France

If landscapes were designed specifically for cyclists, they would probably look a lot like France. Rolling hills, winding rivers, vast open plains and bountiful vineyards; it’s little wonder France is one of the most popular cycling destinations in the world. Planned with a natural penchant for detail; we offer a number of stunning French tours, each accompanied by boat or hotels stays and varied in exactly what they have to offer.

Cycling in France almost always entails a pedal through one of its vineyards. In fairness, they’re rather hard to miss in a country that produces between 7-8 billion bottles of wine a year! Our French cycling holiday from Avignon to Aigues-Mortes includes a highly necessary tasting tour at the vineyards of internationally renowned Chateauneuf-du-Pape. Well aware that wine isn’t everything (don’t tell the French!), our tour from Orleans to Saumur in the Loire Valley is a fairytale freewheel filled with medieval castles and wistful gardens such as those at Villandry. Other highlights include a monumental route through Paris, starting from Notre Dame and following the Axe Historique through the Arc de Triomphe on your way to London.

We’re very happy to offer you both guided and self-guided cycling holidays in various areas of France. All tours include bicycle hire, maps and accommodation bookings, as well as transportation of luggage in between stays. With or without a tour guide, we’re always just a phone call away for any help or assistance you may require. So whether you’re out for the scenery, the wine or the sites, we guarantee you won’t be disappointed with all that France has to offer. And as they say in beautiful country itself, bon voyage mon amis!
