EXCITING NEWS: 2018 Tour de France opening stage has been confirmed and La Tannerie Farmhouse is ideally situated for Stage One and Two. Enjoy your day watching the race then back for a swim in the private heated swimming pool and a relax. For the week of the tour evening meals can be catered for with prior notification.

Saturday June 30 2018 the first stage will begin in Noirmoutier-en-l’Île with the opening kilometres over the Passage du Gois, they will then track the coastline for much of the day, before heading in land to finish at Fontenay-Le-Comte (12km/less than 15 minutes from us) after 195km ride. The flat finish to the stage should mean a bunch sprint, although with much of the stage consisting of a southward ride along the coast, crosswinds could well be a factor.

Stage two will cover 185km from Mouilleron-Saint Germain (43km/less than 40 minutes from us) to La Roche-sur-Yon (69km / less than 50 minutes from us), a route that stays in land in contrast to the previous day.

We will have to wait until the 17th October when further information about the tour will be released but in the meantime if you have any questions about our accommodation then please do not hesitate to contact us
