OUR TOP-RATED TOUR REVIEWS
(They are listed under Memoires de Provence, our B&B trading name)
We know that you have a choice when selecting your bike tour. Which is why we have put a lot of effort, and all of our cycling experience, into every aspect of the service that we offer. Following are the main reasons that we think put us a wheel length ahead of the competition:
BIKE THE REAL PROVENCE: Our aim is to give you the self guided bike holiday that you want along with a real slice of Provence. Provence and the Luberon are our home - we live here and cycle these roads all year long. We know where to find the best, whatever it is that you are looking for:
- quiet picturesque back roads or empty bike tracks,
- flat routes, rolling hills or nasty 14% climbs,
- a village cafe, a great pizza or an authentic 3-course Provencal meal,
- famous hill villages or their less busy neighbours,
- main attractions or the quieter undiscovered gems,
- prestigious wine chateaux or smaller unpretentious local vineyards.
FLEXIBILTY: Do all the cycling and sightseeing you want to do, when you want to, with our easy to use,
flexible pre-programmed GPS systems. We have rides loaded for all abilities and enough to keep the keenest biker busy. And, if your
partner wants to do less cycling and sit by the pool or visit a sight, then that works too.
You can also now rent an electric assistance bike (25 € extra charge per night - Please enquire at the time of booking), so if one or both of you are not such strong riders it can make for an easier time.
RELAX & ENJOY YOURSELF: You'll be able to combine biking & relaxation and hopefully really enjoy your stay in Provence. There's no having to pack & unpack your bags & move to a different hotel each day and no time consuming logistics. You'll be more than comfortable during your stay in our renovated 17th Century Provencal farmhouse with its large pool, gardens and vineyards.

PERSONAL SCALE: We don't run mass tours, you're not just a number! Our groups are on a manageable personal scale, with never more than 9 to a group. We prefer not to run a minumum group size, so you can have the peace of mind that we will not cancel your tour at the last minute due to low numbers.
GREAT EQUIPMENT: We use top quality equipment. Our hybrid bikes will get the best from your efforts, keeping you comfortable in the saddle, whilst our GPS systems will guide you effortlessly around the ride and sights that you have chosen. And for peace of mind if you were ever to have a problem back-up transport is just a call away.
GREAT VALUE: we aim to offer honestly priced, value for money tours. If you compare what we offer (the accommodation, No of nights, bikes, location, meals etc), and how we offer it (flexible GPS systems, ride directory, back up), you should find that we stand up very well to other tours. We can do this because we don't have to pay middlemen for hotels, food & bikes etc, these savings are passed onto you to make great prices.
