Our Bike Tours and COVID-19: 13th July '21 Update.

Covid-19 and booking your bike tour with confidence..

During these complicated times it’s understandable that people are reluctant to organise overseas travel. So, in order to give you flexibility & peace of mind, we have come up with our no risk reservation policy, which allows you to book a future 2021 / 2022 tour with us now, and with confidence.

  1. You can book now & pay later.

  2. Payment is due just 30 days prior to your tour date.

  3. Then, if you cannot travel, or do not feel comfortable travelling, on your planned dates due to Covid-19 and need to cancel, you can rest assured that we will refund any payments – no arguments!

We hope you find the above conditions reasonable; it must be said not many other tours are offering such good terms!

So, we will be restarting our tours after the summer heat, that’s from the 29th August 2021, plus of course our 2022 dates are now available.

Hope to see you soon...

The situation in France.

Locally, where we are in the Luberon valley, Provence, we continue to fare considerably better than the national average, no doubt due to the size of our villages and our rural setting, as most of the hot spots have occurred in the cities.

After a peak in cases in Nov '20, and a strict lockdown and curfew, the case numbers have now come down massively as have hospitalisations.

Deconfinement is now total; Restaurants can serve inside and on terraces, Museums are open, Markets & Shopping Centres are open, and the Curfew is over. Regarding masks, outside they are no longer required, but inside public spaces (ie supermarkets, shops etc) they are compulsory.

Vaccination rates have increased massively from March and have remained at their highest from June into July. And some good news, in order to increase the vaccination rate further, and to reduce the impact of the Delta variant, from the 1st of Aug entrance to a lot of establishments (restaurants, cafes, supermarkets etc) will require proof of double vaccination or a 48h negative PCR test. The same proof that will be necessary for international visitors to enter France in the first place.

So given the improved situation, we are planning to restart our tours after the summer heat, from the 29th Aug '21 at both our B&B and Villa based tours.

And remember, you can make a new booking with confidence, with our no risk reservation policy. Knowing that if things should change, we would refund payments – no arguments!

We look forward to seeing our bikers again - Vive les holidays!

Please do contact us if you have any questions.

Our Covid-19 bike tour measures.

Vaccination requirements.

We are confident about receiving our biker guests, as, as it stands at the moment, any international traveller coming into France will have to have shown evidence of a double vaccination (+ 7 days) or a negative PCR test carried out 48h before arrival, so any guests arriving at the B&B or Villa should be covered against Covid.

Furthermore, and for your peace of mind (and ours), we’re happy to say that our entire family has been vaccinated, so again we’re covered, and ready to have a good time with our guests.

Covid measures and our tours.

We are of course implementing all necessary Covid-19 measures to keep everybody as safe as possible. Something that is relatively easy given that we have lots of space at our properties and that we run relatively small group numbers, with no more than 8 guests at any one time at the B&B - and no more than 6 guests at the villa. These are not mass tours.

Measures at the B&B -

  • Hydroalcoholic gels and tissues in each room and at strategic points around the property, along with enhanced end of stay cleaning.
  • Additional daily cleaning measures at the property.

Measures at the Villa -

  • Hydroalcoholic gels and tissues in each room and at strategic points around the properties, along with enhanced end of stay cleaning.
  • All bike equipment sanitised at the beginning and end of your tour.

Also something to remember is that our guests spend the majority of their time out biking in their own small groups, made up of family and friends. The biking is also in a low density, rural setting, with the majority of the time being spent in open countryside and the small villages that we visit along the way. Areas, that to date, have been less impacted by Covid-19 than urban areas.

Our B&B based tours are on the edge of the small village of Coustellet, whereas our Villa based tours are in the small village of Taillades.

Another advantage that we have is that we can minimise risks by using the quieter, smaller, yet convenient transport hubs to get to our locations. Marignane/Marseille airport is a medium sized, relatively quiet airport (yet it has good links) and we have the Avignon high speed train station (TGV) - which are both just a 50 min car journey away.

If you have any questions regarding an existing booking or a future booking, please contact us.

Hope to see you for some great cycling in Provence – Neil & Nat Cowell - (Owners).

e now have a new No Risk Reservation Policy in place: You can book now & pay just 30 days prior to your tour start date. And, if you cannot or don't feel comfortable travelling on your planned dates due to Covid and need to cancel, we will refund any payments - no arguments.
