Lac de Maison is blessed with great cycling and walks along the surrounding county lanes which are almost traffic free!

Should you wish to take full advantage of the fact we will set you up with your own bikes, tag-a-longs, baby seats and/or bike trailers - which ever configuration suits your family best.

We will also provide you with suggested routes, helmets and puncture kit.

You can happily cycle to the nearby restaurant at Les Forges and enjoy a lazy lunch, or why not cycle in to the local village, buy some croissants at the boulangerie and then enjoy them with a coffee at the cafe bar?
