We went on this "cycling" holiday arranged by Cycing Magnolias at Les Magnolias to be part of some stages of the Tour de France.
This was probably the most fun holiday we have ever had in our lives!
The owners Claudia & Dietmar treated us like long lost friends!
The cycling was excellent and a must for any cyclist, not for the "softies" though! We climbed 700m one day within 45km's. There was also a 10km climb with an ascent of 900m!
Cycling was arranged on a daily basis with a back-up vehicle. If you didn't feel like cycling anymore, or you had bicycle problems, the vehicle was there to pick you up.
The use of bicycles was included in the package and was of an excellent quality. People that don't cycle can use the elctric bikes that was also available.
We were taken to local restaurants that normal tourists will never see. This included an evening at the Night Market where we danced with the locals and ate & drank from the food they were selling.
The food was excellent, more than ample for our hungry systems, the rooms were well equipped, and staff was more than friendly and helpfull.
The fact that we don't speak French was never a problem.
The surroundings was more than pretty.
