Provence Luberon

Provence Luberon

Cycling through the nature park.

From Aix-en-Provence you start towards North. Nowhere else you can see the Provence as good as in this region. Enjoy the famous village Gordes, the well-known city Rousillon and the castle of the Marquis de Sade in Lacoste. The author Peter Mayle once described the landscape and the people in Luberon with a lot of love. We are sure you will entitle his love…

Itinerary

Stroll through the lanes of the old city, walk on the tracks of Cézannes and enjoy your time in one of the numerous Cafés.

Today you start your tour to Silvacane. We recommend visiting abbey Silvacane, a Cistercian ab-bey of this region. Afterwards you will get to know a few of the most beautiful villages on your ride to Pertuis.

Your tour becomes more ambitious. You cycle through the nature park of Luberon where you will manage an altitude of 700 m. Afterwards you cycle downhill through the nature park to Céreste and along the range of Grand Luberon to Apt.

Again you cross the nature park, where you will pass villages like Bonnieux, Lacoste and Méner-bes. At the end Isle-sur-la-Sorgue with its romantic water wheels is awaiting you (approx 55 km). Or you want to do a more.

Via Cavaillon you cycle to St. Rémy, the most typical city of Provence. Enjoy the goings in the lanes, the colourfulness and the fragrant herbs.

From St. Rémy you cycle across the Alpilles to Salon-de-Provence. If you want to cycle more you should choose the longer stage via Les Baux and Mausanne. Nostradamus lived here in the 16th century.

What about a stroll through Salon-de-Provence? You should visit the fortress “Chateau de l´Emperi” or the collegiate church. Your cycle tour leads you via Pélissane, Lambesc and Eguilles back to Aix-en-Provence.

Your tour is completed after breakfast.

The route

Medium - The routes are leading you through hilly terrain. You should be already experienced in cycling. Most of the time you are cycling on small roads and asphalted side roads, in parts you cycle on the bike paths “Luberon á Velo”.

Get an altitude map before booking
We would recommend this tour IF you are more than a fair-weather cyclist; are prepared for steep climbs and gravel roads; and bring lots of water. The tour is at least a 3*. Day 1: climbed 680m, Day 2: 660m, Days 5, 6: 400m each. Scenery, towns are beautiful but getting there is hard work. Restaurants, shops close from noon to 2 pm; stock up on food and WATER before then. Restaurant lists are out of date; ask hotel staff instead. Study the next day’s route beforehand, some detours are possible.

Die Charme der Provence per Rad entdecken
Sehr gute Einführung vor Ort durch Bernhard, ausführliche Reiseunterlagen mit zusätzlichen Vorschlägen und Hintergrundinformationen, GPS Streckendaten führten uns sicher ans Ziel, die Aufkleber auf der Strecke waren zusätzlich hilfreich. Die Route ist sehr abwechslungsreich und führte durch viele charmante Dörfer. Die Restaurantempfehlungen waren sehr gut.
