Price From: A$3,634

Starting at Avignon with a visit to the walled city and the 2nd Papal Palace, yep, there are two which is a whole other story. We begin our adventure north with the option to ascend the “Monster of Provence” The lunar-like peek of Mt Ventoux. These first few days may as well be called the Lavender Days as we will be riding through little dry stone building from village to village through Lavender fields, vineyards and fruit trees. No matter what movie you have seen depicting the small roads around Provence, we are smack bang in the middle. Usually hot, sometimes windy with the famous Mistral Winds from the west but always remembered as a favorite part of any journey. We ten venture south for what is to be a show stopper with the most famous blue water Mediterranean swimming off rock pools. This is where you look at photos that on your computer and wish you were there. We pick out the hot spots along the coast, although spectacular, there will be busy areas, when we are looking for a more quiet experience we will duck up the small hills with a higher vantage point.
