Originally, they decided to move from the Netherlands to France leaving behind corporate and modern life stress to share their passion for people and cycling with others by creating a healthy oasis with ZONE BLEUE as the basis for road cycling trips in the area. Getting to know the area better the idea quickly grew to include mountain biking and hiking in the beautiful nature in Auvergne that facilitate almost all kind of cycling and hiking activities. Peter and Edith are both fueled by meeting and interacting with other people sharing stories and experience in the family atmosphere around ZONE BLEUE connecting hosts and guests and in between guests of all kinds.
