Fancy cycling in the "green heart" of France"? That's what they call the relatively undiscovered area of the Creuse, part of the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region (formerly the Limousin). There's much to explore in this quiet and peaceful corner of rural France – and Villa Vallière is a perfect base. It's in the small village of Vallière, just west of Aubusson and the official La Véloroute Est Creuse bike route, making it an ideal stop on that long-distance route, or a good base for a few days of fixed base pottering. The spacious villa-style house was formerly a girls' school built in 1892. Each of the rooms is named after a girl in honour of the building's heritage, and there's also a wonderful, extensive library housed in antique bookcases that hark back to the villa's days as a place of education. All the creature comforts are here after a day on the bike, including spacious rooms complete with king-sized beds and tea and coffee-making facilities (whch can be hard to find in rural France!) In addition to hearty breakfasts made with local produce, there's also a four-course evening table d'hôtes meal four nights a week, which you can share with the multilingual owners, John, Annemieke and Anita – English, French, German and Dutch are all spoken here. There's also free wifi and safe and secure bike parking.
