1 nights - 2 days riding - 9 course dinner with pairing of wines - 250-290km
After the huge success of our Valencian Gourmet Tour this April we are delighted to launch our Gourmet Taster.
This is a 2 day tour including fully sported rides with one nights accommodation in the stunning 4 star Hotel Mont-Sant in Xàtiva and their 9 course tasting menu with pairing of wines.
Day 1 - 145km 2,800m Departing Lliber for a ride up the Jalón Valley and onwards to Alcoy, ´The City of Bridges` before crossing the Sierra Mariola Natural Park to the spectacular medievil hilltop town of Bocairent. We'll stop here for lunch before heading north taking on some of the incredible roads used in the La Vuelta. The final run-in reveals the the historic and fortified town of Xàtiva. Our hotel is situated in lush gardens just below the castle wall in a converted monastery. The weather this time of year should be warm enough for us to sit on the terrace and enjoy the mouth watering 9 course gourmet tasting menu with carefully selelcted pairing of wines.
Day 2 - 105-135km 1,900-2,700m After breakfast in the hotel, we head through the city and then the orange groves before a café stop outside the Monastery of Santa María de la Valldigna before taking on the Simat-Barx climb's hairpin ascent with its coastal views. We´ll then take a scenic route back to Lliber with a lunch stop half way.
