There can't be many bases more perfect for cycling than Chris and Charles' idyllic 18th century manoir halfway between Rennes and Angers. The beautifully restored and decorated Le Manoir de la Vieille Douve sits at several cycling crossroads, easily reached from the Loire bike route as well as from the Caen-La Rochelle La Velo Francette, which passes through Le Lion-d'Angers just to the south-east. It's also ideally located for riders heading to the Vendee or further south to Bordeaux. Chris and Charles are geared up for cyclists with a locked garage for secure storage and hearty cyclists' breakfasts each morning (they also offer evening meals if you let them know in advance). English and French spoken. Free wifi.
