We welcomed our first bikers to our biker friendly bed and breakfast in the south of France recently. Jean and Mark are proper adventurers from the UK and it was great fun having them to stay. Quiet roads, twisty cols and valley floors that sweep through vineyards and ancient towns and villages, make for good biking terrain in Languedoc and the Midi Pyrenees.
We have friends in the Somme who also run fabulous, biker friendly accommodation. Martin offers motorcycle tours of the battlefields of WW1 while Kate’s dinners, washed down with copious amounts of red wine are very welcome after a hard day’s riding. Visit Orchard Farm on the Somme. A decent road trip from Kate’s to Chez Maison Bleue, though you will need somewhere to stay in the middle I think.
