Has the Tour de France been on your bucket list but you just haven’t checked that box yet? If so, this is one of the best years to see the mountains – vineyards and finish all in one week. We’re taking just 8 lucky guests this year to the Tour de France to give both a close-up view and epic experience.
Take a direct flight to Paris and a quick flight to Toulouse. From there, we’ll pick you up and take care of the rest. Our goal is to fulfill the rides and wines you’ve had on your French “must do” list.

Founded in 1848, the Logis de la Cadène, one of the oldest restaurants in Saint-Emilion, has over time become a veritable institution popular with both passing visitors and locals. This family place intimately linked to the history of the city seduced the family of Boüard de Laforest, installed in the nearby Château Angélus since 1782, who acquired it in the summer of 2013. In the spring of 2016, the de Boüard de Laforest family inaugurated “La Maison de la Cadène”, a beautiful 17th-century residence.
