Self-Guided Cycling in Provence & the Luberon

Fantastic cycling adventure

5
This was an amazing cycling trip through the Luberon National Park and Provence. Every day took us through beautiful countryside and there were plenty of opportunities to stop for coffee and experience Provencal village life. All the hotels were good quality the jewel in the crown being the two nights at Charembeau, an amazing setting and lovely people. We cycled in early September and it was into the mid thirties somedays, we were told this was unseasonable hot and it was a bit too warm one day. We hired the hybrid bikes which were ideal as some road surfaces would not have been ideal for road bikes. The swimming pools at two of the hotels were great to cool down in after a day cycling. We did have a slight problem on arrival with the first night hotel booking and bike hire but this was quickly resolved by Exodus. Overall the organisation was very good and we were able to navigate using the trip notes.

A week in Provence

This is a great trip round the varied landscapes of Provence. The route has been well thought out, taking you through some stunning landscapes and beautiful villages. The directions provided were really detailed and mostly easy to follow. The accommodation was all ok but the hotel Charembeau was by far the best, and one of the nicest places you could ever wish to stay.

Brilliant

Just come back from this cycling holiday and I must say it was fabulous. The hybrid bike, although a little dated, was very well maintained and the right bike for the trip. The route notes were very detailed and easy to follow. The accommodation was lovely, one in particular was a really great place to relax after a long day in the saddle. The routes were great and scenery spectacular. On the two "rest days" I managed to climb a couple of mountains. Both were worth the effort with amazing views from the summit.

A brilliant trip!

We had a great trip overall, the hotel staff were always really friendly & helpful, and of course, food and wine were excellent. We felt that we were really in the thick of it, visiting old villages and staying in authentic French hotels. We travelled early April and the first few days were overcast but it cleared up for the last few days. Temperatures were in the range 5-18°C (warm clothes needed).

A stunning trip. You have to appreciate that its not like cycling at home and the pace is slower simply because it is hilly but the payback is stunning scenery and great challenges. We could have benefited from maps on a Garmin or equivalent - sometimes we got lost Food and hotels were good - only the first nights meal was disappointing

We booked this after another trip fell through but it was great. Stunning scenery. Could get there by Eurostar/TGV. Accommodation far better than we expected. We hope to revisit one of the places.
