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

My wife and I had the privilege to stay 5 days with Neil and Nat from July 5 through July 11 in beautiful Provence. The room was large, comfortable and clean. The meals were spectacular. The countryside is lovely, abounding with lavender and sunflower fields, wild flowers and picturesque villages. The food and facilities are impressive, however, the best part... More

My partner and I stayed with Neil, Nat and their family for four nights. They are both excellent hosts. The holiday was unique and one we'll never forget, we could not recommend it highly enough. Self guided cycling was the perfect way to see beautiful Provence at our own pace. Neil has excellent knowledge of the area and offered advice... More

While Provence Cycling Holidays is, as the name suggests, especially geared towards cyclists, our group contained two non-cyclists, who had just as marvellous an experience as the two who cycled. Neil's thorough and well-planned self-guided bike tours could easily be adapted for car travel. Before each excursion, we received a detailed briefing on road/trail conditions. Because Neil and Natalene know... More

lucykitty and other reviewers have really said it all! A really excellent holiday. Neil and Nat give a great welcome and great food. They are the perfect hosts. Easy to add your own extra such as sundowners and nibbles on return from a day out cycling in the most beautiful part of France. Local restaurants that Neil recommends are very... More

After reading the most recent reviews, I'm not sure I can add to what Peter_Ann_1, Roger B, or the Austraveller10001 have said and I agree with all of them. We stayed here for 7 nights and biked for 5 days. I've gone on other bike trips and Memoires de Provence is a favorite. Why? 1. The owners: Neil and Nat,... More
