Between sea and mountains

Welcome to the land of Provence, where the air is mild but the gradients are not! Departing from Nice, discover the charm of Provence as you drive past endless lavender fields and small villages with terracotta-colored stone houses.

Sisteron and its Baume rock will take your breath away, as will the arrival at Moustiers-Sainte-Marie, one of France's most beautiful villages, where the surrounding mountains seem to watch over the Moustiérains.

In Provence, every glance is a surprise, a story, a source of wonder. All that's missing is you!

Ride Self-guided

With the Self-guided formula, enjoy your stay according to your desires, in total independence. We give you the itinerary, we book your accommodation and the rest is up to you!
