Day One: Welcome to Provence
Your guides will greet you at the Avignon TGV train station, and the adventure begins! We will toast our arrival at a sixteenth-century Provençal Bastide (fortified town) where we will have our introduction to Cotes de Ventoux wines. After a wine tasting and light lunch, we’ll hop on our bikes and pedal through the beautiful countryside to our hotel at the base of Mont Ventoux, the famous bare peak that dominates the landscape. Enjoy stunning views from the hotel before tonight’s dinner where the chef will delight us with authentic Provençal fare.
