Discover the Provencal authenticity through a trip to the heart of an emblematic place of land of Provence: the massif of the Montagnette.
The 30 kilometer loop in the heart of the Montagnette massif will leave you with a lot of memories (and thighs!). This 4-hour ride on the outskirts of Graveson, village of the fauvist painter Auguste Chabaud, and which takes you to the Abbey of Saint-Michel de Frigolet requires a little endurance. Don't worry! There is also a 15 kilometer loop to admire Provence by bike and with your family. A nice walk of 1h30 which takes you to discover the village of Barbentane and its surroundings. And take advantage of the picnic areas for a delicious meal on the go in the open air.
