Canal du Midi from Montpellier to Carcassonne, 31.3.-6.4.2024

Dear France Bike team, I don't particularly like questionnaires and prefer to write a few sentences if that's OK with you. We did the individual cycle tour on the Canal du Midi in the week before Easter. The organisation of the trip (length of the stages, stage destinations, choice of hotels, luggage transport, information material) was very good, everything ran smoothly. The staff at the hotels were also very friendly and we always had a safe place to store our bikes. We had our own bikes with us and only booked overnight stays, so I can't add anything about the restaurants and the hire bikes. However, I do have a suggestion regarding the route description. The detailed description (200 metres straight ahead, then left, after 50 metres ...) on several pages is not good for me. I would prefer a more general description, but one that clearly indicates the critical points (e.g. when to change sides or leave the canal altogether). With the help of the tour data in Komoot, we always found our way around in the end. Alternatively, you could also (very old-fashioned) provide travellers with a map of the area with a good scale. I didn't know anything about France-Bike before - we booked the trip through Natours - but I've already had a look at your homepage and your very interesting programme and will definitely recommend you and hopefully go on more cycle tours with you. Kind regards, Rita H.-N.

Canal du Midi 26.6.-1.7.23 und Provence-Camargue 2.-8.7.23

Dear France-bike team, we were able to experience two wonderful trips: Canal du Midi from 26.6.-1.7.23 and Provence Camargue from 2.7.-8.7.23. We were very happy with the choice of hotels, very varied and very nice staff. Special thanks to the Hotel Kyriad in Montpellier, where we were able to park our car for 2 weeks. The routes were well chosen and varied, and the places to stop for refreshments were well described. The GPS data was very helpful, allowing us to cycle in a more relaxed manner. We had our own bikes on site and had only booked bed and breakfast, so we didn't rate these two criteria. The information material was very comprehensive and helpful for both tours. The return transfer from Carcassonne to Montpellier by train proved to be difficult. The wide doors of the cycle carriage could not be opened. This meant that the heavy e-bikes had to be transported through the narrow train entrance. Overall, we were very happy - even with the daily sunshine! It was not our first tour with France Bike and perhaps not the last. We - Harald (73 years old) and Jutta (68 years old) - thank you and send our best wishes from Saxon Switzerland.

Canal du Midi, Montpellier to Carcassonne, 6.-12.5.23

Dear ladies and gentlemen, dear Smets family, The trip was very nice - well organised, great bikes, very nice hotels and restaurants and an interesting route suitable for cycling. Many thanks for that. We also really enjoyed the personal introduction from you, Mr Smets. We have handed in the questionnaire with a few small tips and have already recommended you on several occasions. Many greetings from Berlin, which is raining today (nature is happy!!) Christian and Kim K.

Lubéron Highlights 31.5.-4.6.23

Hi Jochen,
The Lubéron Highlights Tour was great!
Thanks for your good tips during the bike handover.
The GPS datas were very good and a great elp for us.
So see you hopefully next time!
Take care of you, Walter and Ruth S.

Portugals Wilde Küste, 10.-16.5.2023

Hello Josef, your suggestion to discover the Wild Coast from Lisbon was a full succes. This area was totally unknown for us. The organisation on place was reproachless. See you soon on our next meeting in France or elsewhere, kind regards from Christel and Leo D.

Valencia - The Green Mediterranean Route, 17-23.4.2023

Dear France-Bike Team, good friends had recommended your company to us. As we are lovers of Spain, we had booked the trip "Valencia - The Green Mediterranean Route" with you. Despite the partly high temperatures, we enjoyed this trip. The services met our expectations. We will certainly book another cycling tour with you, certainly one in France! Best regards, Theodor and Nathalie C.

Loire - To the Atlantic Coast from Angers, 16.-21.4.2023

This is already our fifth cycling tour with you, and we are trilled every time by the quality of your tours and the choice of hotels. Well-kept cities like Angers and Nantes, but also the many small wine villages along the Loire are really picturesque. The crowning glory for us inlanders were the salt flats near Guérande and the Atlantic coast near Le Croisic.We will come again on one of your tours ! Thank you very much. Beate & Dieter M.

Roundtrip**** in Languedoc around Pézenas, 8.-14.4.2023

Dear France-Bike team, we spent a wonderful week in your luxury gîte. The Molière town of Pézenas is a jewel. We were also pleasantly surprised by this valley of the Hérault. We didn't know it. We will recommend this valley and of course this trip to our friends.Thank you very much ! Wilma and Karl P.

Provence Camargue de Luxe, 6.-13.5.23

Dear France Bike Team, we have just returned from a wonderful trip. Almost everything worked out well. One thing not: at the last overnight stay in Avignon, you had given us the restaurant Le Moutardier du Pape for half board. On site, the staff had never heard of France Bike. However, after asking several times, they confirmed a reservation for us.However, no pre-payment had been made. This seemed strange to us, as we had booked half board and only on additional nights in Avignon on 7.5., in Arles on 9.5. and in Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer on 11.5. we went to other restaurants at our own expense. In any case, we went out to eat somewhere else. In the end, this means that we probably overpaid for the half-board on 15.5. and that you in turn may have transferred money to the restaurant without them having provided any service. If this is all correct, we ask for a refund.

At the same time, we can recommend Maison Ripert. You may wish to take up the restaurant. It was one of the best (of the very good) restaurants on this trip.

A small remark about the hotels. We were satisfied throughout. However, we particularly liked the Jules César in Arles and even more the La Belle Vie in Saint-Hilaire. The latter is really great.

Kind regards, Georg M.

Luberon Highlights, 1.-7.5.2023

We were very satisfied with our stay at the wonderful Hotel Mas de la Tour in all points of your questionnaire. On tour 3 we couldn't get along with the description in Roussillon (in the village after parking, after the centre ?). We got completely lost afterwards. But probably the mistake was ours. The other directions are excellent, super! A chain guard would be useful on the bike (oil stains on the right calf every day). No problem with short trousers, annoying with long trousers due to the weather.

Otherwise, we liked the tour and the instructions very much. The landscape is simply a dream. The hotel with its friendly staff was an ideal choic. Many thanks again from Marlis K.

Provence Highlights, 22.-28.4.2023

Dear France-Bike team, we ticked the best marks in all points in your questionnaire. Regarding hotels, restaurants, choice of route, tour description, rental bike, advice in advance. Many thanks from Michaela and Detlef H.

Provence and Côte d'Azur, 25.-31.3.2023

Dear Mrs Michelon,

We enjoyed the trip very much and it exceeded our expectations. I would like to briefly list here what led to this:

 - Punctual and friendly welcome by Jochen. Good explanation of the itinerary and the highlights. On the route, everything turned out exactly as he described it to us. So Jochen' good intro ut us in a good mood for the first stage. You just feel good when you realise that people are talking with competence about the route you have ridden yourself.

- Great route guidance. Although we rode with GPS, the arrow markings were very helpful and an important factor in always having the feeling that we were on the right track. It was clear from the number of arrows and the places where they were placed that they were made by a cyclist who had actually ridden the route and thought about where best to place the arrows. Super !!!

-Hotel selection perfect !!! Luggage was always there, reception was always informed, bike parking akways without problems ... that was very good. Because after the stages you just want to arrive and not have to argue at the reception. That was also a feel-good factor on the trip.

- And then, at the end, the hotel with a balcony on the harbour of Marseille ... Fantastic !!!

Well, there would certainly be more to report, but I think this concludes our very positive feedback about your trip.

Thank you very much, Susanne and Joachim R.

Loire - To the Atlantic Coast from Angers, August 2022

Hello France Bike, First of all, many thanks for the super organised trip. We were able to enjoy our trip along the Loire without any worries. The sightseeing was also all very good. The very detailed route descriptions helped us a lot in the city and at difficult junctions. However, the written instructions were almost too detailed for us. The bikes were very comfortable, but on both of them the rear lights were not wired at all.All in all, we enjoyed the trip very much and can only recommend your organisation. Kind regards, Anna and Heinz F.

Canal du Midi, 17.-29.9.2022

Wonderful trip ! Well prepared. Help on site very competent and friendly. Many thanks for an extraordinary cycling tour. Friedrich K.

Highlights of the Provence, 10.-16.9.2022

We were satisfied to very satisfied in all 7 points of your questionnaire. We went to Les Baux by car. This place would have deserved an extra day in view of the steep, long way to get there and the castle worth seeing! St. Rémy + Glanum + Les Baux (with conventional bikes) on the same day is not possible. Many thanks again to your local employee, Jochen Ropertz, for his quick and friendly emergency help in Avignon! Marco B.

Provence and Languedoc in Charme Hotels, 26.10. - 01.11.2022

Dear France-Bike Team. We are thrilled. Also that it was possible to book at such short notice at the end of the season. Many thanks. Kathrin T. and Horst H.
