Roundtrip to Hyères city or Pierrefeu, approx. 15-62km
The medieval old town with its narrow alleys and colourful houses is small, charming and typically French. A special highlight is the Villa Noailles (Bauhaus), from the castle ruin you can enjoy a fantastic view. Alternatively, all sporty cyclists can cycle through the lonely / hilly hinterland on tiny roads to the small village of Pierrefeu in the middle of the "Côte de Provence" wine growing area and through endless vineyards back to Hyères.
Island Porquerolles, approx. 30km
May we take you to paradise? Passing flaming colonies you cycle to the boat station and transfer to the dream island Porquerolles. The island is car-free, characterized by olive plantations, vineyards and romantic bays with white sandy beaches. Worth seeing are the Plage de Notre Dame, the fort and the Lighthouse.
Roundtrip Le Lavandou, approx. 50km
On well-developed cycle paths you cycle over the old salt works, past vineyards and olive groves - the sea within a few meters - to the fishing village Le Lavandou, at the foot of the Moorish massif. With a little perseverance or by e-bike, a detour to Bormes-les-Mimosas, famous for its panorama and the old town, is worthwhile.
