Les Arcs by bike

Les Arcs-sur-Argens is both very well-served by public transport and ideally located for coastline, countryside, vineyard, hills or mountain cycling for all, whether you are a rookie or a fanatic.

Indeed, at the foot of the village flows L'Argens river which valley allows relaxed family strolls.
Le Massif des Maures further south stretching from the right bank of the river to the sea is a fabulous playground for mountain biking or daily road cycling to the Mediterranean costline.
Les Arcs is also located in the heart of the vineyards « Côte de Provence » and on the foothills of Pre-Alps too.
A pleasant mixed loop vineyard/hills or a sporty scenic route across Verdon Grand Canyon can be therefore planned.
For leisurely rides, La Vigne à vélo, a bicycle path that winds across the vineyardsis a good choice to stay away from motorized traffic and delve into the local culture.

La gare SNCF/routiére Les Arcs-Draguignan (railway and busses station)offers a network of local/regional bus connections and frequent express trains for Nice, Marseille or Paris.
It is worth noting that bicycle facilities are available in all TER (Express Regional Train) with no need to book in advance and at no extra cost.It means you can get off the train with your bike for a stay here. You can also get on the train from your vacation spot here with the good idea to dramatically extend the scope of exploring new places or riding different landscapes.
