Holiday Information

This gentle family cycling holiday in France starts in La Rochelle, a one thousand year old white washed city, and follows the dramatic Atlantic Coast south to the coastal resort of Royan. Highlights along the way include a ride to Baie de l’Aiguillon, a visit to the affluent island of Ile de Ré and the chance to sunbathe and chill out on the beautiful beaches of Royan. 
The long expanses of white beaches here have been well looked after and have kept their charm; the coastline is characterised by pretty port towns and stunning sandy beaches. You’ll be riding along country lanes and cyclepaths, on largely flat terrain perfect for cycling, so it's great for families with younger children, with plenty of fun to be had on the beach.
This self guided holiday is available for a minimum of two people and we have departures available every Saturday. We book all your accommodation, transfer your luggage and then provide you with routes and an itinerary for you to do the trails at your own pace. Just let us know your preferred start date.
