Bike Lodging trip to Bedoin Mont Ventoux

Domaine des Pins17/03/2015 – Enjoying an over night trip down to visit a number of properties and businesses in the Mont Ventoux region. I set of yesterday from the Alps in warm spring sunshine. The weather remained beautiful all the way on the 3 hour trip up until about 10km from Bedoin, when a bit of rain came in.

The 15 guest bedrooms which sleep up to 30 are basic but with good beds. Meals taken under in a canopy of trees in a beautiful court yard and on chilly nights in a beautifully converted barn. This property will generally be rented on a self-catered basis, but there is a catering service in the local village who are able to come in and provide meals for large groups.

This September, Bike Lodging, who also offer an outside catering service, will be hosting a group of 24 cyclists at this property.
