Olive Grove on route to TourtourCycling Holidays in France

We have a huge choice of cycling holidays in France - from gentle cycling along the shores of Brittany to varied and winding routes past Loire chateaux, and much more besides.

Many of our suggested routes use quiet country lanes and pass the most interesting buildings and picturesque scenery in the area - explore the rural roads and chateaux, coastal tracks and hidden coves, there's so much out there to discover.

How difficult will it be?

All of our cycling holidays have a rating (from 1 to 2+ bikes) which indicates the ease or difficultly of the journey.

1-bike tours are mainly flat and gentle. There are plenty of short climbs and descents with about 3-5 hours on each cycling-day and plenty of time to explore at your leisure. The 2-bike tours offer more varied cycling terrain which will appeal to those who like a bit more of a challenge, but no special technical skills (or amazing levels of fitness!) are required.

Great adventures in France

Headwater's range of cycling holidays in France let you discover beautifully unspoilt regions of France at your own pace. On our cycling holidays you usually move on between hotels every two days, while we transport your bags, so when you're cycling you don't need to carry a lot in your panniers and you're free to explore France to its fullest.

You get high quality bikes, our easy to follow route notes and proper maps too - and our reps are just a phone call away if you need them. When you're not cycling there are plenty of opportunities for local exploring or for just relaxing by the pool. And to help you find your way from A to B we provide comprehensive maps and in depth route notes. These highlight the track, showing you places of interest, and give you enough info to explore the area as a team.
