Cave dwellings, dry-stone huts, prehistoric vestiges, natural wonders and hidden chapels are all a part of the discovery. The next best thing about Provence is that you can choose the way you want to discover. By bike, by foot, by classic 2CV or even by scooter, Provence caters to every type of wanderer. One of the best routes for a casual bike ride is from Goult to Roussillon passing through Joucas and the winery Chateau Blanc. Stop to take a walking tour of Roussillon one of the most popular villages in the Luberon. The views over the rugged rocks, plenty of pretty cafés, quirky boutiques and 15 art galleries are a magnet for tourists. Afterwards carry on your ride down the hill to the Roman-built bridge, Le Pont Julien. This area is home to the world’s largest ochre deposit and the hues of red and orange contrasted with the green vines and Provencal blue sun make this a bike ride to remember.
