Our concept of improving health, vitality & wellness goes beyond the bike

We encourage & welcome non-cycling or inexperienced partners to share and benefit from Provence, planning a range of activities for health, pleasure and wellness. There is so much more than cycling to do and see in Provence; world renowned arts, culture and heritage; beautiful ancient hilltop villages; artisan crafts and products; spas and beauty treatments. And the outstanding produce and products and cuisine including Provencal markets, award-winning restaurants and vineyards. In September we provide 2 lunch stop meets with the guided rides, 2 trips to hilltop towns and a visit to a Provencal market. We also have good links to local spas and therapists for some pampering Provence style.
