Thouars - Hotel de la Gare

Accueil velo hotel on Velo Francette route from La Rochelle and Caen

1 Place de la Gare
79100 Thouars
Deux-Sèvres, Poitou-Charentes (Nouvelle-Aquitaine)

View map

Price from: €64

Open: All year

Hotel de la Gare in Thouars offers clean and well-equipped accommodation near the train station. It has an accuiel velo rating and is used to receiving cyclists. This place is ideal if you are cycling the Velo Francette route which runs from Caen to La Rochelle. In fact we stayed here when we cycled the Francette and found it a welcome stop after a rainy day of mud and punctures. We arrived late and very wet to be met by the owner, Monsieur Galas, who took a soggy bag of cycling clothes, washed them and returned them smelling like roses the next morning. Bike parking was enclosed within the hotel garage (pictured here).

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).

ViaRhôna - Hôtel de la Villeon

Upmarket 4-star hotel on the EuroVelo 17 route

2 rue Davity
07300 Tournon-sur-Rhône
Ardèche, Rhône-Alpes

View map

Price from: €119

Open: All year

Rather plush hotel not far from the banks of the Rhone. The manager has been in touch and says they regularly welcome cyclists and they are keen to see more. Hôtel de la Villeon has all the bells and whistles you'd expect of a 4-star hotel – it's furnished throughout with some amazing pieces and each room is beautifully presented (plus you get free toiletries and slippers). There's an onsite bar that opens to a courtyard garden, plus a further 2000m² of gardens that overlook the river Rhone and the nearby Hermitage vineyards. Yet despite its luxurious and palatial feel, it's still quite intimate with just 16 rooms. Free wifi and 24-hour reception for late arrivals. A stay here really would add a touch of luxury to your French bike ride!

This cosy B&B is a good stop for anyone travelling along the Via Rhona. It sits in an old stone building near where the Rhone River meets the Savières Canal.

There's a private garage to safely store bicycles. The rooms also have their own kettles, a big plus if you enjoy a brew in your room (and still quite unusual for a French B&B).
