Flexible, self-guided cycling holidays based at Le Moulin du Chemin, a small private auberge in the Poitou-Charentes region of western France. Cycling holidays at Le Moulin are notable for idyllic surroundings, excellent food and wine, lovely accommodation and great bonhomie – all at a reasonable price. Everything is included: accommodation, all meals and drinks, the hire of well-maintained, fully-equipped touring bikes, plus the use of the pool and other amenities. (Even the postcards are free.) There are hundreds of miles of little-used country lanes that undulate beside pastures, woods and orchards. Bikes roll easily on well-maintained roads, with hardly any traffic. To guide you, clear route-notes and highlighted maps are provided in a personalised dossier, with friendly advice and information from your hosts, Peter and Carolynne. Choose from easy, moderate (or, if you wish, challenging) routes, with different destinations each day. Finish the day with aperitifs-at-seven, followed by a four-course evening meal with wonderful food and generous supplies of excellent wine – all enjoyed in a leisurely atmosphere.
All accommodation has been checked to ensure it meets our cycle-friendly criteria. We also deal with tour operators personally before adding them to the site. To recommend a great French cycling holiday or a nice bike-friendly place to stay, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
