Le Versailles ***

This trip is based in a *** hotel, about 200m from the seafront, while being well situated to head out into the quiet roads north of Nice. The hotel is in an ideal location in the atmospheric port of Villefrance-sur-Mer, with spacious contemporary rooms and view to the bright blue sea.

We cater for all dietary requirements and ask guests to let us know their preferences before arrival.

The Velusso cycling holiday experience is for enthusiastic cyclists who enjoy having fun both on and off the bike. Riding with experienced Ride Leaders is the ideal way to explore new destinations.

There will always be a range of fitness levels and riding abilities within a group. Our Ride Leader will ensure that we accommodate these differences in our route planning, as best as possible. Nobody will be left behind, and groups will always reform at the top of climbs, as well as riding together at a steady pace on the flats.

Certain trips are more suitable for experience riders, whereas others are perfect for beginners. This is indicated by the difficulty rating in the Overview tab on each trip page. Ask our team for more details of which trip may be best for your riding level.
