This self-guided cycling break takes you to so many fascinating places in such a short time, and with no challenging hills or distances. You'll discover rich history, unspoilt villages, vineyards, wines and traditional cuisine. Plus you'll feel the enormous satisfaction of having cycled to the Mediterranean. You begin in the vibrant Pink City of Toulouse before gently cycling along the banks of the Canal du Midi discovering villages, churches and castles as you go. One highlight will undoubtedly be the marvellously preserved walled city of Caracassonne. You will cycle along the Mediterranean coast to complete your journey in the historic fishing port of Sète. A truly memorable short break that will appeal to those who already love cycling as well as those who may not be quite so sure! The price of this tour includes three dinners, bed and breakfast accommodation, luggage transfers; bike hire; comprehensive itinerary and directions, including all the maps you'll need and 24/7 English-speaking customer service.
