ORGANIZED BIKE TOUR AND WINE TASTING !
WITH FLORIAN FROM “BOURGOGNE EVASION”
I know, you will immediately think that cycling and wine tasting are not compatible…or that cycling is too hard for your perception of what should be a holiday.
But I can tell that this concept is really great fun guaranteed and open to “softies” :-) ! For the full day trip, the trick is that the minibus takes you to the top of a hill, so the ride is going down all the time…easy !
FLORIAN, YOUR BIKING AND WINE TASTING EXPERT GUIDE
Florian is an official cycling guide. He has a very good knowledge of the area and a passion for our region of Burgundy. Florian speaks very good English. He is a very friendly and helpful person and his cheerfulness will contribute to make your day great fun! Florian has a very good knowledge of Burgundy wines and wine tasting, so he will be also a good guide during wine cellar stops.
He prepared these bikes and wine tasting excursions especially for our guests, and he has a mini-bus to transport you from your Kasteliades Château to the cycling destination.
Since Florian accompanies his tours personally, there is no room for more than one group per day. This full day trip is very successful so we advise you to book several months in advance if possible. You benefit anyway from a “SUN GUARANTEE”. If the days before the planned trip there is a rainy weather forecast, then the trip will be either changed to another day or cancelled with absolutely no costs for you.
CHILDREN / TEENAGERS
Children are allowed from the age of 10. Specific bicycles are available for them. A discount of 10% on the adult price is granted to children and teenagers between the age of 10 and 16 included.

Each year, during the 3rd weekend in July (from the Thursday evening until Sunday evening), the streets of Chalon-sur-Saône are transformed into the stage of a multitude of live performances (jugglers, plays, concerts, acrobats,circus acts etc) during the biggest festival of street theatre in France.
From Chalon-sur-Saône to Charnay-les-Macon tens of kilometres of old railway track have been converted into a cycle track. Surrounded by rolling landscapes, alternating between vineyards and forest, this flat (or almost !) Green Way, lends itself perfectly to cycling or rollerblading or simply walking ! The track goes through several attractive villages and you can also admire sites such as Cluny and Cormatin from it.
