The area around La Grue Gites offers beautiful, undulating cycling countryside among the vineyards and sunflowers of the Charente sunflowers. Situated on the Boucle 33 cycling route (PDF download here) and only five minutes from the market town of Aigre (about 30km northish of Angouleme), Carol and Martin are ideally placed to host cyclists of all ages and abilities. They have 3 gites, sleeping 2, 4 and 6 people, plus a large heated pool for post-ride relaxation. Martin is a keen cyclist and often rides out with guests to share local routes. He's a member of the local Charente Wheeler group, so he's more than familiar with routes taking in areas such as Cognac (37km), Tusson (12km), Saintes (58km) and generally wherever there’s coffee, cake and beer on offer! Bikes can be hired locally and delivered to the door. English and French spoken with a small amount of Spanish and German.
