Last year Kate and Paul left their jobs in Scotland and bought a house in France. Both passionate cyclists they have set up holiday accommodation specifically catering for road cyclists, a cycling retreat.
They are situated in the spectacular Gorges de la Méouge in the Hautes-Alpes and part of the newly formed natural regional park of the Baronnies Provençales. The beautiful 18th century French house, Serre Des Ormes, is a great base for your holiday. With such idyllic surroundings it is an ideal location for exploring the quiet roads of this undiscovered area of France or just relaxing by the pool. The region is one of the sunniest in France and enjoys 300 days of sunshine a year
From the moment you arrive you will be completely taken care of. Whatever your activity start each day with a healthy, nutritious breakfast and after a day outdoors, relax and recharge with tea and home bakes. Each evening we serve a high quality two course meal with specially selected wines from the best local vineyards. The Méouge valley is a great place for fresh and organic produce. The food will be local, seasonal and organic where possible and always home cooked.
There are a number of cycling itineraries available which will help you get the most out of your road cycling holiday. From the doorstep there are cycling routes to suit all levels and we are just 67km from the top of Mont Ventoux. Bike storage, workshop and transfers from Marseille airport also available.
