Centre-Val de Loire: le Perche, the arty countryside by bike



Chic and discreet, le Perche is a condensed countryside perfect to pedal around in: small valleys, green bocages, leafy woodlands, charming villages, and many antique dealers.

Where?

In the stretch of Illiers Combray/Nogent-le-Rotrou of Véloscénie (43 km) via Thiron-Gardais: a two-wheel biking trail with small roads and breathtaking views.

Why?

“From the cradle of Marcel Proust’s work (Illiers Combray) going through the themed gardens of the Thiron-Gardais abbey, to the Saint-Jean castle, this tour is a condensed experience of terroir and countryside,” explains Vincent Garnier, Director of the Regional Tourism Committee of Centre-Val de Loire.

What to do?

Hunt for antiques! This is a true heaven for vintage lovers, le Perche is home to lots of antique dealers. Right from the start of April, the season is in full swing with garage sales and antique markets. The stops of the Nogent-le-Rotrou coast are very pleasant for an open-air shopping experience.

Where to sleep?

O bon'heur, a little guest house located at the heart of Frazé, a charming village of Perche. Labelled as a Bike Friendly spot, this pleasant stop is available for a great rate (€60 double room) with a terrace adjacent to the rooms, a restaurant, and a grocery store with products from Perche…
