Guided cycling holidays

Does anyone have recommendations for guided cycling holidays? I will have a week to 10 days to spare in July and would like to use it cycling somewhere in Europe.

Thoughts so far:

  • Guided and catered - I do not want to have to think much about navigation or food or carry luggage.
  • Don't mind if it's a tour or a series of rides from a fixed base.
  • Not too hot - I function best below about 25 degrees.
  • Need to find something about right for my (lack of) ability - my rides are mostly about 80-90 km at about 22-24 km/h with 750-1000 m of elevation.
  • A bit of climbing is welcome but I'm not looking to tick off famous climbs - no Stelvio or Tourmalet needed: 15% gradients are about my limit unless a special occasion.
  • Bike provided if possible - I don't want to stress about arriving with a broken bike.

I was thinking that Brittany might be suitable and wonder if anyone can recommend an operator there, or something similar. I'd consider going to less warm places too for the right experience.
