I cannot say enough good things about our trip to Provence Cycling Holidays/Memoires de Provence. We were 2 couples (40s & 50s) traveling together & this was perfect for us. Biking through Provence is the most fabulous way to really see & enjoy the area, and having a "home base" where you can unpack for the week & come back... More

My husband and I just returned from our second visit to Memoires de Province. Our second visit was even better than we had remembered. Neil and Natalene go way beyond what one expects in terms of hospitality to make their guests feel right at home. Neil has spent a lot of time to create wonderful bike routes. He is always... More

This was our second trip to Neil and Nat's lovely farm house for a cycling holiday. As we found during our first visit, the location is ideal, the acccomodations superior, the surrounding countryside and villages are beautiful, the meals delicious and best of all the hosts treat you like members of their family. Neil's encyclopedic knowledge of the Luberon region... More

Our five days stay with Provence Cycling Holidays (aka Memoires de Provence) was exceptional in all regards. Owner Neil Cowell provided very nice bikes and a careful orientation to the use of the GPS devices that guide you along routes. Neil gave personalized advice in selecting routes that were just perfect for us; we went along incredibly quiet county lanes... More

Neil and his wife Natalène (Nat) have created an amazing vacation paradise within the historical and beautiful French Country landscape, tucked within the Luberon Hills of Provence. Here is a rundown of the high notes: 1. Location: So much to see, all reachable from the inn. The hub and spoke approach was excellent with so many villages all reachable for... More

Based in this lovely B&B in Coustellet, we enjoyed a holiday of sight-seeing, gentle cycling, rather hillier cycling - and my dream of pedalling up Mont Ventoux. We chose from Neil's vast selection of self-guided routes which are loaded onto a Garmin. He also produced a tailor-made day tour for us. His local knowledge meant we really made the most... More

If you are keen to explore the stunning Luberon Park by bike without the hassle of transporting your gear, then this is undoubtedly the holiday for you. The Cowells have established an excellent base from which to visit vineyards and old villages and ride on wonderfully quiet Provencal roads. The experience is enhanced by so many wonderful features: the farmouse... More

We had a perfect 8 days stay in July. There were plenty of cycling routes to choose from, we are not very experienced cyclists so it was great to be able to choose how much cycling we wanted to do every day and how much time to spend in the beautiful old villages on the way. You could make it... More

What a delightful vacation! We were looking for a chance to get an authentic feel for Provence while having an active and varied experience in the region. My husband and I could not have had a better experience than our stay with Neil, Nat and their lovely children. There were other couples staying there, too, and the easy warmth that... More
