Premium Bike weekend 

Take advantage of a weekend or a short stay to take care of yourself and discover typical villages of Haute-Loire, in particular the magnificent villages of Bigorre and Moudeyres, in which you will be welcomed in the magnificent Hostellerie du Pré Bossu *** which will offer you a very gourmet meal in a unique and warm atmosphere.

Your route is made up of gentle routes, small roads and accessible paths. The altitude difference and the kilometers are moderate to enjoy your weekend quietly without pressure.

A route by electric bike or, according to your desire, by mountain bike which makes you discover: the mountain landscapes, a volcanic lake, meadows as far as the eye can see, the architecture of stones and thatch and the Altiligerian gastronomy.

But that’s not all, the trip by electric bike allows you to meet and exchange easily with the inhabitants of Haute-Loire.
