Dominated by rugged mountains and lavender fields, Provence has been inhabited since ancient times and boasts some fabulous Roman architecture. The region is famously associated with cycling due to the Tour de France, but away from the challenging summits you'll find plenty of relaxing riding. The scenery is unsurpassed as we ride from village to village and soak in the landscapes of vineyards, poppy and lavender fields that captivated the artist Paul Cézanne. With time to discover typical Provencal market towns and sample the local food and wine, there is also plenty to enjoy when you're out of the saddle.
