Find a cycling holiday in France to suit you

Whatever scenery you like to explore on a cycling holiday, France has something to suit. As we are experts in self-guided cycling holidays in France, our selection not only includes routes in Provence and the Dordogne Valley, but all over the country. In the Loire Valley and Alsace, cycling holidays are all about impressive châteaux and abbeys, handsome villages and famous wines. The latter two features are important elements in cycling holidays near Bordeaux, and wine and cultural treasures are again central themes when cycling in Burgundy. If you are looking for coastal cycling, the west coast is an excellent choice, with its sandy bays and pretty islands, as is Normandy, which also appeals to history buffs. For a sense of journey as you cycle, our Canal du Midi cycling holiday is hard to beat, or head to the Tarn, also in the south-west, to discover landscapes that have long inspired artists.
