St Malo to Sète
What you can expect
The original and still the best French end to end route available! Why the best? Because it is a straight line route crossing areas of such incredible beauty that no detours are required. Diverse landscapes from flat to mountainous, the route takes in quiet roads virtually all the way. Discover la France profonde as you travel off the beaten track in this diagonal traverse of France. This trip is a true experience with sometimes long days; the emotion when you finally see the thin line of the Mediterranean in the distance is something you will remember for years to come. We cross many of France's major rivers and pedal through rural areas, some of them known internationally for their produce. A real adventure! 10 days' cycling; 7 nights half board (drinks not included); two nights bed and breakfast; luggage transport, full back-up and assistance throughout the day.
- Brittany Coast with Mont St Michel in the distance
- Riding through the Loire Valley vineyards
- The beautiful unspoilt Creuse region
- The spectacular Massif Central
- Riding up the Puy Mary
- The Tarn Gorge
This classic French end-to-end is often regarded as the equivalent of Land's End - John O'Groats. A challenging ride with long days in the saddle and a fair quota of hills make this a tour for regular cyclists who will appreciate roads that are much quieter and better surfaced than those back home (those interested in a more gentle tour should consider our Calais to Nice or St Malo to Nice routes over two weeks).
Transfers from (start): St Malo ferry and TGV station.
Transfers to (end): Return transfers will be offered if possible but in any case both Sete station and Montpellier airport are very easy and straightforward to get to.
Requested Single Supplement (see our FAQ page): £650

'Belated massive thanks to you and Paul for the awesome St Malo to Sete trip. Really impressed with the whole thing from start to finish, but mostly by the nothing to much trouble attitude of yourself from Day 1. Heightens the customer experience immensely when your host provides such an excellent service.'
'Thanks Charlie for taking us on a fantastic trip from St Malo to Sete. It was a real cycling challenge, right up there with LEJOG. We passed through places I never dreamt of visiting on quiet roads, saw some amazing scenery and made new friends. All in all, it was an excellent 10 days of cycling!'
