France offers a wealth of experiences beyond the delectable cuisine, fine wines, rich history, champagne, enchanting villages, and bustling weekend markets—although these undoubtedly enrich your camp we want to ride.
Bienvenue en France! Our week begins with a fun little ride to get us settled in the area. A little loop will take us south through the outskirts of Carpentras, where one of the most famous Tour de France stages resides. There is a nice little climb to test the legs after travel and dial in the bike sizing.
One of our favourite routes is from the house to Bedoin past Monieux and descend into the valley towards Carpentras. A truely epic 90kms ride taking in the old roman towns and beautiful valleys the Vaucluse region is known for.
We couldn't come to this region without climbing the iconic Mont Ventoux. We will have routes planned for all three sides however, we will be conquering the mighty beast from Sault providing a serious challenge for all riders. No better reason to stay motivated in the early spring.
In true Wheelhouse fashion we have placed a premium on the accomodations with every detail covered so you only have to worry about pedalling harder. We have reserved a luxury chateau in Provence which was recently renovated to a high standard. The expansive grounds include woodland paths, lovely gardens and a large private pool with dining terrace, and an outdoor cooking area. The charming local village (1.5 km) has the shops you need, a small weekly market and a great bar and brasserie. If you’d like to explore the region further, visit the markets at Vaison le Romaine and Carpentras for produce and souvenirs.
