Cycle training & guided cycling tours in France
A dream for cycling enthusiastsVilla Souvenir is home to cycle training camps & guided cycling tours and set in its own tranquil park of 1.5 acres (6,000 sq.m.) has now been completely renovated. It is situated in the middle of never ending pine forests, between the Atlantic Coast on the Bay of Biscay and the Basque country with the Pyrenees mountains on the not too distant horizon.
As cyclists, you will be amazed when you experience the flat, well maintained and wind protected roads cutting through the forests.

These roads lead to ever increasingly hilly terrain south of the incomparable Basque countryside of Tourmalet, Aubisque, Pourtalet, and all the other world famous passes in the Pyrenees known from the Tour de France. Yet from our tranquil park you can hear the waves of the Atlantic at night.
South West France offers never ending opportunities for cycle training camps or guided cycling tours in enchanting surroundings with fantastic weather, even in the spring, autumn and winter. Tennis, kayaking or surfing extend the available sporting activities during your cycling holiday or vacation.
Here in beautiful Aquitaine you might choose to sit on a bicycle saddle for more hours a day than you are accustomed... but on top of that, do you really want to sleep in a different bed each night and live out of your suitcase? This is quite common for cycle training camps and tours; we have the solution if that does not appeal, but you will have to read on here about cycling in France.
If rather than cycling you just want to relax on a nearby beach, that's fine, but you will regret being late for dinner. Come evening time, if you are lying in one of our hammocks, then the aromas drifting across the park from the dishes being prepared will be your alarm clock.
Séverine will already be busy creating your delicious dinner. It will be a fine creation by our master chef; whether french, regional, international cuisine or a recipe prepared according to your wishes.
Endless beaches of the Atlantic coast
Villa Souvenir has hosted groups of sportsmen and sportswomen since 1996 and offers a most unforgettable private atmosphere. Léon was voted as the most beautiful village of Les Landes in Aquitaine, France.
