First held in 2006, it was rated 2.2 by the UCI for the 2006 and 2007 edition, and 2.1 since. The race was cancelled in 2011, but returned the next year.

With the ending of the Tour de France Féminin after 2009, and the Tour de l'Aude Cycliste Féminin after 2010, the Route de France Féminine became the only major women's stage race held in France, but has not been run since 2016.

Giorgia Bronzini is the most successful stage winner with 10 stage wins.[1]
