SOME TRIPADVISOR REVIEWS FOR OUR VILLA BASED PROVENCE BIKE TRIPS:

"Upon arriving our expectations were exceeded. The villa is beautiful inside and totally relaxing outside and being able to use the pool after our rides "some in 36°C temp's was excellent.
The information provided in the "Villa Ride Directory" is comprehensive and enjoyable to read at the end of each day to plan our next ride. Each day, Neil you came to explain in even greater detail the sites to see and the quirkes of each individual ride and villages.
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:!!
We enjoyed the variety of the rides with a mixture of flat riding and hills, but most importantly we loved the scenery & small towns that you sent us through.
I certainly will be recommending the "Provence Cycling Holidays" to anyone who may be interested in coming here to France to cycle & enjoy the memorable experiences that we have had."
Provence Cycling Holidays - France - Stefania & Paul - NZ - Aug 2019 - 5* Guestbook review.
"Our first time & hopefully not our last! We have so thoroughly enjoyed staying at your gorgeous Les Taillades Villa.
Everything we hoped for! I would recommend this experience to anyone who enjoys 5* comfort combined with awesome cycling in the Luberon.
We were so very lucky to experience this, thank you so much for running this for tourists. All the very best!"
Provence Cycling Holidays - France - Christina & Mike - NZ - June 2019 - 5* Guestbook review.
"Neil and Nat’s villa in Tailades was a wonderful choice for our adult family of 5 to meet up in Europe and holiday together. Choosing from the 30 odd self ride routes Neil has designed ensured we always rode on quiet picturesque country lanes and paths, while Nat would book us in for a fabulous lunch at a hilltop village that we never would have discovered ourselves. After not too strenuous exercise, we enjoyed some lazy time by the pool back at the villa while cooking a bbq for dinner. The villa itself was by far the best accommodation we had whilst in Europe and we all rated the experience 10/10 (and only one of us is a regular cyclist)!" Provence Cycling Holidays - France - Leigh & family - Aus - Sept 18 - 5* Guestbook review.
Thumbs up from us!
A visit to Provence was always on the "Bucket List" only enhanced by the desire to do some biking to see the best the area had to offer.
Provence Cycling Holidays was a great find!!
We opted for the Villa offering and were not disappointed, it was beautifully presented and catered for our needs.
The bikes were 1st Class and as was all the biking info, GPS and guides.
A very well put together package.
Provence Cycling Holidays - France - Robert – NZ - Oct 17 - 5* Guestbook review.
Really a first class service!
We would without hesitation return as we feel there is still much to explore on our bikes and Neil and Nat are so welcoming. The Villa is fantastic for those wanting a little more independence and privacy in comparison to the B&B and perfect for a family or a group of friends. Really a first class service. Despite being away from the B&B we still felt we were just a well looked after as if we were staying there. The only thing we missed was Neil’s cooking. Hopefully when we return our daughter will be able to go in a bike trailer so she can join the fun too.

Anyone who's looking for a nice French biking experience!
"Working out of a home base everyday on our self-guided and self-paced tours was the way to go. We could bike as little or as much as we wanted, leaving enough time for sightseeing, shopping and of course eating!!! The time Neil put into researching and developing the courses one has to choose from for each days ride, made everyone of them a winner.
Anyone looking for a nice French biking experience . . . I would highly recommend the way we did it. "
Provence Cycling Holidays - France - Mary Jean & Rick - US - Oct 17 - 5* B&B Tripadvisor review.
"Neil has created a number of rides that permit a fabulous sampling of what Provence has to offer - villages, sites to visit, restaurants. To stay in one place and have so many choices of rides was amazing."
Provence Cycling Holidays - France - Janet & Michael - Can - 5* B&B Tripadvisor review.
Extraordinary experience.
"Our experience with Neil and Nat's property and guest experience was extraordinary. There is no better way to sightsee a beautiful area than on a bicycle seat, and it's nice when all the routes and planning are so well laid out and easy to negotiate with GPS units.
In addition to the bicycle experiences, Neil's and Nat's advice, support, and facilities were remarkable."
Provence Cycling Holidays - France - Lois & Hugh - US - 5* B&B Tripadvisor review.
Highly recommended!
"The bikes were first rate hybrids and Neil has assembled an outstanding list of rides that make extensive use of little traveled roads. Neil too is fantastic at customizing rides that take your preferences into account and his GPS system is an essentially fail proof way to complete each of the circuits without fear of getting lost."
Provence Cycling Holidays - France - Kellie & Neil - UK - July 15 - 5* B&B Tripadvisor review.
An ideal way of bicycle touring!
"It's also very comforting to know that a friend with a car is just a phone call away should you need help. It's an ideal way of bicycle touring because you can ride at your own pace and schedule, or just take a day off to be a regular tourist. "
Provence Cycling Holidays - France - Courtney - US - Sept 12 - 5* B&B Tripadvisor review.
"The best part was that each bike was equipped with its own GPS allowing us true custom tour routes."
