The trip from Cognac to La Rochelle takes you on a journey from the fine aroma of cognac, via honest farm odors to the scent of the briny ocean. The route goes along small countryside roads and bicycle lanes, passing villages, hamlets and impressive Roman architecture, partly along the Charente river.
The white town of La Rochelle and its surrounding islands are the French' own vacation paradise on the Atlantic coast. The first cycling tour will lead you from the naval port of Rochefort through coastal villages and along sandy beaches to La Rochelle. The second route brings you to the coast's most beautiful island; Ile-de-Ré.
On this self-guided biking tour the routes serpent through vineyards, olive groves and sunflower fields to the Pope's old town, Avignon, the vineyard town of Châteauneuf-du-Pape and other less known yet charming sleepy provencal villages. Throughout your whole stay, the cosy Hotel le Glacier will be your home. From 3 to 7 nights; your choice.
