Why not make your cycling holiday even more special? Add a shot of luxury with a night or two in one of our fabulous châteaux hotels in France. This year we’ve got three to choose from: two are in Provence, one is in the Loire. Gorgeous either on their own, or as an add-on treat to your holiday. All are welcoming and indulgent, wonderfully deluxe, with stunning pools and beautiful grounds. Perfect for birthdays, honeymoons, anniversaries... or just because.
Excellent service awaits you at these sublime hotels. After you have settled into your room, head downstairs for a pre-supper apéritif before indulging in a gastronomic four-course feast, served with the finest wines.
The days are your own. You’ll have bikes, maps and suggested routes at your disposal. Equally, you could just book a massage, visit a vineyard or relax in the gardens with a book. What could possibly be better?
"We chose your Loire Chateau Escape for our honeymoon on your recommendation - what a fabulous place! Everything was perfect from beginning to end."
