French Cottage Holidays Bicycle Hire

Cycling is an ideal way to see the Lot valley.  There is easy cycling along the road from Vieillevie out towards Grand Vabre and Flagnac or towards Conques and St Cyprien, along the banks of the Dourdou river.  From Entraygues towards Estaing the road follows the flat valley floor and there are plenty of access points down to the river. A little bit of effort and the many villages along the way offer shady stops in roadside cafés.

We can arrange bikes for hire at any of our cottages, subject to availability.
