Cycling Holidays

Our leisurely cycling holidays aren’t about clocking up the miles, they're about the time you'll spend in between. With a warm summer breeze on your skin and beautiful views in every direction, is there any better way to explore the beautiful wine regions of France, Italy and the UK than by bicycle? 

We don't think so. Because there is so much to see and do along the way, our leisurely cycling holidays in Europe are all about taking it nice and slow. From the lavender fields of Provence to coastal routes in Sardinia, our cycling holidays have so much to offer. Stop and explore, eat glorious meals, stay in delightful hotels (your luggage is carried for you) and indulge in the knowledge that everything else has been taken care of.

We are delighted to announce the launch of our cycling holidays in the UK, which will take you to the quintessentially English villages of the Cotswolds and the glorious vineyards and chalky cliffs of Sussex. Rest your head in boutique, beachfront spa hotels and indulge in the finest English sparkling wines and gourmet meals.

"My expectations from friends who have holidayed with you were high. But, I have to say it was quite the best holiday we have ever had."

Mr Bailey, United Kingdom

Sitting in the garden after not too hard a day's cycling - it was so peaceful, birds singing, stream gurgling in the distance. I couldn't help thinking that this is how life is meant to be.
