On Your Bike

Cycling holidays for individuals, families or groups

If you enjoy cycling in the less populated areas, the very fresh air, open roads, minimal traffic if any at all then a cycling holiday at Grue Demoiselle is the place for you.  We are ideally situated for both road and off road cycling, our local area has a good range of challenges to suit most abilities, with either long steady inclines, winding hill roads through wooded areas.  Find your own routes or follow our maps, or a bit of both, the choice is yours.  

We offer you a complete package of comfortable en-suite accommodation, a relaxing environment, home cooked meals, freely available refreshments and fresh fruit to complement your stay and make you feel at home. Prior to your arrival your bike would be arranged for you and any accessories requested, there is even a tandem!

So think about this: Wake to sunshine and fresh air after a good nights sleep, have a hot shower and join everyone for a hearty breakfast, then plan your route, get on your bike and set out from Grue for a few hours cycling, explore the local countryside and wonder at where all the cars, litter and people are.  Stop for lunch at a small bistro or enjoy a packed lunch, before winding your way back to us.  Spend the afternoon relaxing or exploring further afield or if you dare, another bike ride before an aperitif and dinner in the evening.  Feel refreshed, glowing, happy and fit, a great break.

All our food is freshly prepared and locally sourced and where possible from our own vegatable patch, vegetarians are also catered for, we will contact you when you book to discuss your dietry preferences.

Take advantage also of our in-house Bowen Technique Therapist where a relaxing treatment in our designated room will enhance your stay, whether its after a days cycling or a chance to chill out whilst the rest of your party are out, make the most of it.

The Bikes

We are confident in the quality of bikes supplied by Bike Hire Direct, who take care in ensuring your cycling holiday is enjoyed with a quality bike, after we supply them with your information they will deliver your bike, helmet, pump and puncture repair kit here, all ready for your holiday.  If you would like to start your trip further away then they can also deliver your bike to that location which enables you to explore further afield.  Bike racks for cars are also available as well as other accessories.

We would recommend you start your holiday with the ride around Lac de St Pardoux, then have your bikes brought back here ready for local exploration the next day/s.

For your convenience we are offering a complete package and will organise your bike for you.

You are also welcome to bring your own bikes, our roads here are superb for bikes, our hire bikes are mountain bikes, suitable for the many green lanes.

We are in the Haute Vienne region of France which is also known as department 87, we have sourced some of our own local routes but here are some other suggested cycling routes: click here

You will find there are lots of routes and combinations of routes in our area, here is a suggested route for the more adventurous and serious cyclist, although it looks like a 90 minute route (about 23kms) out it does offer a couple of challenging climbs but the view and descents are worth it.  There are some bars and restaurants at Blond and Cieux (only open between 12.00 - 14.00) and this trip takes in some prehistoric standing stone sites.  There are other suggested routes back so we have left it for you to choose or discuss when you are here.
