Cycling at Aquitaine Gites Reviews

The cycling tracks have been a marvel. Many a sunny morning has been spent heading to the bakery in Casseneuil. Then on to St Livrade on the river Lot. Great scenery which is extremely safe for novice cyclists. Max (6yrs) and Tris (8yrs) were very happy with the lack of car traffic.

We hired bikes (2) (and brought 3 of our own) for a three day period and cycled endlessly on the voie vert (cycle track) and beyond.

We’ve also done a lot of cycling – both on the cycle path along the river Lot and north into the hills to Ledat and St Pastour – wonderful quiet roads and great scenery!

We loved the birdsong and the position so close to the voie vert (cycle path) was perfect for us as leisure cyclists. The Friday morning rides to the wonderful market at St. Livrade were a highlight. The waymarked ‘randonnees’ (cycle routes) through the fields and orchards and quiet lanes at Magnac, Cassignas, Penne d’Agenais were close to perfect.

We have some very special holiday memories to take home with us. The Col du Tourmalet was the cherry on the cake (Adrian).
