Next July 14 : The Tour de France rides again in Gordes in front of Mas des Etoiles !

Yes, it is fantastic : We had Tour de France in Luberon last July 21, 2014, just two years ago. And the organizers like Gordes !

This year it is on Thursday July 14, the Bastille Day. Unique.

Biking in Luberon area around Gordes from the B&B is the thing to do. We make all the arrangements for you.

You can book your room here (Click).
