I live in Provence, and it is really a great place to ride a bike. The roads are in great shape, the scenery is beautiful, there are many villages in case you don't want to camp, and the French themselves are avid cyclists, meaning that the car drivers respect and watch out for them. A lot of the drivers are cyclists themselves.
The Loire Valley is beautiful, too. But, a ride around Gorge Verdun, which is kind of a green Grand Canyon, is a real experience.
You won't go wrong, no matter which you choose, But I would go for Provence, and not just because I live here. If you decide on it, stop in and say hello.
