    Signature

    We use premium hotels that are unique expressions of the region. Often they’ve had a previous life as a monastery or a castle, but in every case they offer an exceptionally comfortable stay.

    Bistro

    These are stylish 4-star properties that offer a casual and comfortable stay. Often without a 24-hour concierge or room service, they tend to be smaller family-run hotels that are perfect for the region.

Your personal Tour de France

The French Alps first attracted climbers and alpinists in the 1800s, and the peaks and passes of these gorgeous mountains have been challenging cyclists for almost as long. On the Tour de France, this is where reputations are made, as roads veer back and forth over steep grades, and on this trip you’ll ride the same famed terrain, drinking in the outstanding vistas en route. From the famous Annecy Lake to the Semnoz and Aravis mountains, this trip will cover some of the most difficult routes imaginable—and reveal even more breathtaking scenes.

The Traveller

“I do a fair bit of riding at home, and I want to log some miles on trip. I don’t want to miss the historical and cultural stuff, but I also don’t need to be at the spa by 4:00.”

The Terrain

Longer, tougher and hillier terrain. The routes are designed for avid cyclists and include plenty of chances to push yourself.
