Vegetarian and vegan cycling holidays from our 16th century auberge in the heart of St Antonin Noble Val.
It can be tough being a vegetarian in France, especially if you’re a cyclist needing lots of calories and riding to new places every day. If your French isn’t up to scratch, there’s a whole new level of difficulty communicating what you want. The solution is local knowledge. We know all the best vegetarian friendly places to eat, both while you’re out riding and in the evening when you get back. Our self-guided GPS based rides always include a lunch stop, and we’ll phone ahead for you so that you’re expected, and the restaurant will already be aware of your dietary requirements. We personally (and anonymously) test all the restaurants we use, so you can be sure of getting a great meal, not just an omelette or a plate of vegetables.
Options are more limited for vegans, but we can still put together a programme of rides for you, and eating at our base in St Antonin is never a problem.
You’ll be based at our award winning 16th Century auberge, Le Cheval Blanc in the medieval heart of St Antonin Noble Val, which nestles in the spectacular Aveyron gorge. In addition to good vegetarian and vegan options in town, we offer fabulous evening meals, or you can use our guest kitchen to self-cater.
The riding in this part of France is fabulous. We enjoy quiet roads and stunning, varied scenery. There are hills, so our breaks aren’t for beginners, but the climbing is rarely steep and there are lots of quiet valley roads to keep things manageable. If you ride regularly and maybe do the odd sportive, the area will be perfect for you.
Most of our breaks are self guided with customised routes. We’ll talk to you so that we understand your style of riding and give you routes to suit. For groups of six or more, we can offer guided rides, but these are sociable and most definitely not a training camp! Typically routes will be around the 100km mark with 800m of climbing, but can be made easier or harder depending on your preferences.
Prices start from €250 for two people sharing a room for a 2 day break. That includes accommodation with breakfast, rides, a rescue service and unlimited local knowledge on tap. We can arrange high quality hire bikes.
We’re only an hour from Toulouse airport which has regular flights from most parts of Europe.
