This is the ultimate tour for keen cyclists looking for an active holiday to enjoy solo or with friends. You’ll get the chance to do a sporty loop in the unique Drôme Provençal region, conquering the region’s toughest cols and discovering its diverse landscapes.

Day 1 Arrive in Vaison la Romaine

Check into your hotel in Vaison la Romaine. Once settled in, take the time to visit this beautiful medieval town, with its Roman ruins, cobbled streets and the river Ouveze that surrounds it. Sit back and relax on one of its many terraces or get those legs spinning with a quick ride!

Night in Vaison la Romaine

For this first stage, you leave Vaison la Romain and head towards the Baronnies regional park, where you will climb your first col. You’ll make you way to Nyons for the evening, the most northerly olive growing region in Europe!

75km with 1200m+

Night in Nyons

Another big day await you as you head North to enter the pre-alps of the Drôme region. Your first challenge will be the col de Valouse, after which you’ll be fairly rewarded with spectacular views of the valley below. Next you’ll cycle through Dieulefit a peaceful village lying on the banks of a river, speckled with pastel pink, blue and green houses. You’ll end the day in the tiny village of Chabrillan with its population of 600!

75km with 1400m+

Night in Chabrillan

A slightly easier day ahead. You will pass Marsanne and Mirmande, two quintessentially Provençal villages separated by the Col de la Grande Limite at 515 m above sea level. You will end in Grignan which is dominated by its Chateau built on a rocky outcrop overlooking the village.

60km with 1100m+

Night in Grignan

Hill top villages, towering castle, vineyards as far as the eye can see… here is glimpse of the program for your last day. You’ll spend the night in Vaison la Romaine giving you ample time to explore what you might have missed on your first night in the village.
