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. Tantalise your senses as you cycle through timeless Provence with its lavender and poppy fields. With over 300 days a year of sunshine, the heart of Provence boasts far reaching views as far as the Mediterranean to Mont Ventoux. Fairytale chateaux, open countryside and riverside towns greet you in the Loire.

As a cyclist, you'll want beautiful scenery – and the Dordogne certainly delivers. See and discover an abundance of vineyards, verdant woodland and picturesque villages perched on the river bank. Enjoy canal cycling in Burgundy, with its fine wines, medieval villages and historic towns. You needn’t feel guilty tucking into the gastronomic delights of France on a cycling holiday – you can simply cycle off the calories!

Our holiday accommodation is located among some of the best biking hills and mountains of France in a wide variety of regions and terrain. We have holidays and breaks for all abilities, strengths and speeds. Take off on your own or cycle as a group with an expert local guide; take your own bike or hire one locally. The choice is yours.
