Starting place (same cycling tracks): Vaison-la-Romaine, Buis-les-Baronnies or Venasque (no bike rental).
In Buis-les-Baronnies you will stay in a *** hotel with pool 1000m from the center of the town.

The difference between the standard and the plus package are the hotels in Vaison-la-Romaine ** B & B versus *** with pool and half-board(demi pension) in the Medieval town and the size and comfort of the rooms in the other hotels.

In all hotels : Shower/bath en suite.
