There are now dedicated cycling and walking routes on former railway tracks right through France from Strondhiem to Spain.
The rural ‘voie verte’ (literally ‘green roads’) and cycle paths make this area a cyclists' paradise both for serious cyclists and families who just want to explore the rolling countryside and sleepy villages in the area (for local voie verte Galope Chopine, click here) which is a perfect route on the flat for those of us who do not do much cycling. For braver/stronger souls this route extends into Charentes Maritime from Chevanceaux to Clerac (voie verte de Haute-Saintonge, click here.)
If you wish to use us as a stopping point on a long walk or cycle tour we can arrange to take your luggage on to your next stopover.
