Bordeaux & St Emilion

Gironde’s vineyards, rivers & valleys
 
This Holiday in a nutshell
  • self-guided hotel-to-hotel cycling, luggage transported
  • start and finish in elegant Bordeaux
  • cycle-friendly area, with leisurely routes
  • many wine-tasting opportunities in and around the historic villages

Between the Dordogne and the Garonne, the two rivers which flow into the broad Gironde Estuary just north of Bordeaux, the misleadingly named Entre-Deux-Mers (‘Between Two Seas’) area produces world-renowned wines which are the perfect accompaniment to the fine gastronomy of south-west France. Nowadays, tranquillity reigns over this beguiling region, but the fortified stone villages (bastides) scattered across the varied, gently undulating landscape are testament to a more turbulent era, when ownership of the land was contested by the French and English during the Hundred Years War.

You don’t have to be interested in wine to choose Entre-Deux-Mers for your cycling holiday. The pretty villages and bucolic landscapes are enough of a draw in their own right.
     

Starting in Bordeaux, capital of the French wine trade, this captivating holiday explores the area to the east – including famous St Emilion – before returning to this elegant, cycle-friendly city for a final night. As you would expect, there are numerous vineyards along each day’s route where you can call in for tastings, but, equally, this holiday is about visiting handsome villages with rich, colourful histories.
