I spent months searching for the "right" place for my cycling holiday - none of them checked off all my boxes until I happened upon a recommendation buried in a trip advisor review for Jon and Alison's place. First off, hosts Jon and Alison are warm, attentive, accommodating and helpful. Accommodations were excellent - I had a lovely, quiet and rather large but cozy room (bath en-suite) in the main house. Décor was quintessential French farmhouse. The house has views of amazing sunsets over rolling farmland with nice areas to relax (pool, hot tub, patio). While they have a really nice fleet of hybrids, Alison was able to secure an excellent road bike for me. There is a huge selection of routes to choose from - just tell Jon how many miles you want to ride and what you want to see and he'll have it! The routes themselves are amazing - through vineyards, farmland and forests - all great roads and peaceful surroundings. Of course there are plenty of chateaus to see as well. Jon's maps are super detailed and helpful. If you're not the best map reader (like me) Jon will send a gpx file of the route. Thank you Ali and Jon for a truly relaxing and memorable holiday. I hope to come back soon!
Thanks for a great review Lisa! We had great fun hosting you for the week and definitely hope to see you again over here - maybe with some friends for a big birthday celebration?!!
