Provence Explorer Ride
Provence France

We are happy to offer several new itineraries in Provence this year. Ride along ancient Roman roads, into villages where the horses drink from the fountain and chat with the locals. Then canter through fields of lavender, gaze at the snow-topped Alps and the ink-blue Mediterranean at the same time! With the horses tethered nearby, we picnic on French bread, cheese and local wines - this is what our rides in Provence are all about. The rides begin at Mas de Recaute, located in the heart of Provence, in the Regional Natural Park of the Luberon and at the foot of the south side of the massif. From here we will take you through Luberon into the Upper Provence.

From the Luberon to Upper Provence: From Luberon Nature Park to the foot of Mount Ventoux, discover the heart of Provence. A trail ride filled with the enchanting lights and scents between the Alps and the Mediterranean. Along the way, you will travel through ancient villages and along the fields of lavender. This ride deserves a special mention for the quality of the cuisine and lodging!
