Our Happy Clients!

Just back from a fantastic week with Veloventoux. First visit to Provence and it was not disappointing, scenery is brilliant especially with Mt. Ventoux dominating it.
Hosts Craig and Vicky are a great couple and both Craig and Andy are very knowledgable of the many routes to cycle in the area.
I highly recommend Veloventoux if you want a cycling trip to remember. You won’t be disappointed!

Two friends and I recently spent a week with Craig, Vicky and crew. I would highly recommend them. for a cycling holiday. We had a most enjoyable and testing week on the mountains near Faucon. The highlight of course being our ascent of Mont Ventoux. There are also some lovely local routes ranging from a 65k to a 110k spin. Vicky also cooked some delicious evening meals for us. For any cyclist looking for a relaxing place to stay coupled with expert guidance, good food, look no further than Veloventoux.

Don’t often write on here, but felt compelled to after the trip we’ve just had to Ventoux. Craig, Vicky, Andy and Ben couldn’t have done any more for us – great accommodation, lovely food, help and advice with everything from major bike repairs (mine!), restaurant booking, laundry, guiding – the list goes on. Place is lovely too – location is excellent. If you’re looking for a base for some of the best cycling in the world, this place is for you. Sure we’ll be back

Very professional and friendly service by Craig and Ben. Stayed with them in Italy for 4 nights supported cycling in the Dolomites. Always approachable and knowledgeable with excellent local knowledge. Reccomended!

I stayed here as a solo traveller in September 2017. Craig had arranged a hire bike which was ready and waiting for me, the other visitors during the week were sociable and great company. I did a mix of group, guided and solo rides – perfect. Great accommodation, great company and great hosts! All the extras that money can’t buy. Thanks Craig and Vicky

21 of us from Salt and Sham cycle club near Bristol have just returned from 3 days riding in the Dolomites staying near Corvara in Badia. This is the third trip we have done with Craig and Veloventoux and it was superb – faultless organisation and Craig is great fun. Super memories – thanks Craig and his assistant, Ben. See you next year!

We enjoyed a wonderful holiday with Veloventoux despite me taking a bug out with me. Vicky and Craig are welcoming hosts and the guides, friendly with helpful information, whether you use them or not.

Eventually I joined in with my other half and we enjoyed superb hire bikes organised by Veloventoux, great food and Provence’s magnificent cycling.

We headed up Ventoux but our other outings had so much to offer too; dramatic views, delightful ascents and downhills to remember.

We’d definitely recommend Veloventoux – they are organised and we were well looked after from start to finish. Thank you all

As part of 50th birthday celebrations, we wanted to cycle up Mont Ventoux – which had been a longtime dream. When researching options, we came across Veloventoux early on and we are so grateful we did. From our earliest contact with Craig and Vicky, they could not have been more helpful and took a lot of the stress out of organising the trip. Once we’d booked and arrived in Provence, the level of support was brilliant. We were met at Marseilles airport and taken back to Faucon for a lovely evening meal prepared by Vicky; we were made to feel part of the family straightaway.
We then had 6 days of outstanding bike riding in Provence including a successful assault on Ventoux. Andy and Ben, part of the Veloventoux team, were extremely helpful in offering guidance on routes, mechanical assistance as needed, and more general cycling expertise. The back up from a cycling perspective could not have been better and this meant we had a superb holiday – easily one of the most memorable we’ve ever had.

We are finally home after a month long trip to Provence and Cinque Terre. The highlight of this trip was the week at the amazing Veloventoux house! This was a surprise 60th birthday trip for myself, an avid recreational cyclist from Calgary, Canada along with my wife & high school buddy. We felt at home the minute we got there! The accommodation was super quiet and comfortable. The breakfast was always perfect and set us up for a great day on the bike. Of course the best part was the time on the road with Craig & Ben. They were a joy to be with, making the rides amazing experiences. What they actually share at Veloventoux is much more than what is stated in the website…..which is the perfect way Vicky,Craig & Ben share their love for this region and for cycling with their guests. We will be back
