This is Provence at its most picturesque! The villages are graded as among the prettiest of France and they are surrounded by some of France's most picturesque countryside. Colorful villages are outlined by surrounding lavender fields and vineyards, and in some areas, the landscape is contrasted by the pure white of the limestone cliffs.

Day 3 (continued), 4 & 5:

The Luberon and its colorful Provencal villages. Ride through the Luberon natural regional park. Discover the colorful Roussillon village where two millenniums ago, the Romans used its ochre earth for producing pottery glazes. Nowadays, the same colorful earth is still used to color the region renovated houses. Numerous unforgettable villages like Bonnieux, Lacoste, Menerbes, Gordes, Goult... and a surprising abbey surrounded by lavender fields.

Day 6 :

Ride in the Mont Ventoux region. It is the most prominent geographical feature in the Provence thanks to its height and its isolation. But it is also one of the greatest climb in the history of the tour de France race.
