Welcome to VELOVENTOUX - the best cycling holidays in Provence and The French Alps. Guaranteed.
Mont Ventoux is the most famous mountain in cycling. A regular Tour de France highlight. A magnet for cyclists the world over.
VELOVENTOUX is based in Ventoux’s shadow, in the beautiful village of Faucon, and run by British cycling aficionado Craig Entwistle and his wife Vicky.
We have thousands of kilometres of fantastic bike routes right on our doorstep. We provide not just bed and breakfast, but all the advice and support you need to get the most out of your stay. We cater for all abilities, from pottering around through the vineyards to cyclosportives and full on training camps, or taking on Ventoux and the Alpe d’Huez - and everything in between - in a single day.
At VELOVENTOUX, we love cycling, we love the Ventoux, we love this region that has the best that France has to offer. And we love the fact that so many of our visitors keep coming back for more.
Please take a look at our website. We feel confident you will want to join them. A bientot. Vive le velo.

Hi Craig & Vicky
On behalf of the John Lewis Venture Club, thank you so much for making our stay in Provence and our Cingles challenge so enjoyable.
We loved your set up, and were made to feel very welcome and at home in Faucon.
I'm very glad we chose Veloventoux, and hope we can book a future trip for the club with you. Do stay in touch, and let us know of any future events we might be interested in.
Micheal Flood, John Lewis Partenership.
Hi Vicky and Craig
I just wanted to drop you a line to thank you for all your help in making our few days in Provence so enjoyable. I'm still on a high from it and am dreaming of climbing up more HC mountains next year. I must be mad!
Nick Gendler, Australia.
