La Ferme des Bélugues offers both B&B and self-catered accommodation. It's a home from home run by Karen and Spencer, both cyclists. Located just 3km from the start of the Ventoux climb at Malaucène or 10km from Bedoin, it's the perfect base for an assault on one of the most iconic Tour de France summits. For gentler rides, the lavender fields and vineyards of Provence are within easy reach. Karen and Spencer host independent riders as well as cycle tour companies and pro riders, so it's fair to say they are local cycling experts. They arrived here four years ago and have lovingly renovated the house to ensure it is cycling-friendly while also retaining its original charm and character. All the facilities are geared towards cyclists: there's a pool for post-ride cooling off (and perfect for non-cycling partners and friends) and a stunning bike room, while extra services such as bike hire, massages, and yoga can be arranged. In all there are 5 double rooms plus a self-catering studio for two people.

She has five lavishly decorated bedrooms (with lovely walk-in showers – perfect after a day on the road), as well as two studio apartments in her gorgeous restored townhouse.
