Ventavon & Upaix

This is one of our favourite first day routes  as it’s a perfect introduction to the area without too much climbing. After the obligatory lunch or coffee stop in Ventavon there are a few options for getting back to Serre Des Ormes. The route starts by descending the Gorges de La Meouge before crossing the picturesque Buech valley and heading north up the Ventavon canal with stunning views of the Alps. After climbing up to the village of Ventavon for a coffee at the stunning Auberge the route described here returns via the perched village of Upaix. The lookout tower is well worth the sharp but short climb!!

Route suggested by Paul and Kate at Serre Des Ormes Cycling Retreat based in the spectacular Gorges de La Méouge. Please contact us for more route and holiday details.
