“Best cycling holiday ever”
Reviewed 24 July 2013

We went on this "cycling" holiday arranged by Cycing Magnolias at Les Magnolias to be part of some stages of the Tour de France.

This was probably the most fun holiday we have ever had in our lives!

The owners Claudia & Dietmar treated us like long lost friends!

The cycling was excellent and a must for any cyclist, not for the "softies" though! We climbed 700m one day within 45km's. There was also a 10km climb with an ascent of 900m!

Cycling was arranged on a daily basis with a back-up vehicle. If you didn't feel like cycling anymore, or you had bicycle problems, the vehicle was there to pick you up.

The use of bicycles was included in the package and was of an excellent quality. People that don't cycle can use the elctric bikes that was also available.

We were taken to local restaurants that normal tourists will never see. This included an evening at the Night Market where we danced with the locals and ate & drank from the food they were selling.

The food was excellent, more than ample for our hungry systems, the rooms were well equipped, and staff was more than friendly and helpfull.

The fact that we don't speak French was never a problem.

The surroundings was more than pretty.

Beautiful hotel in a very nice little town. Great rooms, great dinner. Very friendly owner, Claudia and guest lady Michelle! We only stayed one night but we will definitely come back! Our dog was welcome too!

We spent a night at Les Magnolias and will definitely come back. A beautiful 'olde worlde' hotel, with a very interesting history, situated in a stunning area. The food was incredible, the service excellent and the room was very comfortable. The hotel building was fascinating, the decor in keeping with its age and extremely stylish and tasteful. For such a magnificent place, the rates were very reasonable and I've recommended it to my friends. The small village of Plaisance is charming and very well kept. 10/10 as far as I'm concerned.

We stayed for 3 nights and would have loved to stay longer. The hotel is in a deserted village, but is beautifully decorated, and the staff there are incredible.When we checked in, the owner spoke to us in perfect English immediately - she spoke several languages. Rooms are nicely decorated, immaculately clean, breakfast was included in the rate and was plentiful. Would love to come back to the area again and would certainly stay here again if we could.
