Holiday Information

A fun filled and exciting self-guided family cycling holiday in France, in an area that's brimming with fun things to do with the kids, including sleeping in a tree house or gypsy caravan, visiting animal parks, swinging through the trees in an adventure park, watching castles being built and swimming in lakes!
Your tour is based in Puisaye and is three centre based. The first couple of nights see you staying in an ecopark up in the trees, or in a caravan. Your breakfast is bought to your door and there is a real sense of community within the park. The second half allows you to explore St Fargeau and the surrounding areas, where you can really soak up the beautiful French countryside. With daily distances never exceeding 19 Miles / 31 Kms, it's a great tour for those looking to spend some quality time with their family and ensure both yourselves and the kids have an unforgettable trip!
Our French cycling holidays are all about good food, comfortable accommodation and beautiful cycling routes, which create a memorable cycling holiday experience. Whether travelling to France by plane, driving or taking the train, a warm welcome will greet you at your first night's accommodation.
This self-guided family holiday in France is available for daily departures for a minimum of two people. We book all your accommodation, transfer your luggage between the accommodations and then provide you with routes and maps for you to do the trails unguided.
