    "Je vous confirme bien volontiers que nous avons passé un très agréable séjour et que nous avons apprécié la qualité de l’hotel, des vélos et équipement, du restaurant … Les circuits et visites étaient agréables et d’un niveau qui nous convenait (nous n’avions pas fait de vélo depuis des années mais nous sommes assez sportifs). Bref un séjour sympathique et bien organisé. Bon il n’a pas fait beau le dimanche mais c’est difficile de vous le reprocher ! "
