The Fabulous Real Estate Of The Tour De France

Chris Froome and the 2017 Tour de France’s other competitors will enjoy yet another relatively flat route in Stage 7 of the race. Aside from a category-four climb three-quarters of the way through, the 213.5-kilometre route from Troyes to Nuits-Saint-Georges is well-suited to the sprinters.Marcel Kittel won the sprint finish in Stage 6, his second victory in this year’s Tour having also won Stage 2, and his 11th overall. Indeed, it was a largely relaxed day for those competing for the yellow jersey, and Friday could see more of the same given the similarly flat profile of Stage 7 and comparable length of the route.

Key Takeaways:

  • The race does not actually even start in France, it begins in Germany. You can watch the opening time trial from your own château in Dusseldorf.
  • The race travels through the slightly more boring North East of France for the next eight stages, but by Stage 9 it hits the brutal alpine climbs where the race is won
  • The race flies across France after this to the wine regions of the South West, and a flat stage where the sprinters will battle it out at the end for the stage win.

“Here is a selection of fantastic properties that are up for sale on or close to the route of this year’s race.”
