La Velo Francette – the excellent Caen to La Rochelle bike route – passes just 1km from the door of La Fosse B&B on the section between Domfront and Mayenne. The Veloscenie Paris-Mont St Michel also passes just to the north. There are also a number of other voies vertes (greenway routes) in the area for cycling or walking. Louise and Tony, the owners, are up to speed on all this, and offer a friendly welcome to cyclists. They have thought of all the little things that go together to make a perfect cycling B&B. There's a secure cycle and luggage store, a drying line and a variety of tools in case you have a mechanical. They can also arrange baggage transfers and pick your luggage up from your previous hotel/B&B and ferry it on to the next one for you. (They can also pick you and your bike up if you get caught in bad weather or have a problem with your bike). A home-cooked four-course evening meal is available with a bit of notice, while a hearty continental breakfast will wait for you in the morning. La Fosse itself is a lovely granite chambre d'hotes set in 7 acres of a small holding. There are three rooms in various configurations for groups, couples and single riders. Free wifi. French and English spoken. (La Fosse is on our DIY itinerary for Francette).
