Cycling in France

Cycling is the passionate pastime of the French. Whether it is the Tour de France or a trip to the local boulangerie, the French provide superb facilities for any cyclist. On the roads and lanes of France the bike is king, and the motorist gives much more respect – and room – to a bike than in any other country. Bike hire, for adults and children, is available hourly, daily or weekly in all of our resorts or close by, for an average price of €15 a day or €50 for a week (prices are subject to change).

Cycling in the Vendee

The Vendee coast has two great advantages to offer cyclists: its hot climate and its lack of hills! Cycle paths are evident throughout the region.

Cycling in the Les Sables campsite area

Cycle paths run by the campsite, through the forest at one side or along the coast into the town at the other. Bikes are even allowed, at no extra charge, on the water taxi from La Chaume to Les Sables.

Cycling in the St Hilaire campsite area

The coast road that runs from St-Jean-de-Monts to St-Hilaire has an excellent cycle path running parallel that could take you from our campsite all the way to St-Gilles-Croix-de-Vie, a beautiful fishing village 7 miles to the south, in perfect safety.

Cycling in the Biscarrosse campsite area

From our site on the magnificent lake at Biscarrosse there is a cycle path leading all the way around the huge expanse of fresh, clear water. This is a marvellous way of seeing the lake and visiting some of the other superb beaches around its shores. You can also take a cycle path directly from our campsite to the heart of the village to enjoy the pavement cafes and restaurant.

Cycling – bring your own

There is rarely any extra cost involved in taking your own bikes with you on holiday. Children certainly enjoy the freedom of having their own bikes with them on holiday.
