Cycle Touring & Mountain Biking In The Dordogne

Cycling holidays are well catered for at Le Tilleul Gite. Just across the country lane is our other life – Dordogne Cycle Hire! ( We are about to enter our 5th year in business and can offer anything from a gentle cycle down one of the region’s voie verte (converted railway lines – no hills!!) to a fast Mountain bike circular trail according to ability and experience.

Whichever you choose we can supply superb quality bikes, maintained to the highest standards.

Had a wonderful time discovering part of the Dordogne on one of your excellent 29er mountain bikes. Fantastic information was given to me on trails and routes, from long traffic free lanes and riverside trails to technical sections with difficult climbs, combine this with the stunning beauty of the Dordogne and you are definitely in for a great holiday. Huge thanks to Mike and Anna for everything.

Why not use the gite as a base for some longer rides? Bring your own tourer or use one of our hybrid bikes to explore the region and visit some of france’s ‘Plus beaux villages’ Mike and Bob will ge help you plan your routes. And when you get home after a days touring you can relax in the luxury bath of your gite, or sit out on the decking and enjoy a well-earned glass of wine!
