    “ La beauté des Pouilles ”

    On the 2018-10-08 by Christine et Christian
    Nous sommes absoliment ravis de notre séjour dans les Pouilles à vélo. L’itinéraire était parfait et avec le GPS, c’était très facile à suivre. Alberobello et Ostuni ont été nos arrêts et hébergements « Coup de coeur ». Le parcours entre Gallipoli-Leucas, Leucas-Ottranto et Ottranto-Lecce est magnifique... quels beaux paysages! La portion de vélo, entre Leucas et Ottranto a été difficile pour moi (Christine) car beaucoup de montées et il pleuvait beaucoup cette journée là, mais je l’ai fait et j’en suis très fière. L’organisation de tous le voyage par Vélo Voyageur était parfaite. Les hôtes ont tous étés très sympathiques. C’était vraiment super!

    “ Une magnifique expérience ”
