Bed & Breakfast in west France

__________________________________________________ _______________________________________

I am sorry to say that due to recent changes in the French tax system we have decided to discontinue our BnB, It was always just a hobby of my wife to occupy our time and allow us to meet people.

We had a very pleasant evening there thanks Larry.

The rooms are very beautiful and comfortable and we were kept entertained by our wonderful hosts. Also a good distance down for a first day of travelling from Cherbourg if you are heading south.

Thanks

I concur, a great place to stay and very friendly hosts, despite the fact that we turned up unannounced at 11 30 pm.
A dip in the pool was great in 40 degree heat.
Thanks Larry,
Sean

new website

I now have an embryonic website being set up. Undoubtedly it will change and possibly move. I have registered the domain name "le-frene.com" this is currently hosted at http://le-frene.awardspace.com/ and a mirror site at http://www.le-frene.com/

Over the winter I will improve the site to include details of some of the local attractions. There is also a local one man band BMW guru who does repairs when not restoring ex Government bmw bikes for resale.

also Thanks to Bossies and Seanh for the praise, we are glad you enjoyed your time here.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, the HUBB or to receive the e-zine. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive.
