We will guide you to discover this world famous region from another angle: on your bike, riding mostly on picturesque country roads. The whole week-end will be a perfect mix of classified “cols” of Tour de France (but achievable), with rides along the Mediterranean coast. Thanks to its year-round mild weather (300 days of sun per year), perfect road surface and terrain, many pros from the “peloton” are living in this region.
