This has to be one of our favourite areas.
Riding northeast from St Rémy to the mountainous region immortalised by Peter Mayle in “A year in Provence”, the run to the Luberon wine region is a relaxing ride through hidden Provence.
Marvel at the ascent to the spectacular mountain villages of Gordes, Bonnieux, and Goult, and enjoy the ride as we breeze through the lush valleys at Lourmarin, Roussillon, and Lacoste.
The Luberon range is broken into two parts –le Petit Luberon on the west side and le Grand Luberon on the east, and the landscape between, crossing le Plateau de Vaucluse, as far north as towering (1909m) Mt Ventoux.
We have several different tours through this region as there is so much to see. To try and do it all in one day would certainly defeat the purpose of the visit!
A beautiful day out this ride is very relaxing and should never be rushed! This gentle run through premium wine country is suitable for all riders and is unsurprisingly an extremely popular pillion choice.
