Dates to be listed once the 2015 course has been revealed.
Welcome to France From Inside . I invite you to come and spend a wonderful week biking in the southwest of France while staying at the Chateau de Pitray during the last week of the 2014 Tour of France, the most spectacular professional bike race of the year. This year we will attend stage 19 and 20 at the city of Bergerac in the Dordogne. Here's what else you will enjoy:
Please note bike rentals can be arranged. Please contact me to discuss the details concerning the bikes (approx. 190 Euros for the week).
I've participated in a number of cycling trips with various companies and cycling at Chateau de Pitray has been my best experience to date. First of all, Allan and his family are amazing hosts. They made us feel immediately comfortable, at home and part of their family. Secondly, Chateau de Pitray is magnificent. The building, the rooms and the grounds are beautiful. My wife, who is a professional artist, was so inspired that she created 11 oil painting in the week we stayed there. That's what Pitray will do to you. Third, the food and wine is exquisite. The meals we enjoyed at the Chateau and local restaurants were wonderful. The winery tours and tasting's were fun, interesting and added to the overall experience.
The town of St. Emilion is not to be missed. Most importantly, the week was about an amazing cycling experience. Allan mapped and led long guided rides every day, being flexible with how our small group was feeling. We toured through the beautiful countryside and medieval towns, often stopping for coffee and baked goods. We had challenging climbs and long stretches along the along the Dordogne river. The weather was ideal, which helped create the perfect cycling and vacation experience. I would highly recommend cycling at Chateau de Pitray during the Wine Harvest ! Sandy and I will return there soon. Thank you Allan.
