Normandy for Families

8 Days Easy

Join us in a French chateau, within 100 acres of private parkland. Swimming pool, croquet, two hedge mazes. Daily circular rides to beaches, sites and cafes. 50-55kmpd. Plenty of croissants/pains au chocolate. An ideal introduction to cycling abroad in comfort. Families with children only please.

This is the fourth year of this type of tour based at a Chateau, offering the opportunity to tour abroad in comfort, in the company of other families. It follows a tried and tested format, where families set off together at about 0930, visit a cafe, then a place of interest and then another stop in the afternoon returning about 1730. After this the children get together and play whilst the adults cook an evening meal, drink a bottle of wine and generally relax knowing that the children are having fun. The ages range from 6 months to 16 years with the commonest age being between 5 and 12. Our children go as well and this year James is 13 and Louise 11. Any combination of bicycle is welcome, from kiddiback tandems, trailers, tag alongs to children on their own bike. I do ask that if children cycle on their own bike that the parents keep an eye on them. The pace is relaxed and I will keep everyone broadly together. However route sheets are provided so if you wish to stay awhile at a location, you are most welcome. The location I have chosen is a large French Chateau, which was used for this tour in 2008. The rooms are small so that most adults can room seperately to their children if they wish. Some of these rooms are en suite. The chateau is based in private grounds and allows a lovely environment to enjoy your holiday.
