Wonderful !Scenery, history and the friendships made.
"My husband and I just spent an absolutely wonderful week staying with Neil and Nat in their beautiful family home and guest house.
The rides Neil arranged for us were superb, taking us to ancient, historic villages where we could explore, eat and see the sights.
Neil has an immense knowledge of the area and has planned with meticulous attention varying rides that begin and finish at the farmhouse. The Garmin units enabled us to find our way home each time.
Our hosts were very friendly, down to earth and cooked the most amazing meals for us on 2 occasions whilst breakfast every morning was outstanding.
Thank you Neil and Nat, we truly had the time of our lives!"
Bike Vacation in Provence, France. - Susan & Darryl - AUS - Oct 23 - 5* Tripadvisor review.
Highly Recommended!.
"We just returned from our six night stay and it was such a memorable experience. Neil and Nat (owners) made us feel welcome and suggested 5 cycling routes which we took over the duration of our visit. The routes were immaculately planned with incredible detail and every morning Neil or Nat would review the route and offer tips and suggestions on attractions, restaurants and other areas of interest.
The surrounding countryside is beautiful, there are routes for all cycling levels and each route is preprogrammed into a GPS so all you need to do is enjoy the ride. They know the Luberon inside and out and their expertise ensured we were able to make the most of our visit to the area.
And the two nights they provided dinners (which were fabulous) gave us an opportunity to socialize with our fellow guests which was an added bonus.
This was definitely the experience of a lifetime."

Best Provence Bike Tour Experience!
"Thank you Neil, Nay, Lucy and Jamie for a fabulous week! From bikes, to accommodation, to company and advice, absolutely superb!
If cycling Provence, this is where you should stay! You have an idea? Could not settle on the 30+ cycling tours available - ask and you will have it by the next day!
Fabulous! "

Fantastic way to see this lovely pocket of Provence
"This is such a great way to holiday, Neil and Nat were absolute superb hosts. Their local knowledge and advice for the many different daily options was first class.
We have done bike holidays before but not with a ‘home’ base, soooo easy and relaxing.
Loved the gorgeous French villages, the history, the food and the support of these great hosts.
Highly recommend!"

Neil & Nat won’t steer you wrong! Pun intended :)
"Cycling through the lavender fields of Provence has long been on my bucket list. We’ve checked it off now AND had a marvelous holiday to boot!
Owners Neil & Natalene went to great lengths to ensure our rides were successful. Their equipment was top notch. Neil has meticulously planned out bike routes which are safe, enjoyable, and took us to all the charming surrounding villages while staying off busy roads and minimizing mileage and uphill climbs. Each route had a detailed guide of what to see as well as recommendations for charming little cafés to stop in for refreshment.
This is truly a biking holiday. Food, activity, sight seeing, and cooling off in the pool are the orders for the day. This isn’t your typical cram-all-the-sights-into-a-day European vacation. We were very relaxed exploring charming agricultural Provence over the course of the week.
Breakfasts (croissants, fruit, boiled eggs, yogurt, granola, cheese, coffee, OJ) were lovely each morning! The two evening meals prepared were also delicious! We especially enjoyed the camaraderie of the other guests in the B&B too.
Would highly recommend!
Thanks Neil & Nat for our wonderful time! "

Excellent cycling outfitter!
"Neil's love of cycling and Provence shines through in everything he does here. He intuitively sized up our group of six to match route recommendations to our interests and abilities, and offered options to tailor rides accordingly. He put a lot of time and attention into briefing us each morning so that we'd know what to expect, and his restaurant and site-seeing recommendations were spot-on.
The GPS navigation and tip sheets were perfect. We really enjoyed our time with Nat and the kids too and felt very welcomed into their home. So many cool towns -- so many amazing meals -- and great memories of Provence.
Thanks for a great stay!"

Hands down, Neil and Nat are the best!!!
"This was one of the most amazing experiences, and I highly recommend Neil and Nat and their cycling B&B to anyone interested in an extremely well organized yet independent cycling holiday in Provence.
Their business model fit perfectly to our needs. Neil has at his finger tips an unlimited number of cycling routes throughout the Luberon Valley, each rated by distance and level of difficulty, with accompanying information on things to see and do and places to eat along which ever way you choose to go. He'll even customize the routes on the spot to accommodate unexpected weather or road conditions or preferences. Yet, it's fully independent.
He gives you a perfectly loaded Garmin for your bike with accompanying laminated cue sheets, and off you and your friends go for the day!
Every morning starts with a planning meeting around a beautiful breakfast on his veranda and two of the days end with a wonderful homecooked family-style meal by Neil and Nat. They day you arrive, you spend several hours over a few bottles of wine just getting a full orientation on how the system works and what to expect.
We've toured by cycle before in other European countries and Neil and Nat's model worked the best for us hands down!
I can't recommend them enough!"

Wonderful time cycling in Provence!
"Had a wonderful time. Very knowledgable about the area and great set up to ensure you get a good ride that fits your abilities and interests (morning briefings, pre programmed GPS on the bikes, and portable maps with description of the day's ride with recommendations for places to eat and sites to take in).
Friendly and really care about helping you have a great experience."

"We're on the way home now from a fabulous week cycling in Provence, enjoying the exceptional hospitality of Neil and Natalene and making friends with the other guests in the B&B from Canada and the USA.
The accommodation is homely, we had an ensuite double, and the hearty breakfasts provide a great start to the day. On two evenings Neil serves up a fantastic three course meal and drinks. On the other evenings they recommended some of the many local restaurants all only a 10 minute walk away in the village. Our clear favourite was La Table Gourmande which was just superb in both its food and service.
The main event each day was the cycle ride. The bikes are meticulously maintained and Neil has curated dozens of routes in 6 different zones with varying degrees of difficulty. They are all stored on a Garmin device which is easy to use and guides you throughout the day so you just choose what is best for you. He will customise other routes as required to provide suitable options for all. In addition he briefs you in detail at breakfast every day on the sights to look out for and, perhaps as importantly, the best lunch stops in each town.
The ample pool provided a welcome cool down on our return every afternoon. The free wifi enables you to sort out any photos you have taken of the various villages and the incredible scenery. During our five days we covered 279km with an elevation gain of 2420m. I used the the Trek hybrid included and my wife hired an ebike so choose what is best for you. We cycle a lot at home in Spain, but this our first cycling holiday as such.
Highly recommended!"

A week in Provence!!
"Bespoke cycling for all levels, exceptionally well maintained modern bikes and the opportunity to experience the countryside riding through lavender fields and vineyards. Neil and Nat offer a unique cycling holiday for everyone!
Every aspect of this experience is a treat. For this return visit we chose to stay in the 17th Century Farmhouse so we had the luxury of the smorgasbord breakfast prepared by Neil, making new friends and sharing our daily experiences cycling the countryside. Two three course sensational dinners are included during the 6 night stay by Chef Neil. It’s also great to stay in the one place and cycle out to different hilltop villages each day.
Over the years Neil and Nat have continued to evolve the cycling experience. Carefully mapped Garmin GPS routes (this is where you will really appreciate the experience) guiding you through vineyards, poppy and lavender fields set this cycling holiday apart from the rest. Daily briefings including “watch outs, best places to stop, where to explore and eat” where greatly appreciated. All supported by well detailed and mapped trip notes. All the planning and thinking is done for you. Even dinner recommendations and bookings are made for you.
Having the swimming pool available for pre and post ride swims is fabulous!
An extensive range of bikes are on offer to suit beginners through to very experienced cyclists which means this trip can be enjoyed by all members of the family. We chose e-bikes this trip so we could ride further and easily enjoy the countryside.
If self-catering is more your style then their villa in a village nearby is a wonderful option. The bikes and daily cycle briefings still accompany this option. We had the opportunity of visiting the villa and the pool during this stay - its gorgeous and we would definitely consider this option when we return.
We have been travelling for 6 weeks in France and this holiday has been the highlight of our trip so far."

An absolute must do in Provence!
"From the outset Neil & Nat were an absolute pleasure & the most hospitable hosts. Their keen desire to ensure we had a great time & select rides most suited to us made our trip even more enjoyable.
Having the GPS on our bikes made it easy to find our way around the stunning countryside. After a hearty breakfast each morning we rode through fields of lavender, poppies, strawberries, corn, wheat, & other farmlands on bike tracks & small roads to reach the most beautiful villages you could imagine. After each days ride we were rewarded by a swim in the crystal clear pool. Each day was a new version of heaven!
We enjoyed Neil’s fabulous meals & meeting his lovely family. Other nights we loved eating at local restaurants Neil & Nat recommended & booked.
We can’t wait to return to see Neil & Nat & experience more of their ride selections."

The Best Cycling Holiday in Provence!!
"I went on this cycling trip alone and Neil and Natalene were so personable, helpful and accommodating.
The attention to detail pertaining to the daily rides noting weather conditions (the mistral @ 65K) and making suggestions was perfect.
The equipment - Trek hybrid bikes, locks, helmets, toolkit and preloaded GPS made the trip superb.
Neil attends to the bicycles to ensure they are at maximum functioning.
The accommodations are beautiful, the homemade meals delicious and breakfasts superb. They provide an honesty fridge with goodies and beverages was a nice addition.
The detailed laminated cards for each daily ride were perfect to fit into a cycling jersey and provided information on sites and eating options to visit.
I would highly recommend this cycling holiday for anyone who wants to experience Provence this way. Lots of climbing but certainly manageable. The site seeing was breath-taking and definitely worth the climbs.
The best cycling experience in Provence!!!!"

The Best
"Fantastic week, even in less than ideal weather. Nat and Neil are the perfect hosts, the house is beautiful and in a quiet countryside area - even though Coustellet, with a good choice of restaurants, is only a ten minute walk away.
The bike trips to beautiful villages are well organized and Neil went over the daily details every morning while we were enjoying a delicious breakfast. Excellent and very well maintained bikes.
Two very relaxing evenings “at home” enjoying some amazing home cooked meals. Comfortable beds. Getting your laundry done daily was a big luxury! The lavender was not blooming yet, but the poppy fields were spectacular.
Would love to do this again."

Best cycling vacation I have ever had.
"Fantastic cycling vacation;
The hosts Nat and Neil are so welcoming that by the end of our tour we felt like family. Neil’s bikes are in perfect condition and his routes are well thought out and safe and absolutely stunning. The attention to detail meant that everything went smoothly.
My room was lovely and breakfast and the family dinner meals were terrific. I can’t recommend this enough.
My fourth cycling vacation in France and absolutely the best."

Perfectbicycle stay in Provence!
"We had a really enjoyable stay at Neil & Nat’s B&B. They were the perfect hosts – friendly, professional and knowledgeable.
The property is lovely, breakfast was a real treat and the 2 dinners we had with their family were delicious and warmly casual.
The bicycle rides were great. They have a deep knowledge of the whole area and the most suitable bicycle routes. The bikes were good quality & well maintained. Just tell Neil what sort of rides you want & follow his recommendations and you’ll be fine. The Garmin routes were easy to follow and it all works well. We followed his suggestions for where to eat and they were spot on.
We got along very well with the other 3 guests and in the end cycled and went out for dinners together the whole week.
Highly recommended!"
