French Cycling Holidays - A Unique Cycling Holiday in the South of France
Stay in a traditional French farmhouse and cycle the quiet roads of the Occitanie (Languedoc-Roussillon) region with an experienced cyclist as your host.
Discover the magic of exploring the picturesque landscapes of this region on two wheels, under your own pedal power. Whether you are a sporty cyclist or a touring cyclist, whether you love strenuous mountain climbs or are happier on the flat, there is a wealth of exciting routes to choose from, which are safe and, often, almost traffic-free!
Come and experience a wonderful cycling holiday. Stay in my stunning stone farmhouse, surrounded by vineyards, near the pretty village of Paraza, which lies on the banks of the famous UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Canal du Midi.
