We spent a week in Provence. Near the town of Bonnieux. This area is so incredible. Mt. Ventoux is near. Lavender town of Sault is a favorite. Don't want to influence you to not go with a tour company if that is both your passion.
But, Provence is so awesome. Such a romantic area. Beautiful terrain. Nice resorts. Honeymoon? Difficult to admit there is another side to life other than biking. Even though my wife would not belive me saying that.
I just wondered if you consider the Romantic aspects of Provence, maybe cycling is just like no more than 50% of the reason to go to Provence. I'd certainly spend 50% of my time on the bike on a honeymoon. But, what about the other fifty percent of your honeymoon.
My honeymoon with my cyclist wife, I'd stay in a beautiful resort in some idyllic spot and ride half the time. Cycling is so popular there, you would not be cheated out of great cycling by just following your instincts and ask about for the best bike routes.
Provence. what a choice. Have a great honeymoon. If cycling is both your passion, then that is great too.
But on the other hand. I think I see the sights better from a saddle of my bike over other forms of transportation. Just that Provence is something really special. Sure would not want to get saddle sores on this particular vacation.
