Caen to Nice

Postby binsted » 4 Jul 2015, 10:22am

I notice a few of the tour companies do a Caen to Nice trip to include Mt Ventoux. I am thinking of this trip but with Mrs B in the camper van for accommodation so wondering if anybody has a route map, downloadable .gpx file of the route and/or advice of what to see and what to avoid.

Buy the "France en Velo" book (it's in English!) as reviewed in CTC magazine. It goes from St Malo to Nice starting from where you get off the ferry. The ferry is overnight so you set off at 8AM.
