Logis Hotel Lafayette a warm and welcoming bike-friendly hotel in the Rochefort town centre, just a short walk from the maritime museum and the famed Hermione frigate. The hotel is owned by cyclists (we parked our bikes in the garage with their bikes), and has accueil velo accreditation through the tourist board. As with most French hotels that aren't B&Bs, breaksfast costs extra (it's big enough to power a day on the bike). Wifi is fast and free (I'm writing this from the hotel), and the rooms are clean and comfortable. This is a great mid-range option for anyone cycling through Rochefort. (I'll post a full review here soon). ** We've stayed here – read our review. **

Rochefort-sur-Nenon - Hotel Fernoux-Coutenet

Family run hotel-restaurant on the EuroVelo 6 bike route

Rue Barbière
39700 Rochefort-sur-Nenon
Jura, Franche-Comté

Price from: €76

Open: All year

View map

On EuroVelo 6, Hotel Fernoux-Coutenet is used to welcoming cyclists (the hotel is part of the Logis group and it meets the group's bike-friendly standards). Rochefort-sur-Nenon is a lovely stop for cycling – it's a fortified village near the Doubs river. The Chaux forest neighbours the village, providing a peaceful space for walks and rides. The building itself dates back to 1857, and still carries much of this old charm, though the rooms themselves and the decor are quiet basic. Buffet breakfast (I'm told it's 'big'). The hotel has its own bar (for tasting the wines from neighbouring Burgundy), as well as its own restaurant, which serves local menus prepared with local produce. Free wifi.

Seriously! Who wouldn't want to ride their bike down this driveway? Le Manoir du Butel is a farmhouse B&B run by cyclists near Saint-Armand, east of the Tour du Manche route at Le Mesnil-Raoult (17km south-east of St-Lo). The French owners tell us that they regularly welcome touring cyclists and that they are indeed cyclists themselves (MTB riders). They will be able to help with local routes etc. The B&B is around 4km from the nearest large town with a restaurant, but the owners say they are happy to take you there if your legs aren't up to the task after a day on the bike. What more could you want?!
