Just a 10km (mostly) river ride from the La Velo Francette route at Pont-d'Ouilly, Ann's B&B is a lovely stop in one of the most beautiful (and lesser discovered) corners of Normandy. This area was a big favourite of mine when we rode the Francette and it's an area I'd love to go back to. Suisse-Normandie is a beautiful region of rolling hills and river routes for road riders (with easy access to the ferry port at Caen for cross-Channel riders or to Paris in nearby Domfront, where La Veloscenie passes), but there are also some 800km of mountain bike tracks here, making it one of France's MTB hotspots for fun off-road trails without the sharp peaks of the Pyrenees or Alps. Ann is one of those wonderfully bilingual people (French, English, German and Dutch), and she offers a cozy B&B welcome in her 200-year-old village house. Free wifi. What are you waiting for?

La Vélo Francette – La Maison 1833

Stylish and friendly family run B&B south of Domfront

Lieu-Dit La Fosse Roger
61700 Saint-Brice
Orne, Normandy

Price from: €90

Open: All year

View map

We stayed at Maison 1833 when we cycled La Vélo Francette. At the time it had just opened and its potential was clear. It's run by Katherine and Christophe, a well-travelled French couple who have opted for a quieter life after years of international travel and living. The B&B is a short detour from the actual Francette route but it's worth the ride if you're after a spot of homely luxury on your cycling holiday. There are only two rooms, making this is a 'proper' B&B experience (you'll leave half-believing you've known Katherine and Christophe for much longer than the length of your stay). Katherine is a wonderful cook – say 'yes' to her offer of table d'hôtes for a lavish feast to fuel you for a week (though save room for the exceptional breakfast she'll serve up the next day). Free wifi. Katherine and Christophe will also go out of their way to help you plan the next stage of your journey if you need some local advice or support. French and English spoken.
