Ideal area for all kinds of cyclists

The Vendée is an excellent cycling area in France. With hundreds of kilometres of cycle lanes and a flat landscape, it is the ideal area for all kinds of cyclists. There are several bicycle routes from our house and in the nearby area.

Cycling in the area of Beauvoir-sur-mer :In the south of Beauvoir-sur-Mer, in the area Pays du Pont d’Yeu, one has 150 kilometres (over 90 miles) bicycle routes, of which 70 km (over 40 miles) is not accessible for cars. There are among other things routes through the pine forests of la Barre de Monts, or through the marsh area at Le Perrier. We have these routes available for you.

Cycling on Ile d’Yeu and Mountain biking

Ile d’Yeu: the island ile d’Yeu is ideal for cycling. There are many bike-rental companies on the island. The island L’ile d’Yeu is 10 by 4 kilometres (6 by 2.5 miles), therefore one can explore the whole island by bike in one day. The boats leave from Fromentine, which is approximately 10 kilometres (6 miles) from our house.

Mountain biking: for the mountain bikers there are several routes in the dunes and woods of St-Jean-de-Monts (18 kilometres/11 miles from our house) and Notre-dame-de-Monts (10 kilometres/6 miles from our house).


Velorail: for those who wish to experience a different way of cycling, there is the Velorail (website www.velorail-vendee.fr) in Commequiers (25 kilometres/18 miles from our house). Discover the countryside over 10 km/6 mile of former railway line, travelling in railcars taking 2-5 persons each. You power the railcar by pedalling, as you would with a pedal boat. Reserving in advance is advised during summer which we will gladly do for you.
