Service

When you book a B&B room you get much more than just a room. Our breakfasts served on the terrace include organic ‘home made’ muesli, organic walnuts from our tree, yoghurt, fruit, juice, fresh bread and croissants, jams, ‘bean to grain’ coffee or tea. Evening meals are a time to meet and socialise with other guests. The large garden is a peaceful place to pull up a lounger and relax under a tree or in the shade. Our large converted outside ‘Grange’ is where guests socialise, relax, eat and watch the Tour de France or other significant races. There is also a ‘basic’ kitchen area for guests to prepare simple meals. Being based in a large market village, a short stroll will take you to the heart of ‘downtown’ St.Jean-en-Royans with its selection of cafes, restaurants and boutique shops. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly with a feeling of ‘turning back the clock’ 30 years.

Accommodation

Bed & Breakfast ensuite rooms with independent front door access from the Garden that can be booked from any start date during our season. Included in the price is accommodation, mapped cycle routes, a Hearty Cyclists’ breakfast, an outdoor lounge to relax in with kitchen facilities.

We have converted the old ‘Grange’ (barn) to a ‘salon’ for guests to relax, eat and socialise in. The large comfortable sofas, communal eating area, the sound of running water from the canal and organic trout farm, with views of the surrounding hills and ‘Vercors’ cliffs makes this ‘outdoor room’ a great space to spend time no matter what the weather is doing. Free Wifi access here, in the garden and throughout our base.

Location

The climbs reach up to 1400m in altitude, range from 6-20kms in length with gentle average gradients that tend to range from 5% to 7% with the odd 10% to be found. The Vercors offer a real challenge but in a much friendlier way than the high Alps allowing rests in between cols and the opportunity to make mid-ride decisions to increase or cut short the ride depending on how you are feeling. For example, it’s possible to do daily rides of 120kms and climb 3000m (1/3 the height of Mount Everest).

On days when you don’t want to cycle up a Alpine climb, head west to the rolling hills of the Drome to experience a different landscape and visit St. Antoine d’abbaye - one of France’s prettiest hilltop villages with its 11th Century Abbey, sculptures, potters and some great restaurant lunch stops.

If its flatter routes you’re after we can offer you various routes along the Isere Valley ranging from 20kms- 100kms and lots of shorter family / tourist routes.
