Cycle touring: for a holiday full of meaning and freedom
Good for your health, good for the planet
As the French Cycling Federation says: everything is more beautiful by bike. Even holidays ? Especially holidays ! Whether on a cyclo rando or a cycling holiday, cycling at your own pace allows you to soak up the scenery and breathe in a breath of freedom.
Cycle touring is becoming increasingly popular, especially in our beautiful country, where there are many routes dedicated to it. Neither too fast nor too slow, cycle touring gives you a different understanding of space and time. It's an opportunity to fully discover the landscapes that pass before you, and for this, our beautiful country is the ideal destination !

What is cycle tourism ?
It's simply using a bicycle to discover the riches of a territory, alone or with others. From a simple ride to the exploration of a region or even a country, you do your body good without polluting the nature around you.

Vacances Bleues: my cycling partner
As a player in sustainable tourism, we favour solutions that have the least possible impact on the territories where we are established. It is therefore quite natural that we favour cycle tourism. In concrete terms, this means :
- routes from our facilities;
- secure bicycle storage facilities;
- electric bike connections;
- Most of our hotels have bikes for hire or have agreements with bike hire companies
Cycling with family or friends is the ideal way to experience small or large adventures while strengthening bonds. With a little practice, everyone can enjoy a holiday full of freedom. So, are you tempted?
