2800 km of cycling routes
Seeking a change from hectic, formulaic holidays? Explore the relaxing western French region of Pays de la Loire at your own rhythm, via its great 2,500km network of liberating cycle tracks. Consider the major routes of La Loire à Vélo and Velodyssey or beautiful quieter ones like La Sarthe à Vélo or that along the Mayenne towpath. Down south, enjoy a Tour de Vendée via that county's many cycle paths. Each Pays de la Loire area has its own distinct, authentic, natural atmosphere, best appreciated by bike. When in cycling mode, you take things in differently, both relaxed and exhilarated, all your senses joyously sharpened.
