This autumn Cycle Bristol will again be venturing to the hostel at Le Quiou in Brittany. We have a 7 day tour of Brittany planned with 3 nights at the hostel and 2 nights on the ferry plus an optional extra night staying in the seaside town of Dinard tagged onto the start of the trip. Le Quiou is situated in Brittany, 8 miles south of Dinan and 30 miles south of the Port of St Malo. A safe, quiet village, Le Quiou has a crêperie and a bar. There is also the 14th Century Château du Hac, a Roman archaeological villa and a water sports centre at nearby Bétineuc Lake.

The hostel is the privately owned Centre le Page which offers great local home cooking. Accommodation is in single sex dormitories or there are a limited number of double rooms available for couples (first come first served basis). There is a bar at the hostel and a private lounge for our use. There is some great cycling to be had including routes used on the Tour de France (but at a gentler pace!) plus towns, villages and chateaux to explore (including a trip to the Medieval town of Dinan).
