Château de Candes is a delightfully quirky centre-base in the charming cobbled village of Candes-St-Martin. The sumptuous and stylish maisons, lofts and apartments are scattered around the grounds and within the immediate vicinity of the stunning main castle building. Candes-St-Martin is on the list of ‘plus beaux villages de France’, or the most beautiful villages of France. A short walk (or ride) along the river is the village of Montsoreau, an old river port from the medieval period when the Loire was a major trade route. Its chateau, the setting of a famous Dumas novel, is the only one in the Loire valley built in the riverbed itself. There are some great activities on offer for when you’re having a break from cycling. Take a trip to the Cadre Noire equestrian school in Saumur, visit local chateaux, canoe on the Loire and Indre rivers or indulge in a one-day wine tasting tour. You will also be able to visit the ancient abbey at Fontevraud, with its mix of historical and contemporary attractions, sample the produce of the region's different wine appellations in one of the many local caves, paddle along the Vienne river between Chinon and Montsoreau in a canoe. The price of this tour includes touring bikes, water bottle and accessories, self-catering apartments, full tour information, detailed navigational material, often including GPS maps, local support whenever needed. E-bikes available on request, flights and transfers available on request and full financial protection through ABTA and ATOL.
