In 2019 the Tour De France will have an arrival, a rest day and a departure at the beautiful UNESCO town of Albi, just 40 kms from Plaisance. There will be a great vibe at Les Magnolias over these days, with journalists and other interesting cycling enthusiasts already booked in! We have therefore decided not to offer our usual 8-Night Tour De France package in 2019 and instead encourage our cycling friends and clients to come and spend this time at Les Magnolias enjoying the vibe and the cycling… the ride to Albi to watch the arrival and departure events is just 42 kms from Les Magnolias. It is beautiful and can be accompanied by other great cycling routes around Plaisance during this period. We will be around, as always, to provide you with route suggestions and any kind of support required. So why not book to come and spend 5-7 nights with us over these Tour De France days as a self-guided group?
Cool Tour memories from past tours… we promise to be back with the 8-Night program in 2020
