We're making the move back to France to open the best b&b in la france profonde

The Big Idea

So what’s the Big Idea?

I’d love our B&B to be cycling themed – I’ve blogged and podcasted about procycling for years, on and off, and it is my true passion. But we want to be more than that – we want to offer comfortable accommodation, access to great unknown cycling routes and plenty for families to do while mum/dad are off indulging their dreams of Tour de France glory.

There’ll be cycling books and great food if required – musettes and hot dinners and picnics – the chance to sit of an evening under the stars (weather permitting) and take drink and talk the beauty and wonder and sheer soap operatic glory that is the wonderful world of procycling. We’ll be near a lake for VTT routes and watersports, heck we may even progress to a pool one day. We’ll be friendly and approachable and no request too big or too small because we’ll have great local knowledge. We’ll book you a place on a local sportive and organise rides with ex-pros in the area (if there are any). We can even offer battlefield tours (if there is one nearby) and trips to sample the local specialities. We’ll make sure we know all the village fetes and repas, the hidden local oddities, the off the track stuff that the tourists don’t usually see. There might even be on site cookery demonstrations and wine tastings – we’ll want to make your stay with us as enjoyable as you want it to be.

And if you just want us to leave you alone to explore and discover, we’ll be the best at that too

  1. How about bike repairs/maintenence type thing,as people might not want to be arsed doing it themselves,if u see what I mean

  2. Great idea, I’m taking my family to lower Normandy this year, where roughly will your b & b be, wine tasting and cycling, perfect

    • We’re looking at the area around Montmorillon in the Vienne in the Poitou Charentes region – plenty of stuff for all the family in the region and mice cycling country, too. We passed through lower Normandy the other year on the way to St Jacur de la Mer in Brittany – there are some incredible beaches on that Normandy coast, so much history and beautiful places to visit – some great ideas of things to see and do here

      Wine, food and cycling are all definitely driving this move – can’t wait to get there 😉
