The site of the Abbaye aux Dames has been certified “Bike-friendly”.
La Flow Vélo is a new 290 km national cycle route, starting in Thiviers in the Dordogne, passing through Saintes and terminating at the Ile d’Aix in Charente-Maritime. The path often runs along a river and has other recurring themes such as local specialties, peaceful rural countryside, local crafts, vineyards, charming villages and towns renowned for their history as is our beautiful town of Saintes.
Close to the route, the Abbaye aux Dames has been awarded an “Accueil Vélo” label, cyclists are more than welcome here. A secure room is available for bicycles overnight.
