Level of difficulty:
Bérangère and Eugénie began to cycle across their home country at the age of 22. Year after year they hand-selected the finest routes and hidden treasures. Now, via Le Vélo Voyageur, they are inviting you to share them. Encounter the breathtaking beauty of the Loire valley by riding between Tours and Saumur. Meandering between the Loire valley and the Vienne valley, the bike route follows little country roads passing by the most prestigious castles, the chateaux de la Loire such as Chateau de Villandry, Chateau d'Azay-le-Rideau or Chateau d'Ussé, the castle of the Sleeping Beauty. You will not only admire the changing colours of the Loire River and the traditional boats floating between the sand banks, but also the vineyards of Chinon and Saumur, the abbaye de Fontevraud and the cave houses lining the valley. Give in to the magic of a cycling holiday in the Loire.
