Frequently asked questions

To make your ride easier, especially if you’re hooking up a trailer behind your bike to take young children along. Electric assistance also allows you to cover longer distances. With our electrically assisted bikes (which are not mopeds), you can cycle all day long: when you come back in the evening, you will feel like you have exercised, but without excessive fatigue. A short sauna session and you’ll be back on top!

This is not possible, the rental hours are in line with the opening hours of the reception

The payment is made at the same time as your stay, therefore at the time of departure. You can pay by credit card, cheque, vacation vouchers or cash.

We propose a circuit from the Ecolodge, whose distance can be modulated in real time from 10 to 15 km. You can take a picnic break by a pond and stop at the Chèvrerie de Maillebois to buy goat cheese and see the goats. This route is therefore suitable for children aged 6 or 7 and up with bicycles.

If you use bike trailers (2 trailers available for 1 or 2 children each, with a maximum weight of 25 kg per trailer), all routes are possible.

A few days before your arrival, you will receive an email allowing you to reserve your bikes.

There is no minimum age, but you must be at least 1.6 m tall.
