Alps & Monaco Tour
All of our tours are designed to give the maximum flexibility to ensure everybody gets what they want from the holiday. Each day we offer three routes of different lengths and covering different terrain and we always include a double- or triple-night stop in at least one location to give 'days-off' to those who want to mix riding with relaxing.
As we can have a wide variety of machines on any tour - solos, sidecars and classics - as well as a range of abilities and riding styles we don't expect everybody to ride together but we do find that very often riders of like minds tend to team up for a day or more. The Moto Provencale guide will always be there at the start and end of each day to ensure everybody has all the information they need and will accompany any rider who wants company. Should anybody have a problem during the day we can quickly take their exact location from their GPS and drive straight to them - no more guessing which country lane you are parked on!
Our Alps and Monaco trip is a chance to see the wide variety of landscape and colour on show in Provence. Starting from St Remy.
Monday - We start with coffee in Lourmarin, my favourite
village in the whole of France before heading on through the very start of the
Alps to Sisteron, our base for the next three nights.
Tuesday - Famous as the first
town Napoleon walked into after escaping from Elba on his way to oblivion at
Waterloo you can stroll around the castle of Sisteron before our day in the
‘High Alps’ with its spectacular scenery and switchbacks.
Wednesday - We head south to
the Gorges du Verdon – the ‘grand Canyon of Europe’. You can take all day
to ride around the gorge and maybe try swimming or canoeing down it or strike
out further afield around the pine-clad regions of middle provence.
- Put on your yachting cap and Gucci jeans, we’re off to Monaco! Riding down
through the perfume capital of Grasse we drop down through the maritime alps to
Monaco with its harbour casino and famous race track – we have never got close
to Schumakers lap record on a Ural but we keep trying…
Friday - Having stopped in a
hotel just outside Monaco with a spectacular view of the Mediterranean from
every room we head along the coast (skip around to St Tropez if you want to see
the ageing hippys and big boats) to the beautiful harbour at Cassis.
Saturday - Breakfast overlooking the harbour and maybe try a boat trip around the Calanques, the hidden rocky inlets inaccessible by road before riding through the beautiful old town of Aix-en-Provence (the “Paris of the south”) and back through the countryside to St Remy.
As with all of our tours we offer a one or two day sidecar school before the week starts and you can stay on with us for as long as you like afterwards - there's plenty more to see!
Dates All tours begin on a Monday and end on a Saturday, you are welcome to stay with us before and after the tour, or just plan your transfer or travel to arrive on day one.
