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

Location, location, location! My husband and I recently spent one week with Loire Valley Breaks to explore the region on bicycle. Debbie & Mark were welcoming and hospitable hosts. Their B&B was full so we were placed in a neighbouring B&B run by two delightful French hosts, Marie-Claude & Pascal. The accommodation was superb - clean, quiet and authentic. Our... More

My wife and I had a wonderful week at Debbie and Mark's countryside farmhouse B&B. They were wonderful hosts. We enjoyed the breakfasts and evening meals that they provided. We especially enjoyed meeting the other guests who also stayed at the inn with us. We had several delightful pre-dinner conversations with Debbie, Mark and guests, that were enhanced by a... More

Mark & Debbie made us feel very welcome, with Debbie taking care of all the planning of our daily cycling routes with detailed maps and info. Mark ensured we had great bikes, complete with reflective vests and lights when we stayed out late. Then there was lovely locally produced wines for sundowners and Debbie's delicious home cooked meals when we... More
