We had a fantastic cycle trip through Umbria run by Petra and Paulo who were extremely helpful and encouraging. The cycling was just delightful - through small villages, past olive groves on quiet country roads. Our accommodation was wonderful as were the meals especially Casa del Aqua. Of course, we managed to get lost but that was part of the adventure. Once we were used to the very detailed directions and we found the arrows at relevant intersections, it was all smooth sailing! Thank you, Petra and Paulo, for a very memorable holiday!

Really excellent self-guided trip run by a first class small operator (Petra and Paulo). Stunning terrain, mostly in Umbria which is quieter and perhaps even more charming than Tuscany. Accommodation was excellent quality and value. Not over-the-top fancy, but great. Breakfasts was good - usual European style. Generally on our own for dinners and so many incredible choices - Umbria has first class food and wine. Luggage transfers perfect. Directions provided excellent. Relatively challenging rides which we expected. At the higher end of level 3. Terrain is hilly (and gorgeous) which isn't an issue where roads are switch-backed. Tougher when they're not but we managed fine. Best to be in decent shape. We're 60 and in good fitness. Winter training via spin classes helpful. Would be more challenging on hybrids - we upgraded to road bikes and were happy we did, riding with our own shoes and clips. Took an extra day in Orvieto which helped give a recovery day and was very interesting/worthwhile. Lots of history and art along the way. Great trip!
