Price from: €70 to €85

Open: All year

It's always a good sign when a B&B owner emails to provide some small snippet of information about a local bike route. That's how I found out that Jacie's Numéro CINQ B&B at the crossroads of two major national bike routes: Veloscenie Paris to Mont St Michel and the splendid Velo Francette from Caen to La RochelleNuméro CINQ is wonderfully set up for cyclists: dusters and rags are available to clean down baggage and bikes, hot or cold drinks are offered on arrival, and there's an SOS collection service offered within 20km for punctured or broken down bikers. The B&B is just a two-minute walk from the Medieval Domfront town centre and its bars and restaurants. English and French spoken. For anyone wanting a break from long-distance riding, there's lots of beautiful local cycling on offer if you fancy a fixed base for a few days (think small local roads, farmland, and apple and pear orchards). For those with a car, it's a 40-minute drive from Mayenne or half an hour into the Suisse-Normandie for hillier rides.

The nearest 'big' town is the medieval bastide of Ste Foy La Grande, which has a wonderful Saturday morning market that had been voted the best market in France. Peyrail B&B is a short and worthy detour for anyone cycling the Dordogne River route from Bordeaux to Sarlat via Bergerac.

It's one of France's newest and more interesting rural bike routes, and passes through the vineyards of Cognac, among other highlights. Les Chambres de l'Abbaye is a special place to stay. This old convent building dates to the 11th century and has been lovingly restored. It's now a hotel and function centre but that's only half the story, with the abbey also still holding musical festivals and recitals in tune with its wonderful past. It's also accueil velo-accredited and has its own bike section on the website. Arriving by bike here somehow seems fitting. There is even a wonderful, safe and secure bike storage area in the convent's old cellar. We have included this hotel on our DIY cycling itinerary for La Flow Velo. ** Read our review **.

B&B Aux Vieilles Pierres was recommended to us by cyclists who stayed here. They report that it's a typical French B&B with friendly owners and the added bonuses of a heated indoor swimming pool and sauna. It's handy for the Avenue Verte London to Paris bike route and also close to the Seine Valley bike route that links Paris to the ferry port in Le Havre. It's also an ideal stop for Monet's garden at Giverny, 10km away – close enough to ensure you can be there bright and early before the tour buses arrive but far enough away to avoid the worst of the crowds if you're staying on afterwards. This is a good last stop before/first stop from the outskirts of Paris.
