Biker friendly B&B in the south of France

Great guests! Our party of Belgian bikers heading out from our B&B south of Carcassonne. We had a lively week, Sonnac sur l’hers seems very quiet just now.

Biker friendly B&B

We were delighted to welcome more bikers to our biker friendly accommodation in the south of France. Angela livened things up in the foothills of the Pyrenees for a few days, she wrote in my guest book…”good girls go to heaven, bad girls go everywhere.” Ha, fabulous.

Biker friendly B&B

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.

 

Motor biking in the south of France

Easy passage to Spain from our biker friendly B&B on the border of Languedoc / Midi Pyrenees. 32 routes into Catalunya featured on Best Biking Roads. Plenty of garaged parking, hearty suppers and breakfasts.

 

Bike Club France

English speaking website and forum, a useful resource for bikers living in or visiting France. Our biker friendly B&B has great facilities; huge garage, workshop, washing and drying rooms, and on the doorstep of some great rides along sweeping (quiet) mountain roads.

A date with the electrician, yippee

Finally negotiated a start date with our electrician – sometime during February – as good as it gets, and he retains the right to change it. We agreed the devis for works in the B&B in September so I am hoping a six month lead in time will prove sufficient. The electrics on the ground floor are new however, previous occupants obviously lacked sufficient interest, time and money to continue to the first floor. In some of the bedrooms there is only 1 plug socket – directly under the light switch halfway up the wall. He assures me the work will be completed in under a week so we should still be well on target for opening our biker friendly B&B in March…surely…
