bike tour in Provence?

Hi all,

Hoping for advice on a bike tour I'm considering. I'm thinking of going on Breakaway Adventures Provence solo bike tour starting Oct 14 (the date when there's no single supplement charge).

The description is at
http://www.breakaway-adventures.com/...e-cycling.html

The tour starts at Draguignan Les Arcs and sounds lovely.

I speak French, lived in Paris a couple of years an eternity ago, have never been to Provence. I'm 54, bike fairly regularly, but have had some health problems, so I'm looking for a definitely non-strenuous tour, which this is. About 20-25 miles every other day, with optional routes provided if one wants to do more. I'm fine being alone and would probably prefer that to being in a large group. Like to go at my own pace, feel free to linger if I want, take photos, chat with locals, etc.

Anyone gone on this tour or used this company? How difficult is it to get to the start point from Paris?

Appreciate any advice/comments. Thanks!

Cindy

I'm not a cyclist, but I drove thru Provence last May. It is all "hills" er. . . mountains. Be prepared.
