BIKES & EQUIPMENT AT THE VILLA.

We use quality hybrid bikes.
We use quality hybrid bikes.

On the afternoon of arrival you'll be fitted for your bike, one of our quality, aluminium Trek hybrid bikes. We use hybrids as they have the slightly more upright riding position of a mountain bike, thus making them more comfortable to ride than a road bike. This riding position, combined with tyres that are thicker than those on a road bike, gives you increased stability & safety on the road.

The bike's components are Shimano - easy to use, tough and reliable! Plus having 27 gears available will make any hills a little easier! All of the above mean you should be comfortable on your bike whilst getting the most from your efforts!

We also rent electric bikes.

Electric assistance bikes are also available for hire. Electric bikes are great for giving less able bikers, or less enthusiastic ones, an authentic taste of the beautiful Luberon by bike. By selecting the amount of assistance you use, you are able to manage the level of effort you give. The bikes are easy to ride, highly autonomous with a minimum range of 60kms to a max of 100kms. With all the equipment you could need, and with one of our new Garmin GPS units you are set for an easy carefree tour.
Electric bikes can be hired at an additional 28 euros per night, if interested please mention it at the time of booking.

Road bikes or Tandems are also now available for hire for an additional 28 euros per night - please contact us for details.

SOME TRIPADVISOR REVIEWS FOR OUR VILLA BASED PROVENCE BIKE TRIPS:

"The bikes are very well set up and in excellent condition and the Garmin GPS units with the rides preset are an absolute god send:!!"
Provence Cycling Holidays - France - Stefania & Paul - NZ - Aug 2019 - 5* Guestbook review.
"The bikes are all first class and faultlessly maintained. Neil and Nat provide routes pre-loaded on Garmin GPS, which makes it so easy to follow without effort or stress, so you can just enjoy the rides. There is a great variety of excellent routes to choose from with lots of information about difficulty, what to see, and where to stop for a meal or just for a drink.
After the first day my wife decided she would like to try an e-bike, and Neil came over to deliver one the same day, at a very reasonable rental cost."
Provence Cycling Holidays - France - David & Gill - UK - July 2019 - 5* Guestbook review.
"The bikes and the GPS's showing the best routes to amazing villages with least effort all just perfect."
Provence Cycling Holidays - France - Lorna & Sam - UK - May 2019 - 5* Guestbook review.
"The bikes are great, but the whole GPS idea and clearly hours and hours of research that has gone into it is just brilliant, making for such an easy and such a lovely day.
Planning our next ride as I type - just follow the GPS pink line and you will be fine!"
Provence Cycling Holidays - France - Tim - Can - Sept 18 - 5* Guestbook review.
"Our days were spent cycling on one of the many routes programmed on the GPS and Neil would point out the restaurants and highlight sights we should not miss. The bikes were in tip-top condition and it was so helpful that they provided helmets."
Provence Cycling Holidays - France - Caroline & family - Singapore - July 18 - 5* Guestbook review.
"The routes Neil provides take you to the loveliest villages where you can spend a couple of hours enjoying a terrific lunch of Provençal wine and food.
And for you mature but steadfast bikers I cannot recommend ebikes too enthusiastically. Hilltop villages - no problem."
Provence Cycling Holidays - France - Steven - US - Jan 18 - 5* Guestbook review.
"My wife and I took our own bikes but my parents used Neil’s. The reviews from both my parents were very good and if they did not already have their own at home I suspect they would have been investing."
