Lourmarin and the Tour de France

The 2020 route of the Tour de France has been announced – and the start will be (drumroll …) in the south of France!

Nice will host of the Grand Départ 2020 – find out more!

The last time Le Tour came through Lourmarin was in 2017, and we were so thrilled to be there. The excitement was palpable and the village was full to the brim with fans of all ages and nationalities, cheering as the float parade came through, and waiting patiently for hours to catch a very brief glimpse of all their cycling heroes as they went whizzing by.

We took lots of happy snaps (below), and you can see more from the day in this lovely Shutters & Sunflowers photo essay.

Watch the #TDF2017 Stage 19 teaser summary video of the 220km stage, the longest of the 2017 race, as well as the highlights of that day.

Watch the official highlights of the entire 2017 event below. We get goose bumps every time from the combination of the dramatic action and the wonderful French scenery!
