Self Catering Cycling Holidays

Rent a fantastic holiday cottage, hire a bike and explore to your own schedule


A self-catered cycling holiday is a great option for cyclists who are happy to do their own planning and want the maximum in flexibility. It’s also a brilliant way to create cycling holidays for families!

Remember, if you don’t want to worry about planning your day, you need back-up support, access to the best bespoke cycle routes in the Loire Valley, end of route mini-bus pickups and great catering, then you need to join us on our Loire Valley Cycling Tours or Short Cycling Breaks !

The Cycling

There are marked cycle routes easily accessed from all of our accommodation and maps are provided in each cottage as well as plenty of hints and tips on other routes and attractions.

The cycle routes are well marked and use quiet roads and countryside tracks, giving easy access to local beauty spots and Chateaux.

If you’ve a car and bike rack then take our advice on great places to use as jump off points for circular routes further afield – perhaps a drive down to the Loire River to cycle sections of the Loire a Velo cycle path…. Happy planning!

Bike Hire

We can deliver hire bikes to your accommodation and collect them at the end of the week – no hassle! Each bike comes with a combination lock, bike pump and a puncture repair kit or spare inner tube and tyre levers.

Contact us for bike hire details.

The Holiday Cottages

In 2020 we have three holiday cottages to choose from.

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.
