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

We had a great week cycling, eating and wine tasting – taking easy cycling routes between 25 and 40km mostly on cycle tracks through wonderful quiet countryside and picturesque villages. Mark and Debbie run the cycling side of the business, they are really well organised, know the area well and are very attentive and helpful. They taxi people and bikes... More

A big thankyou to Mark and Debbie for organising our wonderful break in the Loire Valley recently. Mark's flexible approach and excellent advice meant our itinerary was personalised to suit our particular interests which included visiting several of the stunning Chateaux, exploring a troglodyte village and learning more about the wine making industry in the area. We were picked up... More

Mark and Debbie, along with Bene at the B&B, provide a top notch personalized touring experience in the beautiful Loire Valley. Humor, wit, warmth, knowledge, and flexibility made our three days with them so very enjoyable. Of course it helps that they are showing off the chateaux, abbeys, wineries, distilleries, and history of one of the loveliest and historical areas... More

What a wonderful stay we had here. After hearing about a change in ownership after we had confirmed our booking, I was a bit worried, but I need not have been. We were greeted by the effervescent new owner Benedicta who quickly made sure we found our rooms and welcomed us on a hot day with some deliciously cold local... More

Debbie and Mark were excellent hosts from arrival to departure. Friends had visited a couple of years ago and recommended it for a central location to do some leisurely cycling through the lanes and by-ways of the Loire. St Nicholas de Bourguiel is a tiny town only 3 k from Bourguiel where you can find a wonderful patisserie. Ready made... More

4 of our group had been before ( which speaks volumes). Everything went so well from the first email dialogue with Debbie. Both Debbie & Mark were on hand to help with any queries about bikes or routes through our 6 day stay. Bikes were customised for each rider. Routes had been planned in advance and each morning, maps were... More

Wonderful adventure. Firstly, thank you to Debbie and Mark fantastic hosts. Leading up to the holiday Debbie was always in touch and nothing was too much to ask. From the time Mark picked me up from the station to when I left there is absolutely nothing I could find faults with. The bikes were in great shape, extremely comfortable and... More

Let me start by thanking Debbie and Mark for looking after us so well. I was kept informed throughout the booking process prior to the holiday and you could not hope for better hosts for this type of holiday. Bikes were well prepared as were the routes, although sometimes my interpretation left a lot to be desired. we were accommodated... More

Our three stays here have been the most stress free holidays we have had as family. Debbie and Mark are wonderful hosts whose care and attention to detail make for a trouble free vacation. They do their best to make you feel welcome and with careful planning, tailor your stay and the suggested activity programme to each individual party's need.... More
