Our knowledge of these wild and beautiful open spaces will ensure you don’t waste any of your precious holiday time.

At your pace...
…the opportunity to ride varied ‘traffic free’ routes in stunning, undulating countryside

with the option to change or adapt anything at any moment.
Just your group/family...
Your group or family has exclusive use of all the facilities here, and all the activities are planned with you, just for you!
Self-catered: The gîte has a modern, well equipped kitchen.
Full board: Continental style breakfast, picnic lunch and a three-course dinner in the evening. Menus can be arranged in advance.
Options for small groups
The ‘per person price’ includes; airport transfers, accommodation, guided and supported activities, with a backup support vehicle and ALL MEALS.
Self Catering: A small group could, of course, choose the self-catered option detailed below as for a family.
Options for families...
Trying to balance the wishes of everyone, let alone combining triathlon activities with a family holiday, can be a bit of a challenge. So here’s the idea…
Your family stays in the gîte on a self-catering basis, doing family holiday activities. Then, for as many half or whole days as you wish, for those who want it, you choose the escorted and supported options for swimming/cycling and/or running.
We can plan routes or activities to fit in with the other things the rest of the family may be doing. We can tailor activities for different family members on different days!
We want you to be able to relax and enjoy your holiday and the amazing swimming, or cycling or running opportunities that are here!
And…. there’s plenty of things to do for everyone…you will be in France after all!
An active holiday
Of course you don’t have to be a triathlete to enjoy a holiday in this stunning landscape. You can just cycle, or swim, or run, or hike. We offer ‘escorted and supported’ options for any of these activities as often as you want. Please just enquire.
Activities For All…
What we offer is a holiday, not a training camp. Above all we want you to enjoy what this fantastic area has to offer. The opportunities to swim, cycle and run are amazing.
We want to ensure you enjoy everything that this beautiful area has to offer; the ‘great outdoors’ here is just fantastic!
The package is bespoke… just ask!
Anna did a fantastic job preparing awesome meals from fresh produce straight out of her garden. We enjoyed a pre dinner beer in the sunshine, which capped off the days perfectly.
When I wanted a break we went on sightseeing trips to local villages and lookouts. I was looking for a holiday to unwind, and to keep my legs ticking over. Anna and Andrew delivered this in spades. Highly recommended for any triathlete.“

Here are some ideas of what we can offer. Remember everything is flexible. We offer the guide, the locations, and the support. You decide what you want to do!
If you want to gain confidence in swimming longer distances all of our three lake locations are perfect for a longer swim. A back up canoe will be available. Towels and picnics as required.
If you would like to cycle for a more significant distance then we can plan longer routes. These can have supported picnic stops if you wish. There are a number of routes, which have a ‘Cafe stop’, but we can’t offer that for every single route!
We can take you to a location where you can run then swim, or swim then run. We will be there to show you where to go and offer towels and food where appropriate.
If you would like to practice transitions specifically we can organise that.
If you wish we could organise a trial or mock triathlon. We can make it feel like the real thing if that is what you want, or organise brick sessions to suit your needs.
You are on holiday…so you will need some down time! We aim to keep Wednesday afternoons as ‘free time’ even in the most hectic of schedules. In reality you can actually have as much downtime as you need. It’s your schedule.
We have 25 acres of woods and pastures, and a track from us goes right down to the lake. Perfect for a peaceful stroll.
If you would like a couple of hours in our local village of Treignac than we can arrange transport.
Why Triathlon Holidays?
You might wonder why we specifically offer ‘triathlon’ holidays. Well, as a family we have been involved with cycling and triathlons since 2005. Andrew has completed the Half Ironman 70.3 at Wimbleball five times, competed in numerous shorter triathlons and completed the Alpe D’Huez triathlon (the long one) twice.
Anna has refined her ability to manage the logistics of not only a triathlon-mad husband but a son as well. She enjoys doing this as much as they enjoy competing!
Finding this wonderful area we realised that it was perfect if you wanted to train for triathlons. As you can imagine competing is on the back burner while we finish the renovations, but Andrew has plans for a full Ironman Or ‘Embrum Man’ in 2019. We look forward to sharing this fantastic place with those who love to swim, cycle and run and the really mad people who like to do all three!
