Cycling at Terre Blanche Hotel Spa Golf Resort
Located in the heart of Provence Côte d’Azur, Terre Blanche is the perfect destination for cycling. The area is well-known for its famous roads that transport you with varied relief from the authentic Provençal landscape to the Mediterranean coastline. In 2013, the Tour de France crossed Fayence during the 5th stage from Cagnes-Sur-Mer to Marseille and in 2014, Fayence welcomed the 6th stage of the famous Paris to Nice cycling competition.
