Spend a night in fascinating Matera, Italy’s oldest settlement, before embarking on a cycling tour of Puglia, the heel of Italy. See the charming Trulli houses in Alberobello and visit the white city of Ostuni. Ride along blissfully quiet, picturesque lanes, flanked by ancient olive groves, orchards and wheat fields. See both the Ionian and Adriatic coasts and marvel at the baroque splendour of Lecce.
Coastal Cycling Holidays
Our coastal cycling holidays are all about riding along beautiful coastlines enjoying sea views, lovely beaches, swimming breaks and exploring charming little ports and coastal villages.
Some routes follow the rugged Atlantic coasts of France, Spain and Portugal while others trace the more tranquil shoreline of the Mediterranean in Croatia, Italy, France and Spain. All offer sea views galore and lung fulls of fresh sea air.
Stopping at a gorgeous beach for a cooling mid-ride dip is one of the many appealing treats of these rides as is coming across that perfect little seafood restaurant with a table just waiting for you in the shade.
Some of our coastal holidays are also cycle cruising holidays, meaning you stay on board a motor yacht, complete with crew, and cruise to a different port or island each day, disembarking for wonderful rides through stunning scenery.
