Your family tour in the Loire Valley:

Day 1: Arrival in Beaugency.

On the banks of the Loire river and still overlooked by its imposing 11th century dungeon, Beaugency has kept the charm of a small medieval city.

Day 2: Beaugency – St Dyé Sur Loire  |  30 km

Follow the "Loire à Vélo" cycling paths to Saint-Dyé-sur-Loire which was the former port of Chambord. Then ride through the impressive Chambord forest to join the prestigious château de Chambord, a real French Renaissance masterpiece with more than  440 rooms, that was build during the reign of Francis I.

Day 3: St Dyé Sur Loire – Blois  |  25 km

Ride along the Loire river to Blois, and do not forget to discover the town with its typical pedestrian streets and its château offering a brilliant illustration of the evolution of French architecture from the Middle Ages to the 17th century.

Day 4: Blois – Chaumont sur Loire   |  22 km

Follow the small countryside routes to the chateau of Chaumont overlooking the Loire River. The ‘Festival des Jardins’ takes place every year in its park, where you will be able to admire different interpretations of artistic garden compositions based on a common theme.

Day 5: Chaumont sur Loire  – Amboise   |  19 km

Along the Loire river or through the vineyards, ride to Amboise and its royal chateau from 15th & 16th centuries. Few streets further on, is the last home of Léonardo Da Vinci: Manorhouse of ‘Clos Lucé’.
