Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.

Planet

On a bike you are no longer an observer — you are an active participant in the local environment and culture.

We promise to use many quiet local roads for our routes. Traveling on small and quiet roads, this tour will allow you to experience part of the rural countryside and ride through famous and authentic villages that beautifully illustrate the multi-faceted Provençal character.

We promise a variety of locally produced and grown products will be accessible on our tours. During this trip you may get to experience the best of fine local produce by tasting traditional Provencal wines and dishes like Le Papeton d’aubergine or Tarte Chaude aux Abricots or by directly buying authentic Provencal food and produce, like the Cavaillon melon, Lavender, etc.

We promise to encourage environmentally-friendly travel alternatives. To further improve eco-friendly solutions we recommend train travel. To travel within Europe, we recommend taking trains over renting cars or air transports. Trains are more energy-efficient and will minimize CO2 emissions per capita.

We promise to strive for sustainable recycling and transportation options. In cities, we recommend clients use public transportation, bicycles, or walking. City bike rentals are more and more widely available in big and medium-sized cities across Europe. They are the best way to get around congested cities.

People

We promise to provide access to local Provencal arts and crafts and to give sponsors of the local economy the opportunity to display their goods to an international clientele.

We promise to support local and family run hotels and restaurants. Forget the non-descript and indistinguishable big chain hotels; we use genuine places with local charm. We relying on local guides and family-owned hotels, and we hope to ensure a warm, personalized welcome. We expect these properties to be run by people who have a passion for the Provence region, culture, gastronomy, and historical heritage. We use genuine places with local charm, blending harmoniously into the environment. Our hotels offer guests a pleasant, proper environment. Some of them have as few as two rooms, while others are small personal hotels.

We promise to team up with local bicycle renters throughout France. We value their expert work and most of our clients are renting bikes directly through them instead of bringing their own. This, of course, benefits the local economy.

We are based in France. This is where we live and work. Our office is located in the French Alps, just a stone’s throw from the Swiss border, and we ride the very same roads we recommend for our cycling vacations. As firm believers of sustainable development, we have established a friendly network of professionals, comprised mainly of local tour guides, small operators, and family-run agencies. Most of our people have created their own jobs/enterprises in order to live out their passion for the region and cultural heritage. All have extensive travel experience and have lived in various places before falling in love with the area they now call home. We promise that traveling with us guarantees you will be taken care of by dedicated professionals who chose to build their lives here.
