The enjoyment of this holiday was in no small part due to the venue we had chosen. Over the last couple of years, we have stayed in many a different hostel, hotel, hut and campsite all with differing standards of provision. We are both in agreement that Correze Cycling Holidays (correzecycling.com) beat all the other competitors in every category. I know that Sam and James will read this along with, I hope other cyclists, and I want to make it clear that the comments that follow are genuine; the welcome was warm (much, much warmer than the weather), accommodation was equally warm, immaculately presented and catered for every need; the food was exceptional – being that rare combination of wholesome, carefully sourced and delicious; the attention to detail did not stop there, as the bikes were seen as an important part of the whole and James was always on hand to assist with maintenance and transport. (Unfortunately an injured back prevented him from riding with us – probably just as well as our pace is somewhat sedentary. It did not, however, prevent him from taking a keen interest in our ventures and transporting us and bikes when necessary.) The cycling in this area caters for all abilities with challenges to suit your ambitions. With quiet roads in beautiful countryside littered with charming villages, many with welcoming bars and cafés, you may be absolutely certain that this is an experience second to none. We much appreciated the company and patience of Sam and James and their family. Thank you all.
