5 days by E-Bike and Minibus in the Langhe

3 days by e-bike in the most beautiful areas of these enchanted hills, alternating with 2 days by minibus among tastings and discoveries of unusual places

€ 799

 

A perfect holiday for those who love nature, good food, and the discovery of fascinating places.

We will alternate days by e-bike on the hills of the great wines of this area with days by minibus to taste and visit cellars and cheese producers, and rest a bit our 'legs ... and our bottoms!

During the three days by e-bike we will explore the Moscato hills around Canelli, the Barolo langhe between Alba, Barolo and La Morra, and then the extraordinary area of Barbaresco and Neive. Three different panoramas, three spectacular days, to end with a dip in the pool in summer and a glass on the terrace watching the vineyards in the fall.

With our minibus we will go and visit wineries, taste cheeses, discover villages like Roccaverano, Moasca and Murazzano, less known and very charming corners, letting our agile minibus deal with the twisty narrow roads. Maximum 8 travelers, to travel like a group of friends, we are waiting for you!

5 giorni bici e bus

difficulty level:Easy

Suitable for everyone, you only need to know how to ride a bike and to want to be on the saddle for the day!

Day 1 - E-bike on the Moscato Hills

We will start our journey with an e-bike day on the Moscato hills, in the Canelli area. We will ride on easy trails with a surprising panorama, and at the end of the tour we will visit and taste wine in the famous cathedrals of wine, cellars dug into the rock that offer the wine a perfect environment to age in a sublime way. 

Day 2 - Minibus to Calamandrana, Moasca and Roccaverano

After spending the first day in the saddle, today we will rest, indulging in a visit and testing to a great wine producer, Michele Chiarlo, and then get to know our friend Marco, in Moasca, on his farm where he produces delicious goat cheeses. We will then drive up to the wonderful village of Roccaverano where we'll admire the view from the Saracen Tower and be surprised by the small Church of Bramante.

Day 3 - E-bike in the Barolo langhe

Time to get back in the saddle for a day in the classic Langhe between Barolo, La Morra, Grinzane Cavour, Castiglione Falletto, among geometric hills and vineyards as far as the eye can see. Here the landscape is really like a postcard, and cycling with the e-bike allows us to enjoy priceless views.

Day 4 - Minibus among Dolcetto and Fenoglio

Today we descend towards Dogliani, home of Dolcetto, another Piedmontese wine known all over the world, for a truly extraordinary tasting in the company of a friendly and capable producer, Sergio of Ca 'Noeuva. We will take the time for its famous tasting of 8 wines with tastes of small delicacies of the area, and even those less experienced in wines will enjoy an unforgettable experience thanks to its guidance.

We will then cross the lands told by the italian writer Beppe Fenoglio to Murazzano, a delightful village with spectacular views.

Day 5 - E-bike in the Langhe of Barbaresco

Last day by e-bike, this time in the land of Barbaresco, with again different views and easy and fun roads. For some of our most loyal travelers, this is the most beautiful and surprising ride in our e-bike, and we kept it at the end, to say goodbye with this small marvel.

Lunches are all included, as are activities and tastings. Dinners are not included, because we want our travelers to be free to eat and drink whatever they like, without feeling bound by a menu or a fixed price. Often in the days when we travel by minibus our travelers want to stay light in the evening because of the tastings during the day. Our guide will organise dinner for the group, taking into account their opinions and tastes, and will be present for the evening.

You can use your own e-bike, for these routes a front suspended Mountain Bike is sufficient, or rent one from us at the price of 100 euros for the whole trip, in addition to the cost of the trip.

We want you to be comfortable during the trip while we explore hills and mountains, lakes and villages. So, we looked for something sturdy but elegant, flexible and spacious. For the Minibus tours we use a Fiat Ducato, with room up to 8 travellers plus Alessandro driving. It features:

  • free wifi
  • internal audio system
  • air conditioned (personalized cool and warm air distribution)
  • single seats adjustable backrest angle, padded armrests and 3-point seatbelts
  • modular and flexible configuration
  • high roof so you can stand inside
  • overhead luggage compartments

We also have a smaller and more agile Ford Tourneo, with 9 roomy seats, brand new and with all the same comforts.

We guarantee you will like our minibuses!

Minibus

We want you to savour the best of Italian hospitality, and we are not talking about fake-luxury hotels that all look the same. We will take you to places with character, authentic little B&Bs where you will sleep well and you will taste home made pies for breakfast, mountain lodges with stunning views, or particularly interesting hotels with a story to tell.

All rooms will have private bathrooms, and breakfast is always included.

We will choose for every departure the best solution considering the season and our guests' needs, and we'll send you the complete information via email before the start of the tour.

For example, one of our favourite places is La Ida Bed & Breakfast in Villareggia, our hometown, where our friend Sara, an architect and a painter, welcomes her guests with authentic kindness. 

La Ida

This tour is perfect for solo travellers:

  • we take care of everything
  • you are independent and can choose whether and when to share meals and your free time with the group
  • you get to know people from all around the world in a small group

We'll start with a coffee (yes, real espresso!) or a juice and pastry, get to know the group, and by the time we jump on board and start exploring you'll be among friends.

So, solo travellers are very welcome on our tours, and if you are ok with sharing a double/triple room with other members of the group we'll send you an email after the booking and you will tell us your preferences (e.g. girl ok to share a bedroom with other girls only, etc).

If however you prefer us to book a single room for you, it is available during the reservation process for an additional fee..

If there are no other solo travellers in your tour or if there is no possibility to match your preferences (or your roommates happen to snore too much!), your single room will be on us, no additional charge will be required.

Italian food fits all stomachs. So if you you are a vegetarian, or vegan, or you simply prefer not eat meat, there are plenty of possibilities.

Cereals and vegetables are the basis of the Mediterranean diet, and Piemonte is no exception.

We are the risotto experts (and it's gluten free), our most traditional dish has no meat ("bagna caoda", a delicious garlic and anchovies sauce, served hot with any kind of vegetable),we have dozens of typical kinds of cheese, and pasta with a simple tomato sauce, with crunchy breadcrumbs instead of Parmigiano is a vegan must-try.

Adatto vegetariani e vegani

Booking Policy, from the General Terms and Condition for the Sale of Tour Packages:

3) RESERVATIONS

Acceptance of reservations by Giroola Srl is subject to availability. Reservations will be considered final following confirmation by Giroola Srl,  even via e-mail or fax, to the client.

Indications relative to the tour package not contained in the contract documents, brochures or other forms of written communication, will be supplied in time by Giroola Srl prior to the initial starting date in compliance with its duties as envisaged by Legislative . decree n. 79/2011.

4) PAYMENT

Upon booking, a registration fee and a deposit of 25% of the total amount is required. Full payment is due 30 days prior to departure. For reservations made within 30 days of departure, full payment is due upon booking. Lack of payment of the abovementioned sums on the dates established constitutes grounds for cancellation of reservations such as to determine, on the part of Giroola Srl, the right to terminate the contract.

5) TRANSFER OF CONTRACT

The client renouncing the contract may be substituted by another person provided that:

a) Giroola Srl be given written notice at least 4 weekdays prior to the date of departure, together with the necessary personal data of the transferee;

b) The transferee be able to satisfy all the conditions for the fruition of the service ( ex article 10 of Legislative decree n.111/95) and in particular the requisites relative to passports, visas, health certificates;

c) The transferee refund Giroola Srl for all expenses incurred for the transfer of the contract for the sum specified before the transfer.

Moreover, the transferor and the transferee are both accountable for the payment in full of the tour package price as well as for the sum as per item (c) of the present article.

As far as certain types of services are concerned, third party suppliers have the right to refuse the substitution of the transferee, even if effected within the time limit specified as per item (a) of the present article. Giroola Srl will therefore not be held responsible for the eventual non-acceptance of the substitution on behalf of third parties. This non-acceptance shall be notified in good time by Giroola Srl to the parties involved before departure.

6) WITHDRAWAL

In the event of withdrawing from the tour package contract, the client is, in any case, liable for the payment of the tour package price. If withdrawal takes place for reasons beyond those envisaged in article 7 of the present General Terms, the client shall pay, in compliance with ex article 1373, paragraph III, Italian Civil Code, cancellation penalties as specified below:

  • 10% of the tour package price within 30 days prior to departure
  • 30% of the tour package price from 29 to 18 days prior to departure
  • 50% of the tour package price from 17 to 10 days prior to departure
  • 75% of the tour package price from 9 to 3 weekdays prior to departure
  • 100% of the tour package price beyond these terms.

7) WITHDRAWAL OF CLIENT WITHOUT PENALTY

The client may withdraw from the contract, without incurring any penalty, in the following circumstances:

  • a significant change of one or more elements of the contract which can be objectively considered as fundamental for the fruition of the tour package in its entirety and proposed by Giroola Srl.
  • after the conclusion of the contract itself but prior to departure and not accepted by the client.

In the abovementioned circumstances, the client is entitled to the following options:

  • the fruition of an alternative tour package, with no increase in price or with the restitution of the excess in price, if the second tour package costs less than the first;
  • the restitution of any sum corresponded as partial payment. Said restitution must be made within seven weekdays from receiving the request for reimbursement.

The client must communicate the decision (to accept the change or to withdraw) within two weekdays from receiving notice of the price increase or change. In the absence of specific notice within the said term, the proposal made by Giroola Srl will be considered accepted. The client who decides to withdraw from the contract before departure for circumstances beyond those listed above shall pay, after deducting the account paid as per article 4, the penalty indicated in article 6.

8) TOUR VARIATIONS

Variations to the tour, requested by the client, after the confirmation of booking, could involve processing expenses for Giroola Srl and at times penalties charged by suppliers. If so, the customer will be charged. Partial withdrawal of some of the travellers under the same contract and the resulting decrease in number of tour members is to be considered partial cancellation and is consequently regulated as stated in article 6.

As specified in our General Conditions of Sale of tourist packages, when you travel with Giroola you are covered by our Civil Liability Insurance. For all that could happen and that was due to our negligence or error, we have signed a policy (Reale Mutua Assicurazioni, nr.2007 / 03/2276452).

There are other insurance policies that we recommend and for which we have chosen to work with Allianz Global Assistance, whose Globy range seems to us to be the most suitable for our travelers:

  • TRAVEL CANCELLATION - Our 8-person trips are often full months before the date of travel, and even if our cancellation policy is actually much more flexible than expressed in our Booking Policy (our travelers can attest to this, we are very available to move the trip in case of unexpected even the last minute), where other facilities are involved (hotels, rentals, etc) some expenses are not really refundable, and therefore a good trip cancellation insurance becomes a valuable ally. 
  • ACCIDENT - with a minimum cost you can be insured against accidents. Our civil liability notwithstanding, something can always happen and even a small accident, as in everyday life, can cost dear in terms of rehabilitation, absence from work, etc.  

We at Giroola are an agency of the Globy network of Allianz Global Assistance, and we can therefore provide you with all the information, make estimates and issue the policies directly with the booking.

For any information our Paola is at your disposal at the phone number +39 370 3506333, at the address [email protected] or in the chat directly on this page.
