I have been very remiss in not writing about this wonderful experience sooner. We spent a wonderful four nights in mid 2014 with Debbie and Mark. We were not seasoned cyclists and not all that fit. Debbie and Mark provided us with achievable routes for each of our days. We loved visiting the various local treasures outlined for us on... More

We have had some time to reflect upon our bicycling vacation in Loire Valley in June 2015. My family and I consider it one of the most enjoyable and fun. We stayed in l'Epaisse, and loved the renovated 19th century accommodation, it was modern comfortable, well lit, the showers were always hot and the Wifi fast. Debbie and Mark Willes... More

We stayed as a family of six (2 adults, 2 adult/teenage children and 2 little ones). We had a lovely stay-- the cycling was arranged in a completely professional impeccable way -- cycle routes, bikes , lunch recommendations. The accommodation was exactly as described and we met really nice interesting people whilst there. It was a wonderful 4 night break... More

We actually visited last year, October 2014, but I only just registered on tripadvisor and started writing reviews. It's worth reviewing a trip a year on, when you still talk about it continuously. Mark and Debbie were fantastic hosts and made our stay so special. Mark chauffeured us around the local area, taking us to a wide selection of fantastic... More

We spent a fantastic four nights and three days with Debbie and Mark on an "escape holiday" with all the sights but no bikes!! Debbie and Mark have a great wealth of knowledge about the sights and tastes in the region and make it all so simple to pack in a multitude of things everyday. The accommodation and breakfasts by...

We recently spent five glorious days cycling in the beautiful Loire Valley. Heartfelt thanks to Debbie and Mark for taking such good care of us! Their daily route plans, maps and suggestions ensured that we had the time to just enjoy and explore the area. While we were there it got a bit breezy so they adjusted our routes to... More

We have just arrived home from a month's holiday in France and Italy. We had a fantastic 4 days with Debbie and Mark in the Loire Valley. We have never experienced more hospitable and welcoming hosts and nothing was too much trouble for them. Whether it was visiting chateaux, troglodyte villages, abbeys, wineries or just cycling in this beautiful part... More

What can we add? We have also had a fabulous week in St Nicolas de Bourgueil and I would not hesitate to book again. I always spend a lot of time beforehand researching, reading reviews on Trip Advisor and then tentatively booking something because you never really know what you're letting yourself in for! With Loire Valley Breaks, you don't... More

We have just had a fantastic week staying here - it is always difficult to find a holiday to suit teenagers (boys aged 16 and 13) but this was perfect. Debbie and Mark looked after us superbly and organised both the bikes and maps and also recommended the best places to eat and which wines to try (there are many!)... More

We are just home from a trip to the UK, France and Italy. A very special part of the trip was the time we spent with Mark and Debbie in the Loire Valley - cycling, touring, enjoying delicious meals and relaxing amongst the vines. Mark and Debbie looked after us beautifully. Our five days were all planned to ensure that... More
