A network of accommodation options with bivouac-tents

"Abricyclo" structures adapted for bike trips...

Opening dates vary, in general from April to late September/October 

 

Are you looking for "natural" accommodation tailored to bike trips, without having to carry your equipment or set it up at the campsite every evening?

 Discover a rental solution, which can be booked for one or several nights, at a competitive price, ideal for your weekend or leisure bike trips: bivouac tents on stilts.

There are now 15 "Accueil Vélo" establishments in the Centre-Val de Loire Region offering this eco-friendly accommodation option for the 2016 season along the Loire à Vélo and the Saint-Jacques à Vélo cycling routes.

Several types of bivouac tents exist, and different names are used for them (campétoile, abricyclo...), but all of these half-wooden, half-canvas bivouac tents are composed of a shelter with benches and a table on the ground floor, as well as a sleeping area for 2 people.  Sanitary facilities are available close by and most establishments also offer on-site catering services.

 

On the Loire à Vélo route (East/West direction) – 9 campsites:

 

On the Saint-Jacques à Vélo route (North/South direction) – 6 establishments:

 

What is "Accueil Vélo" accommodation? It is accommodation located less than 5 km from a cycling route, committed to welcoming bike tourists and providing quality services to suit their needs and expectations.
