Luxury in Cognac & Charente

Cycling Tour

2 Days

A cycling idyll, far from the madding crowd, with rolling countryside covered by vines and quilted fields of sunflowers, poppies and ancient woodland. The silent, sun bleached villages snooze at midday, while Angouleme, Jarnac and Cognac can be busy and fun with shops and museums, a restaurant for lunch and distilleries for cognac tasting. Wild boar cross the road and red squirrels pick nuts in the hedgerows; quiet and immensely peaceful; you always pack a picnic as the paucity of village bars means you need your baguette and cheese with you. There are wildflowers everywhere and pineau for an aperitif.

Our cycling holidays start at *** Hotel la Vieille Etable in Roullet St Estephe with its own pool, garden and tennis court.

Routes are Grade 1, easy cycling for much of the region but Grade 2 towards the East on the longer routes. An ideal region for families as there are pools, river swimming and canoeing.
