- Visit magnificent UNESCO chateaux
- Relaxed cycling along quiet country lanes
- Excellent local food and wine
The Loire valley is an ideal place to enjoy a gentle self-guided cycling holiday. Extraordinarily ornate chateaux dot the countryside and provide regular interludes to the cycling. Riding distances are kept short so you can take as much time as you like exploring each one, taking you back to a time of kings and noblemen. The picturesque countryside offers the perfect setting for idyllic picnics adding to the relaxed freedom of this trip. Each evening we stay in friendly, family run hotels and you can round off your day with some of the best food and wine France has to offer.
