Cycling from our property is hilly and suitable for intermediate to higher levels of fitness.

However, you don’t need to travel far to get to miles of easy cycling at lower levels and along the towpath along the Nantes Brest canal.

The roads are generally very quiet and well maintained so cycling is very relaxing. Even in the summer traffic levels mean that cycling in Brittany is enjoyable and safe.
