Prize Draw – ‘Starry Nights in Provence’ leisurely, self-guided cycling holiday courtesy of Cycling for Softies

Starry Nights in Provence by Cycling for Softies This prize draw is now closed.

For this month’s prize, you have the chance to win a fantastic five-night half-board cycling break for two in Provence, France. Our partner Cycling for Softies curated this tour based on client feedback, taking the very best bits from a longer cycling tour to create a unique, leisurely experience with inspiration drawn from Van Gogh’s famous painting, ‘Starry Nights’.

You will cycle between beautiful Provençal villages and stay at luxury 4 and 5-star boutique hotels. You will also have the option to upgrade to an e-bike if you want to.

Begin in the beautiful town of St Rémy de Provence, with its historic square, winding streets and Van Gogh heritage. The next day, head toward the hilltop fortress of Baux-de-Provence. Here, the cobbled streets are lined with lovely cafés and the views from the medieval ‘Citadelle des Baux’ are magnificent.

Starry Nights in Provence by Cycling for Softies Over the next few days, you will cycle west to meet the Rhône river at the twin towns of Beaucaire and Tarascon (with its stunning castle not to be missed). The route then continues southwards, following small roads to Arles. You will head south into the Camargue Nature Reserve, which covers Europe’s largest river delta. The beautiful wetlands and salt water lagoons here are a haven for a wide range of wildlife.

Finally, you will return to St Rémy de Provence, taking you past Château de Barbegal and winding around the southwestern corner of the Alpilles.
