Châteaux & Sancerre Wine Festival.
7 – 11 June 2019
Our view: A relaxing tour with some good roads as well. Lots of sightseeing – visiting other people’s houses & drinking wine should suit the ladies we know! Three hotels with swimming pools and a day off the bikes. This Tour is really suitable for both riders & pillions alike.
The Sancerre Wine Festival is held each year to celebrate the production of the latest vintage of this famous wine.
On this motorcycle tour you will visit the underground caves where the wine used to be produced and stored. This is where the festival takes place and you can sample the finest wines of the independent vintners.
En route, we will visit the fabulous châteaux of the Loire and Cher regions as shown alongside, giving you plenty of time to explore each one.
This will be a fully escorted bike trip from the moment you arrive at the port of Ouistreham, Caen and will be run at a leisurely / moderate pace. The routes have been extensively researched and as we use a tried & tested “drop-off” marker system with a tail-end rider there is no need for you to refer to road books or maps.
We will stay in small, independent hotels – all have swimming pools – and your luggage will be transported in our back-up van for your comfort. The van will follow the route of the tour and will be available to deposit helmets, jackets etc during the stops.
Please contact us for more details – remember there are limited places on this motorbike holiday and with it being run at a leisurely / moderate pace it will suit couples and riders with pillions.
