A Trek Travel culinary journey biking through Provence begins with a Provençal cooking experience with Michelin-starred Chef Xavier Mathieu at the prestigious Le Phébus hotel. Nestled in the heart of the Luberon, chef Mathieu reinterprets traditional recipes with elegance and creativity using the bounty of local, seasonal markets.
On the second day of your vacation, you will cycle past the picturesque Abbaye de Senanque—a Cistercian abbey dating to the 12th century, whose monks still produce fresh lavender and pure honey. Then, ride to a private lunch and wine tasting at the legendary Château Pesquié, where vines have been cultivated on their grounds for over 2,000 years. Franc, our personal chef, will prepare a spectacular truffle-themed feast under the shadows of the plane trees.
Lunch on the fifth day is hosted at Domaine de la Grangeneuve, a family-owned winery in a restored, drystone farmhouse. Sample award-winning wines and feast on a signature picnic prepared with fresh local ingredients. To finish this culinary cycling adventure, retire to the courtyard at Château de Rochegude for a champagne toast to an incredible journey in southern France. Dinner will be an epicurean delight as our chef, Thierry Frebout, expresses his mastery of the art of French gastronomy. Join Trek Travel on this Provençal experience of a lifetime today.
