel hidden beneath a cliff. You'll stay overnight in Sault, a village as historic as it is beautiful. Surrounded by lavender fields, during the flowering your walk around Sault might resemble a frameless Monet painting in 3D.

Day 4: Sault – Fontaine-de-Vaucluse (58 km; +610/-1290 m)
Today's stage will immerse you in rural Provence: you'll cycle through gentle green hills and timeless villages surrounded by vineyards and orchards. Venasque, designated as one of the most beautiful villages in France, is definitely worth a visit. You'll stay overnight in Fontaine-de-Vaucluse. Nestled at the foot of the Vaucluse Mountains, Fontaine-de-Vaucluse hosts the fifth largest underground spring in the world. Against a backdrop of steep cliffs and draped foliage, the turquoise waters springing from the source certainly deserve to be photographed.

Day 5: Fontaine-de-Vaucluse – Roussillon/Gargas (37 km; +720/-500 m or 53 km; +1020/-810 m)
Today's stage will enchant you by taking you by bike through the heart of Luberon to Gordes: perched on a hill, it is one of the 144 most beautiful villages in France. Ancient stone buildings line its numerous cobbled alleys and arcades, all leading to the Chateau de Gordes, the village's emblem. The nearby Abbey of Sénanque, located beneath Gordes, is also worth a visit. From here you'll cycle through picturesque hilltop villages – Menerbes, Lacoste and Bonnieux – before reaching Roussillon, another of the most beautiful villages in France, and where writer Samuel Beckett lived. Overnight in Roussillon or Gargas.

Day 6: Avignon
After breakfast, a transfer will take you back to Avignon to let you continue your bike adventure or go home. End of services.
