Provence is singular in its fragrant beauty and old-world charm. Today is the first day you get to discover it all! We'll meet you at the TGV train station in Aix-En-Provence and take you to our lunch spot: Le Jardin de Celina, a restaurant in the middle of the countryside where the menu is elaborate but the flavors are fresh and simple. After guide introductions, a bike fitting and route talk, as well as a bike safety review, it's off on your first ride of the week! You will pass open fields along quiet roads on your way on to the beautiful town Moustiers-Sainte-Marie, a veritable favorite of the renowned Provençal poet, Frédéric Mistral. This sleepy town perched on the sheer mountain drop is considered to be one of France's most beautiful villages and a town full of legends. A large golden star hanging between two mountains towering the city is sure to catch your eye and your guides will be happy to share the myths and legends as well as the history of this location with you. Your hotel this evening is La Bastide de Moustiers, a hotel owned by one of the most renowned French chefs in the world, Alain Ducasse. Dinner tonight is in his restaurant, prepared by chef Thomas Chambraud, according to the precepts of Provençal traditions and ingredients.

Time here slows down for you to enjoy the things that matter most on a relaxing vacation. Once on the bikes, you'll set out for the Gorges du Verdon, the "Grand Canyon of Europe," along the Route des Crêtes. The climb starts gently once leaving town and the views only get more and more stunning the deeper in you go. Take in the huge crevices and views above a 2,300 foot drop to the rushing turquoise Verdon river below. Bird watchers will also delight at the Griffon vultures and other wildlife that call the canyon their home. This afternoon is yours to explore town as you meander the cobbled streets, chapels, and an incredible sunset between the two rock ledges of Moustiers-Sainte-Marie.

Here, you are free to find your perfect lunch spot and explore town. The route is just as gorgeous after lunch as you descend to the shimmering coast of the Gulf of Saint Tropez. Our destination, Lou Pinet, is a luxurious hotel that portrays the flair of Saint Tropez with its tasteful decoration and design. There will be time to relax and unwind at the pool and spa before we regroup for the evening activity. Tonight, get ready for a truly Provençal evening to remember.

Today is an ode to epic bike rides, with the central theme being the mountains and the coast of the French Riviera. You'll start your day with a shuttle that will drop you off in Grimaud. Grimaud is the jewel of the mountains, a quintessentially beautiful Provençal town with a very distinct character. The ride begins here then heads through a luscious forest of the Maures Massif before continuing through the sleepy village of Collobrières. You'll then take on the local favorite, the Col de Babaou, which offers a challenging ride that is rewarded with stunning views. On the other side of the climb is a town named after the flowers that speckle the hills, Bormes-les-Mimosas. We'll stop for a well-earned lunch and exploration of the medieval center of the town. After lunch, you'll head back in the mountains briefly to reach the best location for prime coastal views. Here you'll climb the Route des Crêtes with the most splendid views of the gulf. Once down to the coast you'll be in the quaint coastal town, Rayol-Canadel-Sur-Mer. This is where "Today's ride" concludes and a shuttle awaits. For those who wish to continue riding, the avid option will take you all the way to the hotel, partly on a fast, coastal bike path and partly on other coastal roads. Tonight is the night that you will truly experience Saint Tropez for yourself. This small fisherman town that became a symbol of elegance and glamour was made famous by the French actress, Brigitte Bardot, and ever since it has been a magnet for yachts, parties, and grandiose vacations of a lifetime. Get ready to explore its streets, shop for unique items, people watch, sit by the port with a glass of rosé in hand, or just let the time slowly flow before exploring dinner options on your own in town.

You'll start your day with a ride on the Ramatuelle peninsula and stop in its namesake town. This morning it'll be market day in Ramatuelle and a true Provençal vacation is not complete until you've had the chance to experience one of these famous outdoor markets and shop like a local! You'll meet our local friend, Sonia, who will share her perfect morning with us on a market walking tour. Once ready, you'll return to your ride. You'll pedal the hilly but short climbs of the peninsula, catching the best views of the gulf on every hilltop. Soon, you'll arrive at the coast of Cavailaire-sur-Mer, where you'll swap land for water. A catamaran will be waiting for us at the port for a thrilling afternoon of sailing, barbecuing, and cruising in the shimmering turquoise waters of the Gulf of Saint Tropez. This evening we'll gather once more as a group, with old and newfound friends, and raise a glass to a week of wonderful adventures.

La Bastide de Moustiers

Moustiers-Sainte-Marie, France

Luxury Accommodation | In the quiet fragrant countryside surrounding Moustiers-Sainte-Marie and boasting traditional Provencal character, La Bastide de Moustiers is a perfect place to spend a few days of exploring. A farmhouse owned by one of France's most celebrated three-star Michelin chefs, Alain Ducasse, is now turned into a luxury hotel right at the foothills of the Gorges du Verdon. From the ancient stone and lime paint, to every vase and piece of furniture, the details at La Bastide de Moustiers are authentic and carefully sourced. Local craftsmen have made the carpets, the sconces, glass, and other architectural elements including the stunning floor tiles. Every room in the restaurant is decorated with Alain Ducasse’s own treasures including artwork, rare ceramics, and lacquered woods. Each guest room also has its own identity, furnished with pieces often personally purchased by Ducasse.

Hotel Lou Pinet

Saint-Tropez, France

Luxury Accommodation | Bewitched by the place, the Pariente family took over the Hotel Lou Pinet in 2017, completely transforming it with the ultimate dream team. Charles Zana and François Vieillecroze remodeled the architecture, landscaper Jean Mus took to the gardens, and Riccardo Giraudi assumed the restaurant. In love with the south in general and the French Riviera in particular, the team members have joined forces to reinvent the Hotel Lou Pinet as they would a private home where friends gather for a different take on Saint-Tropez. The real one.

Arriving

We suggest that you arrive at least one day prior to the start of your Provence Luxury bike tour, which will enable you to adjust to the time zone and minimize the risk of missing the trip start due to flight-related delays. We recommend that you fly into Paris (CDG). From Paris, take a TGV train to Aix-en-Provence, either from the TGV station at Charles de Gaulle Airport or from the Gare de Lyon in Paris. Please consult www.voyages-sncf.com to book your tickets.

Alternatively, you may fly into Marseilles (MRS) or Nice (NCE) and take a train to Aix-en-Provence. There are direct trains to Aix-en-Provence from Marseille St. Charles and Nice Ville train stations. The Aix-en-Provence TGV station is approximately 10 miles from the center of Aix-en-Provence downtown and if you are spending the night in Aix-en-Provence you will need to taxi to the train station for the start of your trip; the taxi costs approximately 60 euro. Train schedules are available and tickets can be booked directly online at www.SNCF.com or by using our recommended travel agent services. (Please note the train schedule changes frequently; consult the SNCF site for the most up-to-date schedule.)

Your Trek Travel guides will meet you at the Aix-en-Provence TGV train station, 13290 Aix-en-Provence, France, at 11:00 AM on the first day of the trip. After a one hour shuttle by private coach, your luxury Provençal vacation begins! Enjoy lunch as your guides explain how the trip will unfold, and expertly fit you to your Trek bike. Once everyone’s bike is ready, you’ll be off to explore the quiet roads of Provence.

If you will be late for the pick-up or are going to miss it altogether, please inform your guides. You will receive an email a week before the trip starts with their names and contact details. If you cannot reach them, please call our first hotel, La Bastide de Moustiers (+33 4 92 70 47 47), and leave a message with your expected arrival time and contact details. You may take a taxi to the first night’s hotel for approximately 300 euros.

Leaving

You will say farewell to your guides at 11:00 AM at Lou Pinet hotel. After saying goodbye to your guides, you will take a private coach from the trip end to the Aix-en-Provence TGV (approximately 90-minute shuttle). Here you can take a train to Paris or any other destination of your choice. Please do not book any train before 14:00 PM.

All air passengers returning to the United States, including U.S. Citizens and fully vaccinated people, are required to have a negative COVID-19 test result no more than 72 hours before travel (unless you have documentation of recovery from COVID-19 in the past three months before boarding your flight). We advise you to book your return tickets with this in mind, giving yourself a clearance of two days after the trip ends. We recommend spending a day in one of the major urban centers following your trip (Paris, Avignon, or Marseille) where you can yield test results within 24-48 hours. Trek Travel will provide you with the necessary information 30 days prior to your trip.

Planning For Your Trip

Packing and Weather

April, May, and October in Provence usually bring clear, warm, and pleasant days with cool evenings. Temperatures during these months range between 60s to high 70s, but don’t be surprised if the Provencal sun raises temperatures to mid 80s. The mornings often start off cooler. Rain is always a possibility, so be prepared with the proper rain gear in order to best enjoy your cycling vacation. June and the beginning of September can be hot, with temperatures that sometimes get up in the 90s but it does cool off in the evenings and has less chance of rain. Packing List

Before and After Your Trip

before

Before: Aix-en-Provence, France

Once the capital of 15th century France, today it's a canvas of colorful festivals, art, Provençal markets, water springs, and walks in the city center bursting with Baroque splendor. Aix-en-Provence marvellously exemplifies the Provençal art of living so admired by the rest of the world. With boulevards shaded by majestic sycamores, streets bordered by beautiful private residences, discreet squares ornamented with beautiful fountains and garnished with welcoming sidewalk cafes, Aix seduces those who take the time to linger here. We recommend the following accommodations for your pre-trip hotel:

after

After: Marseille, France

Marseille was founded in 600BC by Greek settlers and today it has evolved in a melting pot of cultures and diverse atmosphere. The most ancient city in France combines the cosmopolitan ambiance of a big city and the quaint character of a fishing village; it’s a great place to immerse yourself in something a little different. You’ll find casual couscous and fish restaurants by the Old Port, as well as refined gastronomic experiences. Marseille isn’t so much about monumental sights as it is about simple, more cultural things: outdoor terraces, street art, makeshift apéro bars, and tiny ports. We recommend the following accommodations for your post-trip hotel:
