Cycle Site


Renovated ‘Longère’ house in a small French hamlet on a feeder route of the world famous Pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostelle in northern Spain.

The area is rich in birdlife with many species not found in the UK. There is an abundance of Harriers, Eagle Owls and Buzzards, plus summer visitors such as the Hoopoe, Swallow and Golden Oriole, to name but a few.

The surrounding area has lots of safe walks and is the perfect location for all types of cycling thanks to the very low traffic density in this region.

The area is also rich in history, dating back to Eleanor of Aquitaine and her sons Richard and John. The Black Prince defeated the Moors near Poitiers, and there are many remains of the Templers and the Knights Hospitalers. There are Roman remains at Rom, Sanxay, Bagnault and Exoudun just a short drive from the house.
