"It has been a wonderful holiday - 'gorgeous' in every way! Aileen, I've really loved your fabulous cuisine and the thoughtful touches you've included. John, I've very much appreciated all the interesting diversions and local knowledge along with the flat cycling routes you provided!"

"Another lovely holiday in the Lot Valley. We returned for our second time and just like the first the cycling, scenery and superb cooking of Aileen was a delight. It was a joy to cycle through the quiet country lanes, hear the birdsong and see a late spring finally arrive and turn the countryside green. Highlights were quiet country villages with interesting architecture, the joy of discovering the ‘plat du jour’ in the local Auberge, and a visit to a local vineyard where the local wine - Malbec - was sampled and purchased. On our return to Mas de Flory, following a hot shower we relaxed in the late afternoon sun chatting to fellow guests and sipping a chilled glass of rose prior to sitting down to a sumptous feast prepared by Aileen and skillfully served by John. Soon the conversation flowed, more wine was consumed and a good time was had by all. We’ll be back......."

"We've just wrapped up our 3rd wonderful cycling holiday with John & Aileen in the beautiful Lot Valley. You could not ask for a more perfect combination - excellent food, wine & hospitality at Mas de Flory, well planned cycle routes away from busy roads and some of the most stunning scenery the French country side has to offer.
I highly recommend Lot Cycling Holidays for the perfect active holiday in France."

"My initial thought was that this might be disappointing in terms of food, etc. Boy was I dead wrong! Aileen was a most accomplished chef, and prepared phenomenal 4-course meals every night! (I was so full from the first evening's repast, that I couldn't begin to partake of the fresh-baked croissants, her homemade jams and jellies, fresh fruits, coffee, etc. which were offered for breakfast the next, and each sequential morning). Aileen encouraged me to wrap at least one in a napkin and take it along in my pannier for our bike trip. (Good idea!). We were introduced to the other 6 guests for the week. They were all delightful! They hailed from England, Delhi, India, Australia, and New Zealand. Amazingly, everyone got along very nicely, and were suitably matched as biking companions as well. Our host, John..........."

"So when I look back at 2012 ,what shines most in my head is the memory of my days spent at 'Mas de Flory'. How can one spend a few days cycling on different routes and having variety of meals and by the end of it cant tell which day or meal was better. It was an extra ordinary experience every day. Kudos to John and Aileen for their fantastic planning and hospitality. I was home within a few minutes of arriving there. Stay was very comfortable and everything at the barn' had a personal touch to it. Great location too. It was my first Cyling holiday and that too in a different country. I took it as an experiment and it turned out to be one of my best holidays. Definitely getiing back with wife and friends asap."
