    “ 3 jours en Bretagne Rennes à St Malo ”

    On the 2017-07-22 by Jacques

    “ La Bretagne à vélo ”

    On the 2017-07-17 by Rebecca
    Nous avons fait le circuit Rennes - Saint Malo cet été. Nous avions pris une nuit avant le circuit à Rennes et la demi pension. Nous avons été déçu par aucun hôtel et restaurant. Chaque hôtel était confortable avec un bon accueil. Chaque restaurant était très bon et bien copieux. Les vélos nous ont été livrés directement à l’hôtel à Rennes. Le parcours est magnifique. Nous avons adoré pédaler le long du canal. J'avais peur de ne pas avoir le niveau et l'endurance, mais ça c'est très bien passé ! C'est une expérience définitivement à faire et à refaire !

    Trois jours magnifique;Trés bien organisés .Rien a dire .Super . Les dames qui vous acceuillent sont très sympa A refaire

    “ La Bretagne autrement ”

    On the 2016-07-23 by C & M
    Très belle rando, accessible à toute personne en bonne condition physique (peu de dénivelé, et des chemins en très bon état). Aucun problème de logistique, nos bagages nous attendaient chaque soir à l'étape. Bon choix d'hôtels. A la fin du séjour, pas besoin de ramener les vélos au point de départ. Il n'y a qu'à pédaler et profiter du paysage!

    “ Bon plan évasion et découverte ”

    On the 2016-07-20 by GLEM
    Séjour agréable, bien organisé pour un prix raisonnable. Séjour agréable avec de belles rencontres tant à Hédé qu'à Dinan (propriétaires de la chambre d'hôte et de l'hôtel) ainsi que lors de l'excursion en bateau (femme pilote du bateau). La logistique et l'assistance lors du séjour ont été efficaces et appréciables. Par contre, hôtel de Rennes décevant (prix, localisation, prestations).

    “ circuit rennes-st malo ”

    On the 2016-05-08 by anne
    Circuit très agréable, sécurisé et rythme complètement adapté à des enfants (le plus jeune ayant 8 ans) . Ce circuit permet de passer un bon moment en famille qui plait aux plus jeunes mais aussi aux ados et aux parents. A faire!!!

    Sympathique et très bonne organisation, un charmant jeune homme pour apporter les vélos, un parcours adapté aux novices que nous étions, de mignones écluses, une campagne magnifique et calme, la ville de Dinan, fabuleuse, St Malo, des remparts impressionnants, tout y était pour du bonheur en cascade.
