    Une autre façon de voyager, à son rythme. Les paysages et les circuits empruntés sont variés, et les hôtels et leur gérants sont adorables et authentiques. Ravis de ces vacances en famille!

    Parfait pour des cyclistes peu entraînés comme nous. Chemins agréables , sites enchanteurs

    Le concept est original et agréable pour les gens qui aiment bouger et découvrir. Je recommande vivement l'Hotel des Voyageurs à Erdeven avec un restaurant superbe et un personnel accueillant! Sur l'ensemble le carnet de route est bien fait, il existe quelques zones blanches ( une mise à jours est nécessaire à priori). Attention au deuxième point d’hébergement! Les chambres et la restauration peuvent décevoir!
