Description

Day 1: Orleans
Before starting your tour of the Loire by bike, take the opportunity to explore this City of Art and History, which Joan of Arc, in 1429, freed from the siege of the English.

Day 2: Orleans – Beaugency (26 km)
After an indispensable visit to the historic center of Orleans and the sumptuous Cathedral of the Holy Cross, leave the city by cycling the tracks of the La Loire à Vélo on the banks of the Loire, first to the beautiful Castle of Meung-sur-Loire, and then to the flower-filled city of Beaugency, dominated by the tower of the 11th century.

Day 3: Beaugency – Blois (45 km)
Leave Beaugency and head towards Blois, a town rich in history whose castle is the perfect illustration of how French architecture evolved between the Middle Ages and the 17th century. Then explore the unique landscapes of the Sologne region and of course the Chateau de Chambord, an authentic masterpiece of the French Renaissance.

Day 4: Blois – Amboise (40 km)
Today's itinerary will take you cycling on the tracks of the Pays des châteaux, through small villages and up to the Château de Chaumont-sur-Loire, that majestically overlooks the river and the village below. You will then reach Amboise with its royal castle inside which, in the chapel, is the tomb of Leonardo da Vinci. A stone's throw from here is the Clos Lucé manor, where the Italian genius spent the last years of his life.

Day 5: Amboise – Tours (30 km)
As you pedal immersed among the vineyards of Vouvray or Montlouis, you can discover the many cellars where the refined white wines of the area are produced. Then continue to the Château de la Bourdaisière, where Gabrielle d'Estrées, favourite of King Henry IV, was born. Finally, you will reach the city of Tours, where we recommend you explore the old part whose heart is the bustling Place Plumereau, a lively square framed by typical half-timbered houses and animated by the terraces of the cafes and restaurants facing it.

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