Designed for those who enjoy the leisurely cycle mixed with the social aspect of being outdoors and enjoying great cuisine, Tour De Vines has a tour for every level of cyclist.

Australian wine cycle tourism specialist, Tour De Vines has created three new cycling itineraries in Van Gogh’s romantic home where one can visit medieval castles, dine in incredible restaurants and sample the famed Chateauneuf du Pape wines, amongst many.  These three new programs Provence Roman, Provence Luberon and Tour de Provence complement the already popular Tour de Bordeaux and Tour de Loire Valley programs.  There is something for every level of cyclist from easy to moderate to experienced, with a wide range of departures beginning in May and continuing to October.

Travellers can sample the local food starting with a sweet Cavaillon melon or one of the classified goats’ cheeses accompanied with fresh figs or order a selection of tapenades in this Spanish influenced district.  There are truffles, bouillabaisse and the local daube (beef casserole) finished off with ambrosia of the gods made by Chocolatier Joel Durand in St Remy or the master Nougatier Boyer of Sault might provide a lighter option.

Tour de Vines itineraries are designed to immerse you in the environment and culture and especially in the traditional flavours that permeate Provencal cuisine and wines seeking out the road less travelled on inspirational cycling journeys.

The Tour de Provence itineraries start at $AUD2800 for seven days and six nights for the Tour de Provence Roman and includes all accommodation, bike hire and helmet, full breakfasts each day and gourmet dinners each night, fine wine and soft drink, two bilingual guides, entry fees to attractions and historical sites.
