France: Provence

Medieval Villages of Provence

  • A lavender-scented patchwork of sun drenched vineyards, olive groves and apple orchards
  • Medieval perched villages: Gordes and Bonnieux, with spectacular views across the Luberon
  • Quiet country lanes and cycle paths; beautiful Provencal countryside and sleepy hamlets
  • Great lunch options; chateaux and wine estates all too happy to provide tastings
  • A variety of hotels, each with a swimming pool
  • Based on our popular 6 night, Hilltop Villages of Provence Cycling

On this seven night holiday you'll discover the beauty of Provence - a region where refinement and tradition blend beautifully, and whose natural light and landscapes have served as inspiration to the likes of Van Gogh, Cezanne, Picasso and Dumas, not to mention Peter Mayle! You'll look out over a patchwork blanket of fields, olive groves, vineyards and, in the south east, apple orchards which cover the floor between the mountains on either side. While the vineyards here may not be as well-known as those of the Rhone, Burgundy and Bordeaux, some superb wines are produced here - so be sure to stop off for a tasting or two.

Your itinerary has been designed to give you a taste of the picturesque perched villages which pepper Provence's breathtaking, lavender-scented Luberon area. The hilly landscape of the region means the cycling can be challenging at times but for each tough climb you'll be rewarded with a spectacular view. Starting in the medieval town of Pernes-les-Fontaines, famous for its numerous ancient stone fountains and lavoirs, you'll enjoy far-reaching views over the Luberon as you make your way to the ochre-red village of Roussillon passing vineyards, chateaux and castles on the way. You then head out along the Ochre Trail and along country lanes to pass through some of the most beautiful villages in Provence - each one offering stirring images along with a history which, in some places, stretches back over a thousand years - before your final stretch takes in sweeping apple orchards, typical French villages, quaint cafes and the fascinating network of caves at Grotte de Thouzon.

We've hand-picked a lovely selection of hotels for your holiday. The Hotel l'Hermitage in Pernes-les-Fontaines is set in 2 hectares of grounds with a saltwater swimming pool and its own orangery; the Hotel les Sables d'Ocre in Roussillon sits amidst landscaped lawns with a relaxing pool area.

Reviews

Everyone who goes on a Headwater holiday will be emailed a link to our post-holiday questionnaire where they can give us an honest assessment of all aspects of their holiday - everything from how quickly we answer the phone to how clean the hotels were - plus an overall rating and comments about their holiday.

Any feedback collected is posted to our website, so that people can make an informed decision based on past experiences before heading off on holiday. We don’t edit the reviews, the only thing we do is proofread them and alter any typos, where necessary, to ensure they are easy to read for everyone. All reviews will be published (except in certain extreme circumstances), and a member of the Headwater team will respond to any constructive criticisms/comments under the reviews, at their discretion. So, for the real tales, twists and turns of our holidays, look no further than the reviews from our previous travellers.


Mrs Leach, 08/10/2019

We were very well looked after on our first self guided cycling trip with Headwater. There were some small issues with train travel bookings and with our bikes but the local rep Joey was fantastic, contactable any time and extremely helpful. We would definitely go back. Provence was beautiful, and the route interesting. The hills particularly into the villages are pretty steep and it was striking how many folk were using e-bikes which we previously thought of as “cheating” but would definitely consider in the future to make more beautiful hilltop towns more easily accessible. A great holiday

.


Mrs Spafford Jones, 02/10/2019

My husband survived ( just) on his flawed e-bike while I on my normal bike had to go really slowly, lots of stopping and starting because of the ap which caused me considerable distress as it was on my husband's hearing-aids so I had no idea what was going on. Give me a good old OS map any day! Other than that we had a lovely time.


Ms Moxon, 15/08/2019

A wonderful all round experience. Highly recommended


Mrs Rawle, 11/08/2019

An excellent, relaxed holiday. Avignon was easy and interesting to explore on foot from the first hotel. The cycling was occasionally challenging, but never exceeded the "2+" rating, Drivers were always considerate towards cyclists. Accommodation, swimming pools and food were good all round and well-earned! The hoteliers were very helpful and most of the dining was al fresco. English was widely spoken, and even where it was not, locals were willing to communicate.
