CYCLING & ACTIVITY HOLIDAYS
Jess and Mark are keen road cyclists and (as an addition to the gite) offer fully tailored, small and friendly, road cycling holidays for groups of 4-10 people.
The Lot et Garonne has quiet country roads and rolling hills and we believe this makes it especially good for cyclists.
There are river valleys, chateaux and castles, medieval Bastide towns and rural landscapes with agriculture and vineyards.
You can choose some very hilly routes or flatter routes, escorted or fully self-guided,with our favourite shared routes.
Our escorted rides can be tailored to suit a groups abilities and experience.
Guests can bring their own bikes (flying to Bergerac Airport) and we can arrange airport transfers.
We also can arrange hire of quality carbon road bikes and Electric bikes which are ready for guests on arrival.
There is secure bike storage and use of a bike stand and tools plus we can provide recovery assistance and a technician.
Our cycling and activity holidays make use of our beautiful bedrooms in both the Gite and the main farmhouse (a mixture of double and twin rooms), most with en suite, all with access to the beautiful pool.
Guests can choose to be self-catering or can have continental breakfast with a 3 course evening meal, or a mixture of both.
We can also arrange themed party nights such as a BBQ, Paella or traditional French cuisine..
There are many other activities on offer such as Hiking, Tennis, Canoeing, Kayaking, Yoga, Boat Trips and Wine Tasting. A holiday can be fully tailored to your group including any or all of the above activities.
Bespoke holidays can be arranged for 4 or 7 nights.
The nearest airport is Bergerac and airport transfers are available.
Prices are available on request and are dependent on numbers, food choices and activities if required.

Reviews from our Facebook site
"We stayed here for a short stay and had a lovely time. Mark and Jessie make you feel like they have known you for years and are so friendly. The gîte is home from home, immaculate, cosy and comfortable. Mark cooked us a fabulous Thai curry, which we wolfed down.
The pool and gardens are stunning and really peaceful and quiet. There is loads to see in the surrounding area, but if you just want to chill by the pool all day...then you will not be disappointed. We will definitely be back"
