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.

Club Correze is in the Parc Naturel Régional de Millevaches en Limousin south-east of Limoges. It offers affordable hostel-style accommodation for groups, families and touring cyclists. The centre operates as an outdoors recreation centre for schools, sports groups and family breaks, and its owner, Clare, is keen to welcome more cyclists. There are marked mountain bike routes from the door, as well as quiet (mostly) car-free routes on quiet backroads for road riders. Choose from B&B option, or take Clare's full-board option with evening meals and packed lunches. This is one of France's quieter corners for cycling, with much of the Correze under-explored and free of traffic, making it an ideal base for either a longer stay or an overnight stop. From here there are good routes over to the coast, down to the Dordogne or north towards the Loire. Mountain bike hire available onsite, with hybrids and road bikes available locally. Free wifi. French and English spoken.
