Cycling Holidays in Mayenne
Enchanting, tranquil and peaceful.
Perfect for...leisurely cycling, more an appetite builder than a sweat producer.
This is the region where you will discover that rural world that you thought had vanished. It is the perfect introduction to France. It is still the delightful place we first discovered in 1981 with warm, friendly people, luxurious family-run hotels, generous local cuisine, bustling country markets and empty roads perfect for cycling. The big surprise is how do such tiny, out of the way villages support such marvellous hotels and restaurants. The children we once knew are now the chefs de cuisine in their family hotels. Their training and travelling have brought fresh ideas and modern ways to their traditional values.
These holidays start and finish at 3* hotel la Marjolaine in Moulay with its garden and heated pool, on the banks of the river Mayenne.
All routes are Grade 1 cycling, flat on the towpath beside the river Mayenne and gently rolling among the backroads.
The perfect addition to your holiday: Pamper
yourself with a
1 or 2 nights Chateau Escape in the 4 star Chateau de Marcay with a Michelin chef.
