Maison Roubia and Mellow Vélos have joined together to create a luxurious cycling holiday with  twist.  If you are a keen cyclist who is looking to step up to the next level but not yet ready for a training camp, our focus is providing you with challenging routes (guided or self-guided)  within the stunning Languedoc region, but with the comfort of first-class accommodation.  Our aim is to provide you with everything you need to enjoy your cycling retreat – you just need to bring your cycling clothes and sunscreen.

On your arrival Mellow Velos  will deliver your bikes to Masion Roubia and will fit them.  After a brief introduction to the bike and the routes you will be able to the start on your first short ride.  Your daily rides will start and finish from Masion Roubia and will be designed for your competency level.  We offer the choice of guided rides in the company of a world-class cyclist, or self guided. Whichever you choose you will be cycling through some amazing scenery and there will be plenty of opportunities to explore the French café society.

We welcome rider’s partners and you can either enjoy the facilities of Maison Roubia or explore the surrounding areas, with Sunday Markets at St Chinian, the local vide-greniers, spa treatments or simply meeting-up with your partners for lunch.

At the end of your riding day you will return to Maison Roubia where Claire will welcome you with a cold beverage and where you will find good food, luxurious beds and genuine hospitality.

We limit availability to 10 people so you can be sure of our undivided attention. You can come with a group of your friends or you could join other like- minded cyclists. For the non-cyclists in your group we offer a concierge service where we can offer a range other activities for them to enjoy, including wine tasting, spa treatment or  golf.
