Cycle holidays with Danielle and Jon, enthusiastic and experienced road cyclists, offer year-round fixed-based cycling holidays in the Loire countryside, taking in iconic Loire countryside chateaux, local vineyards, and river routes on quiet roads.

All our tours are priced at €450 per person per week (six days cycling) throughout the year. We also offer shorter breaks, minimum three nights (two days cycling) €100 per person per night. Tours can start on any day of the week subject to accommodation availability.

Our guided and self-guided routes cater for both novice and experienced cyclists. We go at your pace, and there is always time for a coffee stop en route.  

Rooms in the Manoir and Gite accommodation can offer up to 19 beds. Packages include continental breakfast and home-cooked, seasonal evening meals (on 6 nights) with local wine, and up to three guided tours and three self-guided tours. Additional services (at cost) include airport transfers for groups, train station collection from Thouars and linen services for refreshing cycling kit. We offer our full support throughout your cycling holiday.

Following an enjoyable day of cycling, return to La Jariette for a well-deserved relaxing swim in our heated pool (seasonal), alternatively reinvigorate tired muscles in our hot tub and sauna whilst enjoying a cold beer!

La Jariette is on the well-known Velo Francette cycling route, with stunning routes along rivers and through medieval towns. 

Whether you are an individual, group of friends, or members of a cycling club, we can work with you to create your perfect cycling holiday.
