This little green “Accueil Vélo” logo quickly identifies approved structures located less than 5km from cycle routes.

The Accueil Vélo label guarantees you quality services tailored to your cycling needs.

If you’d like to cycle in Normandy during your vacations, we recommend you take advantage of these facilities, which take great care of cyclotourists through Cycling services in the Cœur de Nacre.

To date, several accommodations, museums and tourist offices have already been awarded the Accueil Vélo label in the Cœur de Nacre!

It’s with the aim of offering you, dear passengers, even more services that all our players are mobilizing.
