Dutch Minion and her Bike


New in the Travel Shop is the possibility to join Dutch Minion on an adventure in France in the beautiful surroundings of the Auvergne in France.

The Auvergne is a beautiful historic area. The name comes from the Gallic people of Arverni. Later the area was conquered by the Romans and then split into four sub-areas during the Middle Ages. After many shifts throughout history, the four sub-regions have been part of the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes since 2016.

The area is part of the so-called Massif Central. An area consisting of more than 400 extinct volcanoes. More than anywhere in the world. A unique area with the opportunity to enjoy the special nature, history and challenging roads for motorcyclists.

What does Dutch Minion offer?

In collaboration with the beautiful accommodation of Domaine Barreaux, you can enjoy 5 nights in one of the characteristic rooms and where you can also use the swimming pool, hot tub, sauna and lounge rooms. Breakfast and dinner are also provided daily by the fantastic cooking owners of Domaine Barreaux, Rita and Luc. The last evening will be of an even higher culinary level. Lunch is provided twice during the routes and twice will be for your own account. The way back is also provided. Each participant will receive a tasty packed lunch for the way home.
