The small roads meander along fields of lavender, olive trees or vineyards: it’s the true smell of Provence! During our last trip, we were once again dazzled by the ochre of the Luberon, the dominant panoramic views or the authentic character of the old villages.
Kilometre after kilometre, the landscapes revealed are of striking beauty and for a change, you can also discover the most picturesque places of Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, Arles and even push on to Avignon or ride the opposite way to Manosque.
The terrain is very manageable, without too many climbs and of course you can use electrical assistance on the steepest slopes should you wish.
What’s more, we have tested some beautiful roads that allow going from the Drôme Provençale or the Alpilles to the Luberon. This holds the promise of a journey full of variety, which will multiply the discoveries you can make.
To begin to immerse yourself in this Provençal atmosphere and the natural, architectural and historical beauties on hand, discover our example of cycling in the Luberon and the Alpilles.
Examples of indicative prices:
Circuit for 2 persons for 4 days and 3 nights half-board: € 480/per person
Circuit for 4 persons for 7 days and 6 nights half-board : €780/per person
You arrive in a small part of southeastern France, of incomparable richness and variety. It is here that the heart of Provence beats. Over the centuries, the Luberon has preserved its vast cultural heritage and its natural wonders.
You will enjoy wandering in many medieval villages such as Gordes, Ménerbes, Oppède-le-Vieux, Lacoste..., which were built on the heights. Perched high on narrow spaces, they offer magnificent views of the surrounding countryside.
You will also discover a massif with lush vegetation and exceptional fauna, which makes it a Regional Natural Park. Marvel at the ochre cliffs in Roussillon or those of Colorado Provençal de Rustrel.
A land of wines and local products, you can complete this journey by delighting your senses with incomparable flavours and aromas at the markets or directly from local producers.
Cypress hedges, olive groves, vineyards, heath, Romanesque chapels, almond trees... In the centre, a rocky island emerges, the jagged white peaks of which offer a wonderful view of the whole of the Pays d'Arles which spreads out below.
When you visit the prestigious sites of Les Baux-de-Provence and Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, you will understand why these two wonders are renowned for their magnificent heritage!
But you will also discover and appreciate all the richness and diversity of the Alpilles through the picturesque character of its villages, monuments and archaeological sites which recall the spirit of more than 4,000 years of civilization.
