Sitting in a quiet hamlet just 3km from the medieval fortress town of Domfront, the B&B at La Pichellerie has south-facing bedrooms that overlook beautiful rolling countryside. Gary and Jackie are keen to welcome more cyclists to their little oasis, and have everything riders need to experience a warm welcome. Domfront puts you at the crossroads of the Paris to Mont St Michel Veloscenie bike route, as well as the Caen to La Rochelle Velo Francette. That makes the ferry ports of Caen, Le Havre, Saint Malo and Cherbourg all within reach and on bike routes from the door. Whether you're just passing through or staying on, this area is steeped in history: ride through the shady Foret d'Andaines, visit the pretty spa town of Bagnoles de l'Orne or see the 'Grande' and 'Petite' Cascades at Mortain. The old town of Fougeres with its medieval chateau is also a highlight, or continue on to Mont Saint Michel or the Normandy beaches for more history. Choose from gentle local terrain or stretch your legs up in the Swiss Normandie. Three-course evening meals and light suppers available on request if you're arriving late or tired (enjoy them on the terrace while watching the sun set over the valley). English, some French and German spoken.
