Great Places:

Carcassonne, this fortified city dating back to Roman times will surely impress.  During the crusades and middle ages, Carcassonne played an important role.  On several occasions it was besieged, although never overrun.  Walk the streets and ramparts to get a feel of what life was like back in the day.

Great Places:

Mount Ventoux although part of the Alps, many people think it belongs to another mountain range since it towers over everything nearby. At 1,909 m (6,263 ft), it is the highest mountain in the region and has been nicknamed the “Bald Mountain” the “Beast of Provence”, or “Giant of Provence”.

The wind blows at over 90 km/h (56 mph) for 240 days a year.  The top is devoid of any vegetation.  The limestone cap covering the peak gives the Ventoux a lunar like atmosphere.

Kick Ass Riding

Did we say already say kick ass riding?  Hell yes.

More famous roads you’ve never heard of.  It doesn’t matter if you know their names, as long as you can tame them.  Throw the Vercors mountain range in there for good measure.  Just when you thought the Alps & Pyrenees were enough, bam, we include the Vercors.  We bet you’re gonna love riding through the Vercors.  Stupendous gorges, dizzying balcony roads, enchanted forests.
