Cycling for Softies has launched three new gourmet cycle holidays in France with visits to at least four Michelin-starred restaurants.
Alsace has more Michelin-starred restaurants than any other region of France other than Paris, and a new Cycling for Softies tour involves staying seven nights in chateaux hotels in stunning locations including Kaysersberg, Selestat and Ribeauville.
A Burgundy tour takes cyclists through the lovely Burgundy and Maconnais vineyards and includes stops in Fleurville, Tournus and Briancion while the five night Provence tour is based in glamorous St Remy de Provence, close to St Paul Asylum, where Vincent Van Gogh lived for a year, and the impressive ruins of the Roman town of Glanum. Prices start from £1485 for five nights in Provence. Holidays in Alsace and Burgundy cost £1844 for seven nights.
