VéloGîtes Gîte

Lieu de la Bussière, Availles-Limouzine, France

Welcome to VéloGîtes

Welcome to VéloGîtes, the gîte holiday centre which, we believe is every cyclists' and motorcyclists' perfect base to explore this amazing region in France.   Located at the southern tip of the Vienne department we are 4 hours’ drive from Caen and 7 hours' from Calais.  

We spent eighteen months choosing our location and finally settled on the vibrant village of Availles-Limouzine (just a ten-minute walk away from your door).   The area has fantastic road surfaces, combined with sweeping bends and stunning views; perfect for a holiday on two wheels!  We are also located within a ten minute ride from the famous motor racing circuit of Vale de Vienne.  The race track hosts a number of events throughout the year including a Ducati weekend and the Ultimate Cup series.  Track days are, of course, available!

For cyclists, look no further; we established oursleves here due to the amazing cycling in the region.  EuroVelo route 3 actually passes through the village of Availles-Limouzine and numerous races are orgainsed by French clubs on the local roads.  We have created a number of Strava routes for our guests and grade each route for ease of use. 

VéloGîtes is situated on the slopes above the river Vienne with stunning views over the village.  A new 12m x 6m heated pool is the perfect place to relax after a busy day exploring the region, maybe a quick dip before firing up the barbecue?
