Langres - Le Chapitre Guesthouse

Small and elegant B&B on the Meuse River cycle route

1 rue de la Crémaillère
52200 Langres
Haute-Marne, Champagne-Ardennes (Grand Est)

Price from: €94

Open: All year

View map

Langres is stunning small town. Everything is walkable and encircled by ramparts dotted with artillery towers and punctured by fortified gates. This small B&B in the centre of Langres is a family-run affair. Régine, Etienne and their dog – a Basset Artésien Normand – greeted us with a wagging tail (the hound) and bottles of cold water. The water was particularly welcome after pedalling – and finally pushing – our loaded bikes up the steep hill between the station and Langres. The following morning we were packed off onto the Meuse Cycle Route with a picnic.

Monthermé - Hotel-Restaurant Les Boucles de Meuse

1 Rue du Lieutenant Barbaste

View map

Aerial views of Monthermé are the most popular postcards along this Ardennes stretch of the EuroVelo 19 Meuse Cycle Route. The small town is tucked around a dramatic hairpin in the river, one of the boucles or loops that give this stretch of the river – and the hotel – its name, with wooded hills rising up steeply on either side. Les Boucles de Meuse is a friendly local hotel that is used to welcoming cyclists. Rooms are clean and airy.

Haute-Marne, Champagne-Ardennes (Grand Est)

Price from: €76

Open: All year

Slightly unprepossessing from the road, the hotel’s location is super handy for the Meuse bike route. It’s only a couple of kilometres off the route and although they are uphill, it means you have a stunning view over the surrounding countryside. With a bar, bistro and restaurant on site, there’s no need to ride further afield for food and drink. Two large, locked garages on the opposite side of the main road with loads of space to lock bikes.

Hotel Le Chateau Fort is an impressive Accueil Velo-rated hotel right on the Meuse Valley bike route. It's close to the centre of Sedan, an old fortified city, making it a handy and interesting stop. The rooms are well appointed with coffee machines and en-suite facilities, and the hotel has a really nice bar and restaurant and enclosed courtyard. This hotel is used often by riders on the Meuse route, so the staff here are used to welcoming cyclists. The building is a medieval fortress so something a little bit special and out of the ordinary at relatively affordable prices.
