The Languedoc is a cyclist & hikers paradise. From flat canal banks to undulating vineyards and steep mountain roads; whatever your style there is something here for you.

Hearty road cyclists can follow the tyre tracks of the Languedoc sections of the Tour de France. Mountain bikers can get off the beaten track and into trails through the vineyards or mountains. Family cyclists can also enjoy the splendours of the area with well kept Voie Verte trails along quiet tracks or canal banks. The 240km path alongside the Canal du Midi is the most famous cycleway in the region, but that shouldn’t stop you exploring the endless possibilities elsewhere.

It also boats thousands of trails and walks, many of which have been trodden for thousands of years. Most famously the trail of St James on the pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela. Pilgrimages aside the hillsides and mountains are littered with trails with breathtaking scenery at all times of the year. We have guides which can take you right from the doorstep, and are happy to help with any transport requirements for other itineraries.

We are currently establishing ourselves as a centre for cycling and hiking holidays. We have everything in place to make your holiday as seamless as possible, giving you the time to enjoy the great outdoors. Secure storage for equipment, transportation, washing machines, full catered packages are just some of the things we can provide to help out. Not to mention a masseuse and aromatherapist on site to help ease the pain after a long day on the road.

Keep an eye on our Blog for latest news and upcoming events.
