We are planning a bike trip next summer. We have biked once before through Provence (St. Remy, etc). This time we are basing ourselves near Bedoin to do Mt Ventoux for about 5 days' total in riding. Do you know anyone that can help us map out some routes? We are unfamiliar with the area and would welcome someone's planning.

We are also thinking of renting a villa or staying in a property like Crillon Le Brave only not as expensive:).

Julia reports back:

Lyn, you have been a huge help.

We are all set for Provence. Now we need to figure out a self-guided in Corsica!
