" A wonderful trip "

I’am just writing to thank you for a fantastic trip ! We liked very much the hotel, the staff was really friendly, the building beautiful and the food was really nice! We also liked very much all the information you gave us, maps and detailed itineraries. They were very easy to follow and the alternative roads were even more spectacular (woods, fields and houses) than those of the official Loira bike trails. The bikes were also very well equipped. So merci beaucoup again for a wonderful trip ! Hoping to be able to contact you for another adventure next year.
