We loved this trip. Brittany is a great place to bike: many of the the roads were small and well maintained, with light car traffic. We woke up each day and asked ourselves "what surprise will we find today?". We found many: a fete du pain (bread fest), a chateau, a music/dance festival, fabulous people, and many others. We were... More

This was our first cycling venture ever. Our itinarary was well planned. The overnight accommodation was truelly excellent. Every location was unique. The distances required to be travelled each day was well within our capability including making a few "wrong turns and, or detours". The whole experience was fantastic and we would recommend Breton Bikes to anyone as a first... More

Breton Bike arranged a fantastic trip for my husband and I, we loved the route, the roads, the pace, the towns we stopped in. Of course we pondered if we could have done it ourselves, find a route on maps and hotels via the internet. Never!! First of all it was very relaxing to just follow directions and not worry... More

This was our first full week tour by bicycle, so chose Breton Bikes as they came across as experienced and knowledgeable of a variety of routes in the Brittany area. We were certainly not disappointed in this aspect. The roads were quiet, varied in their gradients (although it must be stated that Brittany is NOT flat!) but with lovely views... More

Many thanks for the lovely review - it was amazing to see your recumbent tandem ride off like that even if you were carrying more stuff than fits in my car;-) You're not the only ones to have not liked the rooms at the Henri IV so it has now been zapped from all our itineraries and replaced with a...

Thirteen years ago I brought my (then thirteen year old) son on a week's tour with Breton Bikes. Our reports were so glowing that my wife has wanted to experience a tour and we have just completed not just one, but two weeks touring. We have been given a wonderful time, camping along the way. Geoff produced us a tour... More

In short: do not hesitate to put yourself in Kate and Geoff's hands. They know this corner of paradise well and will make sure you have a great time. Background: Gouarec is a deserted, beautifully tended garden spot in central Brittany. Rides can be short and flat along the Nantes Brest canal, relatively flat treks along the railway lines converted... More

My wife and I took our three kids on a one week gite holiday with Breton Bikes this April. Our children were 6, 5 and 1. The gite is basic but comfortable. Although it requires a little maintenance it lacked nothing that we needed. The bikes were well prepared - right down to seat height adjustments having been made in... More

Thanks for the lovely review - Brittany certainly did pull all the stops out for you that week - the weather was glorious! The handymen are in next week to make sure doors shut properly etc - the legacy of a flood we had a month ago (being by the canal isn't always an advantage)... More

Myself, husband and 12 year old daughter spent two weeks with Breton Bikes this summer. We did a week on a hotel tour and then a week in their smaller gite in Gouarec. It was simply one of the best holidays we have ever had. We are an active family so chose to do the On the Beach route which... More

OK: a confession first. We cheated, if there is such a notion on a Breton Bikes holiday. As my partner and I are the type to get "settled" in a place, and yet on the other hand we like our bikes we decided to take two weeks to do a one week itinerary. This gave us the chance to buzz... More
