Self Catering Cycling Holidays in France

A cycling holiday in France where you bring (or hire) the bike and the food and we'll provide fantastic accommodation. The route planning is all up to you!

Self Catering Cycling Holidays in France

Rent our beautiful french country cottage and explore the Loire Valley by bike using the marked Loire Valley cycle routes in the area.

In the cottage, you’ll find maps for the most local cycle routes and lots of hints and tips for cycle routes further afield.  This cycling holiday is perfect for travellers with their own car transport and who want the flexibility a self catering holiday offers.  On this cycling holiday, people usually bring their own bikes, but adult bike hire is available – just ask us for details.

We can recommend the cycle routes around the lake and end in Parcay les Pins for omelette!  Cycle from Montsoreau to Saumur as per note from hosts - full of unique surprises - a must do!   The gite is lovely and the welcome wine very much appreciated.

This was a wonderful spot to cycle all the lovely back roads and explore the beauty of the Loire Valley!  Great accomodations and the Barn Owl was super!"

Karen & Don, California, USA

Enjoyed cycling on such quiet roads.  Market at Bourgueil worth a visit - Many Thanks!
