Details

Let’s go for a 3 days ride in the « Chateaux Country » area where the cycling paths will lead you from prestigious chateaux to impressive forests, passing via the Loire river banks and beautiful vineyards.
Your cycling stages will bring you from Blois to Chambord, Cheverny, Chenonceaux and Amboise … all the greatest chateaux of the Loire Valley!

Your cycling tour in the Loire Valley:

Day 1: Arrival in Blois in the morning | Blois – Cheverny | 42 km

Leave the charming town of Blois following the Loire river and its cycling paths to Dyé sur Loire before proceeding through the beautiful forest of Domain de Chambord where is settled the château. A true masterpiece of French Renaissance style boasting no less than 440 rooms and built during the reign of François I. Continue to the Château de Cheverny, remarkable for its sumptuously furnished apartments, which gave Hergé the inspiration for Captain Haddock's Marlinspike.

Day 2: Cheverny – Amboise | 57 km

Cross the vineyards of Cheverny to reach the Château de Fougères-sur-Bièvre, a small fortified castle which perfectly illustrates the local building arts of the 15th century. Then cycle towards the Loire river banks in Chaumont-sur-Loire, whose 15th-century château proudly dominates the town and the river. Don't miss the extraordinary "Festival des Jardins" garden festival between late May and mid-October! Continue on the 'Loire à Vélo' cycling tracks before arriving at the charming town of Amboise with its royal château, where the greatest kings of France lived.

Day 3: Excursion to Chenonceaux | 43 km

Last bike excursion to the famous Château de Chenonceau, straddling the Cher river, and which was the scene of a famous rivalry in French history: that of Diane de Poitiers and Catherine de Medici.

 

Departure at the end of the stage. Leave the bikes in Amboise.
You can take the train to Blois if needed.

 

Possibility to book an extra night in Amboise.
