I've been running Freewheeling France for more than seven years and, in that time, there has been one email that intermittently pops into my inbox: "I'm arriving into/passing through/leaving from Paris. Where can I safely store my bike/bike box?" Now I have a very good answer: Hotel de La Porte Dorée is in the 12th arrondissement, near the glorious Bois de Vincennes park and forest, on the Metro line to the Eiffel Tower, and close to Gare de Paris Bercy and Paris Gare de Lyon (for trains from Burgundy/Dijon and Lyon Part Dieu); by bike, you can get here from Gare du Nord or Montparnasse in under half an hour; the EuroVelo 3 route passes nearby. The hotel is owned by Laurent and Christina, a Franco-US team who cycle to work having dropped their three kids off at school en route. It's a certified eco-friendly hotel with a small fleet of hotel bikes. There's a large basement storage room for bikes and bike boxes (though they can also be taken to your room if you prefer). There's also a courtyard for daytime storage. If you're starting your trip in Paris before heading off elsewhere, they're even happy to store your bike box until you get back. Great breakfasts, free wifi. This is without a doubt top-of-the-list if you need somewhere to stay with your bike in Paris.

Saint-Germain-en-Laye - Le Château Du Val

Quaint chateau-style hotel to the west of Paris

Route Forestière des Brancas
78100 Saint-Germain-en-Laye
Yvelines, Île-de-France

View map

Price from: €78

Open: All year

Recommended to us by readers, Le Château Du Val sits by the River Seine to the west of Paris. It's handy for both the Epte Valley route to Le Havre and the London to Paris Avenue Verte, making it a useful stopover at the start of your journey or as your last night before arriving in Paris. The small chateau has clean rooms with breakfast being served in a Louis XIV-styled state room. And an interesting local fact for you: if you were wondering where the Saint-Germain of famous football club Paris-Saint Germain comes from, then it is in fact from this small town's football club, which merged with Paris in 1970. Anyway back to cycling, this is a great base and the owners will happily store bikes safely away overnight in the locked garage.

Hôtel Le Versailles is mere metres from the famous palace after which it's named. If you're lucky, you may even be able to see France's most famous royal residence from your bedroom window (or on the walls, given the hotel is themed throughout to align with its chateau neighbour). The hotel is perfect for daytrippers from Paris, as well as anyone en route to Mont St-Michel on the Veloscenic route – the bike path starts nearby. Super cyclists' breakfasts with Continental options plus beef sausages and scrambled eggs. There's a bike rack outside and staff can arrange a secure place inside the hotel for your bike. Free wifi.
