Off the bike...
The time off the bike can be as important as the time on it during a training period, with this in mind our packages and stays have been created with this in mind. Throughout your time with us we are on hand to provide help and guidance, some of the biggest factors to consider are:
Nutrition plays a key part in giving you the energy to train, as well as promoting fast and effective recovery. Through Karen’s experience of study and training in Sports Nutrition we can help guide you through the nutrition process. With our packages that include evening meals we can serve you dinners that are an ideal supplement to your physical activity, made from great, fresh, locally sourced produce.
After a long day in the saddle nothing is better than a massage to rejuvenate your legs or ease any muscular pain you have built up. We have built a relationship with a former World Tour Team soigneur with experience of 12 Grand Tours and 4 World Championships. We can arrange visits to come direct to us so you can get straight into your recovery without having to drive anywhere.
With the area around Mont Ventoux being a hotbed for cycling we are spoilt for choice for some great bike shops. Many of the local shops offer bike rental services from entry level cycles to high end super bikes that would not look out of place on the start line of the Tour. Renting a bike locally can remove the stress during travel and make your journey a lot smoother. With the links that we have built with these local providers we can help you find the best bike for your stay.
None cycling excursions
Even the most avid of cyclists need a bit of time out of the saddle, and Provence is a fantastic region to relax, whether it be the lavender fields of Sault, wine tasting in the world famous vineyards of the Cote du Rhone or the ancient historical cities of Avignon and Orange. We have a library of information in our Summer Kitchen to give you ideas of great places to visit.
Our property is ideally placed for transport links by Air, TGV and Eurostar. Travelling with a bike box can be difficult sometimes so we are happy to assist with transfers.
