After a smooth start, a road climb leads you a route that passes under the impressive Madeleine cliff that overhangs the village of Lioux. This is followed by an abrupt ascent via track and road to Murs.
The route then alternates between paths and bucolic roads to reach the famous village of Gordes. After this comes a steep ascent on a beautiful path, then a long descent following tracks in a crude landscape of limestone and stones, leading you above the Fontaine-de-Vaucluse.
