The fashionable metropole of Nice - creative, dynamic and young - is the epitome of sunny France. Hyères, the peninsula Giens and the gold island Porquerolles are a very special insider tip. During your bike tours you will discover medieval towns, romantic, small fishing villages and dreamy bays surrounded by the turquoise blue sea. You'll stay in Hyeres-Plages for 4 nights and in Nice for 3 nights.
TOUR PROFILE: Easy and short cycling stages, all on asphalted cycle paths or side roads. Rarely contact with traffic. The daily cycle routes can be individually extended or abbreviated.
Individual arrival (airport Nice or Marseille, good train connection with the TGV to Toulon/Hyères). Your hotel is located in Hyères-Plage, close to the beach.
The medieval old town with its narrow alleys and colourful houses is small, charming and typically French. A special highlight is the Villa Noailles (Bauhaus), from the castle ruin you can enjoy a fantastic view. Alternatively all sporty cyclists can cycle through the lonely / hilly hinterland on tiny roads to the small village of Pierrefeu in the middle of the "Côte de Provence" wine growing area and through endless vineyards back to Hyères.
May we take you to paradise? Passing flaming colonies you cycle to the boat station and transfer to the dream island Porquerolles. The island is car-free, characterized by olive plantations, vineyards and romantic bays with white sandy beaches. Worth seeing are the Plage de Notre Dame, the fort and the Lighthouse.
On well-developed cycle paths you cycle over the old salt works, past vineyards and olive groves - the sea within a few meters - to the fishing village Le Lavandou, at the foot of the Moorish massif. With a little perseverance or by e-bike, a detour to Bormes-les-Mimosas, famous for its panorama and the old town, is worthwhile.
Today you will not only change your hotel, your will find yourself in a whole new world. From the unspoilt coast you travel by train (included) to the capital of the Côte d’Azur. Nice awaits you with its old town, fashionable buildings and numerous museums.
In the morning you have the opportunity to take part in an interesting city tour by bike (optional) or you can take the time to enjoy the city by bike. Explore Nice and its museums on your own. The Principality of Monaco is only 25 minutes away by train.
The famous Promenade des Anglais takes you along the Mediterranean coast to Antibes. The small town of Greek origin is not only well known for its marina, but also for the Old Town and the Picasso Museum. Surround the Cap d’Antibes with its botanical garden, where the High Society owns its holiday villas.
At the end of your cycle trip you can stock up on Provençal specialities at the famous market Cours Saleya and drink a café au lait before you start your return journey. It is also a good idea to extend the trip - Nice and the surrounding area still have a lot to offer. Individual departure or extension.
