Sensation Luberon - A unique sporting experience in the middle of nature

Go on an adventure with a cycling sports program scheduled every day. Your efforts will be rewarded with tasty meals and typical and preserved places.

Set in a green setting of 50 hectares, the Château de Buoux is a historic monument dating from the 16th century. This is an ideal place for groups looking for sporting challenges and thrills. Enjoy a full board plan and discover the Luberon Regional Natural Park on the small quiet roads from your place of residence. Every day, you will wake up in a listed castle, surrounded by nature, and go in search of the hidden treasures of the Luberon.

On the program:

Day 1: Welcome to Buoux

Take the time to settle down at the castle and discover this historic monument that stretches over 50 hectares in the heart of the Luberon Regional Natural Park. You can stretch your legs with a small walk punctuated by panoramic views of the Fort de Buoux, the Luberon massif and the Aiguebrun valley.

Back and dinner at the Château.

Day 2: Challenge the Colorado Provencal

Buoux — Apt — Rustrel — Simiane-la-Rotonde — Saignon — Buoux (75 km - D+ 1460 m)

Departure after breakfast for a 75 km loop in which you will cross the famous Luberon ochres and discover a must-see, the “Colorado Provencal”, or how to feel like crossing the Atlantic by pedal... but also Simiane-la-Rotonde, a village classified “City of Character”. This hilly bike course will put you on legs for the rest of the stay! Forests, typical villages, large spaces... you will be spoilt for choice to take your breaks and enjoy the packed lunches distributed early in the day.

Back and dinner at the Château.

Day 3: Storming the hilltop villages

Buoux — Bonnieux — Menerbes — Gordes — Walls — Roussillon — Buoux (76 km - D+ 1390 m)

Departure after a hearty breakfast for a new 77 km loop in which you will face surprising and arduous climbs leading to the “Most Beautiful Villages de France”. Bonnieux, Gordes, Ménerbes, Roussillon... these listed Provencal villages will no longer have secrets for you at the end of the day!

Back and dinner at the Château.

Day 4: Between vineyards and castles

Buoux — Combe de Lourmarin — Pertuis — La Tour d'Aigues — Buoux (80 km - D+ 760 m)

Equal distance to the previous routes, this day will surprise you with the variety of landscapes it offers. A little less complex at the level of elevation, this day will be an opportunity to stop and enjoy local products: honey, Provencal wines, olive oils, lavender... Bastide du Laval in Cadenet, Caveau de Marrenon at the Tour d'Aigues or the distillery of the Agnels in Buoux, the proposals will not miss!

Back and dinner at the Château.

Day 5: Little Tour of the Grand Luberon

Buoux — Combe de Lourmarin — Cucuron — Vitrolles-en-Luberon — Castellet — Buoux (78 km - D+ 1170 m)

Finish your stay in beauty with a last loop on the South Luberon side. This bike route will offer you the opportunity to overcome yourself by varying the elevations of Auribeau to Lourmarin, village of Albert Camus, passing through Cucuron and its shaded pond basin conducive to tasting an artisanal ice on the terrace.

Return to the Castle and departure of the group.
