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 was the sort of owner we all needed to know more about. Her Numéro CINQ B&B is at the crossroads of two major national bike routes: Veloscenie Paris to Mont St Michel and the splendid Velo Francette from Caen to La Rochelle. And that's not even the best bit. Jacie's B&B 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 (Jacie's hubby permitting!) The B&B is just a two-minute walk from the Medieval Domfront town centre and its bars and restaurants (Jacie can make recommendations and reservations if needed). 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. Bookings via the link below or by direct email/phone.
