Saumur – Le Londres Hôtel & Appartements

Bright and friendly bike-friendly hotel in Loire Valley hotspot

48 rue d'Orléans
49400 Saumur
Maine-et-Loire, Pays de la Loire

View map

Price from: €72

Open: All year

We stayed here on our La Velo Francette bike ride and it's a great base either for a night or for an extended stay (it has hotel rooms as well as self-catering apartments). The staff were super friendly and didn't blink an eye when two smelly, sweaty cyclists arrived later than expected. It's located in the heart of Saumur, as short walk/ride from the Loire River. Breakfast was one of the best we had on the ride with a huge buffet with breads, cereals, eggs, fruits and yoghurts from which to choose. Bike storage was the most secure we had all trip with bikes locked in a private garage at the rear of the hotel, with the garage courtyard also acccessed by code. The hotel also carries the French Accueil Velo mark. Free wifi (plus computers for guest use are also available). It's family friendly with toys and books etc available for kids. Beds were comfy, showers were hot, the hotel itself was bright and clean – an ideal place to stay.

Vacherauville - Logis Hotel Restaurant Le Relais

Hotel conveniently located for sightseeing around the Verdun battlefields

6 Rue du Colonel Driant
55100 Vacherauville
Meuse, Lorraine (Grand Est)

View map

Price from: €70

Open: All year

Close to the EuroVelo 19 Meuse cycle route and the voie verte, Logis Hotel Restaurant Le Relais is conveniently located for sightseeing around the Verdun battlefields. The hotel has an automated check-in outside core hours, and inside it’s clean and bright. There was a little patch of lawn, a hedge and some garden chairs behind our room – somewhere to relax in the sun and rig up a washing line to dry our cycling clothes. We locked our bikes to the window box, but there’s a small garage too. The rooms have a kettle for tea and coffee (still not that common for low and mid-range hotels in France).
