Description

Day 1: Blois
Individual arrival in Blois. You can visit the castle, perfect illustration of how French architecture evolved between the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, and the beautiful historic centre, with its typical cobblestone streets, gardens, staircases, and churches.

Day 2: Blois - Amboise (42 km)
Following the cycle paths of the Pays des Châteaux network and crossing small villages, you will reach the castle of Chaumont-sur-Loire, which proudly overlooks the river. The cycle paths of La Loire à Vélo will then guide you to the charming city of Amboise with its royal castle, where the most powerful kings of France lived, and where Leonardo Da Vinci spent the last years of his life.

Day 3: Amboise - Chenonceaux (44 km)
Today you will reach the wonderful Château de Chenonceau. The itinerary will take you to cycle among the vineyards of Montlouis-sur-Loire and through the Cher valley, a river on which the famous Château de Chenonceau is literally built, a theater of rivalry between Diane de Poitiers and Catherine de' Medici, respectively lover and wife of Henry II. The castle's interiors are certainly the most amazing, but it is also worth taking a walk in the castle gardens and relaxing in the shadow of the park's immense trees, letting the murmur of the river tell you the castle's secrets.

Day 4: Chenonceaux - Cheverny or Chitenay (40 or 54 km)
Pedaling along the quiet banks of the Cher River, you'll reach the medieval town of Montrichard. Then you leave the Cher to immerse yourself in the vineyards of Turenna, passing through the small fortress of Fougères-sur-Bièvre, a perfect example of 15th-century local architecture. Today's stage ends in Chitenay, in a charming rural inn, or in Cheverny, just a few steps away from the castle.

Day 5: Cheverny or Chitenay - Blois (40 or 50 km)
During this last bike stage, you will discover the famous and lavishly furnished Château de Cheverny before reaching the magnificent Château de Chambord, a masterpiece of French Renaissance. Built at the behest of Francis I, with its 440 rooms it is the largest of the Loire castles.

Day 6: Blois
After breakfast, end of services and individual departure.
