Join the riders in the 2016 Tour de France as they climb the Mont Ventoux, one of the most famous and grueling stages of the Tour. Plan your trip to Provence to see the Tour and enjoy the ambiance of the South of France. Even if you rate yourself as ‘moderate’ on the adventuresome scale, organizing and booking your own excursion to witness the cyclists while living in a rental property is not a daunting undertaking. Various tour operators are offering packaged trips at a hefty price. Why not chart your own course? There is every type of accommodation available in the department of the Vaucluse, which the riders will traverse, and the supply is plentiful. The vistas are stunning and the rosé chilled. Establish your home base and enjoy a week in the sun amidst the excitement of the Tour de France and the leisurely life of Provence.
