POUTIE Cycling Holidays

Road bike and MTB

The department of the Puy de Dôme is the ideal location for cycling holidays both road and mountain bike.

Come to discover the roads or the paths around the Auvergne Vulcans where the Tour de France passes regularly and where some “Professionals” are based and are often training.

Camping Poutie is specialised in receiving cyclists.

From April to the end of September we propose packages for all your many cycling requirements:

  • Stays for minimum 2 days in mobil-home or chalet (in July and August stays are for minimum one week or multiples of weeks) or pitches for motor homes, caravans and tents, with or without guide


  • Possibility of half or full board


  • Possibility of VIP stays including guide, full board, massage , access to the SPA section (Hammam, Sauna, Jacuzzi)  of La Bourboule swimming complex “Aqualudique”


  • GPS files of the routes proposed by us.


  • Garage, and small workshop. Area to wash the bicycles

Our stays and routes are studied for cyclists of any level, alone or in groups (maximum 40/50 persons)

It is also possible to book the swimming pool of La Bourboule for the Triathlon clubs who would like to train here.




For the safety and well-being of everyone, here are some rules to follow:

Be careful on the road as it remains open to traffic,
• Remain courteous and respectful of the rules of the road,
• Never ride more than two abreast on the road,
• Provide good equipment: a helmet, sufficient water, a repair kit, a fluorescent Jacket/Gillet to wear in case of fog or darkness,
• Check the condition of your brakes and tires as well as the correct adjustment of the bike in terms of setup.
• Make sure you have insurance cover. (Both personal and bike)

Follow the marked paths in the direction of traffic for your own safety and respect people's private properties.
• Do not take shortcuts which ruin and deteriorate the trails.
• Respect nature (fauna, flora)
• Wear a helmet, goggles and protective gloves.
• Be cautious and courteous when overtaking or crossing hikers (equip your bike with a bell to signal when you approach pedestrians),
• Check the condition of your equipment and ensure you have sufficient water and repair accessories (hand pump, spare tube, repair kit, multi-function tool, drift chain and quick links),
• Control your speed, do not overestimate yourself and adapt your behaviour to your surroundings
• Make sure you have insurance cover. (Both personal and bike)
