A group of 6 friends who are not really sporty decided to challenge themselves to discover the Entre-deux-Mers by bike. Velstana created a 6-day trip suited to their rhythm and their desire to visit the castles and vineyards of the region.
At the appointed time, Stanislas called us and we built our circuit together in a little over half an hour. He asked us the right questions while letting us express our desires, we already felt as if we were there!
We chose to leave at the beginning of July for 6 days with stages of around 50 km per day and few slopes, two of us having even chosen an electric bike to ride even more comfortably!
We asked Velstana to base our tour around two themes: castles and wine discovery.
Stanislas advised us a loop tour by changing locations every day to explore the region as well as possible, as the stages were not difficult.
For the accommodation, we wanted very good quality services in guest rooms or charming hotels.
In the evening, determined to have a really enjoyable holiday, we asked our organizer to select high-quality addresses if possible for our accommodation, and, the icing on the cake, an exceptional gourmet restaurant in the middle of the holiday!
We finalized the creation of our tour by planning the first day without a bike in Bordeaux, during which Velstana booked us a visit and an unusual surprise dinner.
The following week, we received the description of the trip designed and its price by e-mail: everything was in line with what had been agreed, so we approved the quote. The last step before departure: we paid the deposit.
Two weeks before departure, we received a comprehensive Travel Book via e-mail with the complete itinerary and many other things, such as information on the route, travel advice and suggestions on typical restaurants and local cuisine.
A link received by e-mail enabled us to have the route on our smartphone, very easy and convenient to follow.
