Hiking

La Maison au Coin is a hiking friendly accommodation offering hikers a few special services.

Nearby National Routes
We are located right on the 3 day Tour de Vienne (literally goes past the front door) and we also have several popular local routes and circuits for those looking for a walking holiday based in one location.  Fior the more ambitious we are also located right on our regions leg of The Way (Saint-Jacques-de-Compostelle).

Welcome
Let us know your estimated time of arrival and we’ll make sure that there is a well deserved cup of tea or a beer waiting for you.  We’ll also ensure there is lots of hot water for showers and that your room is ready even outside of our normal check-in hours.

Food and Drink
Breakfast is available from 06:30 so hikers can have a quick get away. We offer the perfect start for hikers – birchermuelsi! This is a combination of oats, yogurt, mixed berries, cream and milk and is full of slow release energy.
We offer a suitable hiking packed lunch (24 hours notice required if you want something specific but if you forget we can usually make something up).
We also have wine and beers available in our “honesty bar”.  The first beer or glass of wine is free and then you can donate for any additional drinks in the box provided (coins and notes only please – bottle tops don’t count).
There are also 4 good bar-restaurants within a few minutes walk.
On departure we will fill your water bottle with chilled water and energy additive on request and your flas full of tea or coffee.

Laundry
For a small charge we offer a hiking laundry service for sports tech gear – please ask.  We wash and dry the laundry so that it is ready for the morning.

Luggage
For those hiking with more than a backpack we can transfer your luggage to your next stop for a fee equivalent to the petrol cost plus €20.  Alternatively we can arrange a taxi to transfer your luggage but taxis tend to be quite expensive in this area.

Planning
All guests have free broadband internet access over WiFi and we have a printer for guests use.  We also have a number of route planning maps and books available on the mezzanine.  As we are keen hikers ourselves we are also on hand to suggest the best of the routes and shortcuts.

Car Parking
There is a nearby long term car park suitable for large vehicles and trailers if our own parking is not suitable for your car or minibus or if you wish to leave a vehicle over a longer term than your stay.
