Provence


Land of light 

Set out, like Van Gogh, in search of that special Provençal light, and it might just transform your art, too—the art of cycling, that is... Whether the sun is summer or fall, everything dazzles. A touch of orange against the backdrop of an ancient theatre, hints of red and white in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, the luminous limestone of Mount Sainte-Victoire... Provence has only just begun to reveal its many colours. You will soon understand why Cézanne exclaimed, “Long live the sun which gives us such beautiful colour!” To reach the summit of your art, choose the Mount Ventoux option and climb toward its white peak. Provence: luminescent? This land of light will dazzle you!
