We would without hesitation return as we feel there is still much to explore on our bikes and Neil and Nat are so welcoming. The Villa is fantastic for those wanting a little more independence and privacy in comparison to the B&B and perfect for a family or a group of friends. Really a first class service. Despite being away from the B&B we still felt we were just a well looked after as if we were staying there. The only thing we missed was Neil’s cooking. Hopefully when we return our daughter will be able to go in a bike trailer so she can join the fun too.

SOME CUSTOMER QUOTES ON OUR SELF GUIDED TOUR SET UP

"It's also very comforting to know that a friend with a car is just a phone call away should you need help. It's an ideal way of bicycle touring because you can ride at your own pace and schedule, or just take a day off to be a regular tourist. "
Courtney - US - Sept 12.

"The best part was that each bike was equipped with its own GPS allowing us true custom tour routes."
Jeff & Lynda - US - Sept 2010.

"Neil made it all very easy with great bikes and great advice."
Richard & Annette - UK - June 2010.

"Neil was very accommodating. Even met up with us to loan me some money when I forgot my wallet on our first biking outing."
Dana & Flynn - US - June 2010.
