Cycling Holidays France - Cycle to Villandry

Self Catering Cycling Holidays

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

Our self-catered cycling holiday option is great if you have your own car transport and want flexibility to mix cycling with car-based sight-seeing. The self-catered cycling holiday option is also a brilliant way to create a family cycling holiday with younger children.

You can choose from three properties.

Le Noyer is owned by Loire Life Cycling and located at our cycling base, Le Gué de Ray.

Due to demand, we have partnered with the owners of two more properties, L’Ancienne Cure and Le Pont Roger in the adjacent village of Breil.

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

Rent Le Noyer and you will have access to our entire cycle route catalogue, offering rides from 15kms to over 100kms in length.

Rent L’Ancienne Cure or Le Pont Roger and we provide a folder detailing the  local marked cycle routes 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!

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.
