In July 2008 the Tour de France celebrates its 95th year and passes through the regions we have properties in...


Le Tour de France is the most prestigious bike race in the world. Running from 5 to 27 July 2008, the 95th Tour is made up of 21 stages   and covers a total distance of 3,500 km. It starts in Brittany in Brest and finishes, as usual, in  Paris riding up the Champs Elysees. While the Tour last year took a detour through London,   this year it ventures briefly into Italy. Next year, the Tour starts in the principality of Monaco.

This year Le Tour passes through both our regions  of Pays de Loire and Vaucluse in Provence. The race is running only 20 minutes away from our town of Pouzauges on 7 July and less than 20km away from our new place in Isle sur la Sorgue on 19 July. In addition, our recent tour of southwest France went through many of the same towns the Tour will be going through including Preuilly-sur-Claise, Thouars, Loudun, Richelieu bonne route!
