Charente, Dordogne and the Haute Vienne – Cycling Tours for All Abilities

Explore the beautiful countryside south-west of Limoges with local riders

Offered by:
Cycling Chez Nous

Phone number:
+33 (0)5 55 75 33 41 or +44 (0)7538 344076,

Tour length:
6 days riding (can be tailored for you)

Price:
From €532-€832 depending on your preferred accommodation (gite or farmhouse)

Sue and Phil at Cycling Chez Nous offer fixed base tours on a guided or self-guided basis (with gpx files provided) in their own backyard. The Haute-Vienne is a much lesser cycled area of France and takes in the triangle on the Dordogne/Charente border within reach of Limoges, Angouleme and Thiviers. It is a true – and very 'local' – cycling paradise with mainly traffic-free roads that run through a landscape of fields and forests. The roads are a pleasure to cruise along, the sun on your back as the beauty of the region slides silently past you. Prices include accommodation based on 7 nights, daily continental breakfast, afternoon tea and 6 three-course evening meals with wine, cheese and coffee (one night is reserved for you to enjoy a local restaurant). There's also canapes and fizz on first and last evenings. Shorter or longer tours can be tailored for you. Airport transfers from Limoges can also be arranged.
