Hotel Based Cycling Holidays in Brittany
Over the last 26 years we have discovered some wonderful little hotels, and have produced a series of routes to link them to put together a tour that will suit all abilities and reach any area. For 2016 we have also introduced two routes that exclusively use Chambre D'Hote accommodation (high-class Bed and Breakfast). These are all French owned and French run for a real feeling of cycling in France. For those who are more comfortable speaking only English in the evenings we've also - again for 2016 - designed a new Chambre D'Hote route using exclusively English run Bed and Breakfasts - for details please email.
A little luxury in the Heart of Brittany
Since Breton Bikes started we've built up a relationship with around 50 little hotels in Brittany - these places are friendly, personal and give a real taste (in every sense) of Brittany - more importantly they like, and value our guests so you will be sure of a warm welcome... The hotels we use are not the large impersonal "chain" type, but small family run establishments ranging from three rooms to thirty. They are obviously very varied, and no we can't say they all have 2-stars or 3-stars (some do), or this certificate or that award, in truth the various 'labels' offer little guide to what a hotel is like (I've seen horrid 2-star hotels!). But they all provide at the very least simple, but good accommodation and a friendly welcome. They also supply some rather good food - have a look at our guide to food in Brittany article for typical examples...
A most personal Adventure
At Breton Bikes we've been organising hotel based cycling holidays since 1989. We've used small family run hotels for the most part because that's what we prefer ourselves. But over the last few years we've also added Chambre D'Hotes (essentially B&B). They give an even more personal, and 'French' experience as you are staying in people's homes and often even eating with them. The Chambre D'Hotes we use are all larger ones with 3 or more rooms, and all must offer an evening meal – essential as many are in the middle of nowhere – except for one that is in the middle of a town. Of course those evening meals will be good, hearty local food - again just that bit more authentic and French than the usual restaurant fare.
Hotel Cycling Routes
12 Wonderful hotel based cycling routes to every corner of Brittany
This page is designed to give you guidance as to what cycling holiday might suit you best - BUT! it is no substitute for a personal email to us, we fully expect customers to email before they book in order to discuss their needs - we are the most personal cycling holiday company in the business so take advantage of it:-)
With these tours you carry your own luggage - which takes no extra effort! see FAQ. Please note that routes may vary slightly from described due to things like availability of hotels rooms, road closures etc. However the alternatives will be just as good... Each description also has a link to a Google Map which you can zoom in and out of and see terrain and satellite pictures.
The price includes your accommodation with en-suite facilities and continental breakfast. We don't include evening meals because if we did it would lose you the flexibility of eating where and when you wanted, but all hotels will provide an evening meal (or there's a nearby restaurant) for around e15-25 if you do wish to eat in.
A Little Luxury?
Obviously for all these tours you have pre-booked accommodation all paid for, but if you are arriving fairly late or have to leave early at the end of the week, or just fancy one night a little bit different to the others, we are this year offering a very special night at the campsite in our classic 1960's Notin caravan. This option doesn't add anything to the costs and makes a rather special last stop...
