Your bike trip between Blois and Amboise :

For a week-end long, get away in the midst of the “Pays des Chateaux”! Between Blois, the royal city of Amboise, and the outstanding castle of Chambord, bicycle paths guide you among forests and vineyards: a guaranteed change of scene.

Day 1 : Arrival in Blois + excursion to Chambord | 40 km


From the delightful city of Blois, get on your bike and follow the tracks of the “Loire à vélo” to reach the forest of the National Estate of Chambord. There, a stop and a visit of the more famous and majestic castle in the Loire Valley seem obvious. Splendour of the Renaissance, the castle of Chambord is home to no fewer than 440 rooms. Take your time and wander in the heart of its new French-style gardens.
Back in Blois, make the most of the old part of town, along the cobbled streets, interspersed with stairs, and with its famous castle.
