Cycling Holidays in France

The great thing about France is the variation in locations on offer. The bays of Brittany provide gentle, flat pedalling along quiet coastal and country lanes, ideal for family cycling holidays in France. The Emerald coast is more varied and enjoys an architectural mix of Roman, Romanesque and Gothic along its coastal scenery.

For a great, active and exciting holiday in France, cycling breaks really deliver. See both towns and rural areas from a new perspective and really connect with the fantastic locations and mountain scenery as you climb and freewheel through France.

Whether you are a young and athletic couple looking for a challenge in the mountains or a large family after gentler routes, there will be a location for you. The bays of Brittany provide gentle, flat pedalling along quiet coastal and country lanes, ideal for family cycling holidays in France. The Emerald coast is more varied and enjoys an architectural mix of Roman, Romanesque and Gothic along its fantastic coastal scenery. Poitou Charentes is rural France at its best with breathtaking countryside, quaint villages and sunflower fields. This area is a paradise for nature lovers and bird watchers.
