6 - 11 days cycling tours starting in Buis-les-Baronnies.
The Mont Ventoux in Vaucluse and the Drôme department will be your companion all along your trip. This huge mountain hides splendid places. Provencal villages as well as beautiful nature. This cycling tour is of light, medium level or top level if you would choose to climb the Mont Ventoux.
Vaison la Romaine (60,000 Romans lived there 2000 years ago as you will see). Vaison has a medieval city and a famous market on Tuesday morning.
Buis-les-Baronnies is a very nice town in Drômedepartment North of the Mont Ventoux.

You see typical towns of Provence (Transalpina for the Latinists) with markets , churches and Roman remnants.

You'll be cycling through Côtes du Rhône Villages-vineyards all along your trip north of the Mont Ventoux. You will cycle the canyon of the Gorges de la Nesque at the Southern side of the Mont Ventoux. You'll visit Abbaye de Senanque and the famous resurging river at Fontaine-de-Vaucluse
(where Petrarca wrote his poems) in the 8- day trip.

In the 10 and 11 days trips you will bike to the Luberon and visit the Colorado Provençal, Apt and nice villages such as St. Saturnin-les-Apt and Roussillon.

Level: This tours has medium and longer stages for every day. It is not a flat landscape so the stages are of medium (Moderate) level.
Starting days : any day of the week from april till november.
Starting place (same cycling tracks): Vaison-la-Romaine or Buis-les-Baronnies.
In Buis-les-Baronnies you will stay in a *** hotel with pool 1000m from the center of the town.

Extra day: We recommend Vaison-la-Romaine. You can see, smell, taste and hear on Tuesday the lively market, you can visit the Roman and the Medieval town and you can make it the start of a tour to the Mont Ventoux

The difference between the standard and these plus packages are the hotels in Vaison-la-Romaine ** BnB 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.

Lavender fields in Drôme
Drôme Provençale


See the .... same sun-drenched poppy fields and starry nights as Van Gogh.
Smell the .... sweet perfume of lavender as it rises from the endless fields.
Taste the .... magic of artisanal olive oil drizzled over Provençal tomatoes.
Touch the .... cool metal surface of the petanque ball before it is thrown.
Hear the .....sounds of an authentic French lively market as in Vaison-la-Romaine.



Bike rental.
