Up To The Valensole Plateau And Discovering Greoux
Distance: 7 miles (11km)
Total ascent: 1,000 feet (300m)

"We will climb up to the vast plateau of Valensole behind the town to take in the wide sweeping horizon towards Manosque and the mountains. Using an old livestock droving route, passing lavender and olive plantations, we travel across the plateau. Meeting the old road from Manosque we start our descent to arrive eventually beneath the ancient walls of Gréoux castle. We have time to explore before a final short descent into the heart of the old town, where you can choose to explore its narrow streets and linger over a drink or continue back to the hotel and a swim perhaps."

Highlight: Spectacular views down to Manosque from the Valensole plateau.
