Discovering the area on an electric bike

New ! Hire an electric bike

Hiring an electric bike is a great way to get around the town easily or to explore the surrounding villages. It’s also the best way to conquer the steep terrain of Provence and the Verdon region. Whilst it looks and is driven like a normal bike, an e-bike has a concealed battery that provides electric assistance for around 70km or more. These electric bikes can be hired at the Bike-Rental Agency in Gréoux-les-Bains. Please refer to the Tourist Office for further details.
