We had a brilliant week...
Excellent organisation – everyone was expecting us! – very good directions by the km, wonderful luxury (and quirky) hotels and the most fantastic restaurants.
Highlights of the trip include: Cycling through the Camargue – we saw bulls, white horses and flamingos, Hostellerie Provencal in Uzes – where even our bikes had an ensuite room!! The host was fantastic and there was the most amazing art on every wall, the variety of cycling – mostly along very quiet roads but sometimes flat and sometimes hilly – brilliant routes with lots of vineyards, towns and sightseeing, Hotel d’Image, St Remy – spectacularly smart hotel and grounds with 2 nights of amazing food and service to match.
Bags always arrived before us – even when there was a last minute hotel change. Perfect service and help from Kay Cliffe!
Using Skedaddle again soon...
The instructions were clear and easy to follow. Overall the holiday was excellent – and I really have no complaints whatsoever. Everything worked extremely well and everyone was very helpful and welcoming. It’s difficult to see how it could have been bettered – and I would happily recommend Skedaddle to family and friends – and, indeed, to use the company again myself.
A real sense of achievement...
I was very unfit and not a cyclist prior to signing up for this. I started training at the gym in March and was therefore nervous that I would be ill prepared. When we set off on the first day with the blazing heat and two hours of cycling behind me, I knew there was a hill looming. Climbing the 5km hill between Orange and Uzes was the pinnacle of my achievements and I am so proud that I managed it. I now half calf muscles which I have never seen before!
The accommodation was excellent, and Charlotte, the Skedaddle representative was extremely helpful throughout!
The accommodation was excellent and the half-board options worked well. I am a vegetarian and I was offered great food. The pre-trip information was very good, and everyone was very friendly and helpful.
All the accommodation was really nice and in great locations. We got upgraded in one hotel, which was really nice. The luggage was always at the accommodation when we arrived and always in good condition.

Everything was catered for by Kay and it was lovely to be called the morning before to have any last minute questions answered.
