This fully guided, circular cycling holiday in France starts and finishes in Tours and meanders through the Cher, Indre and Loire valleys taking in an array of the many castles, manor houses and dreamy residences including Azay-le-Rideau, Chenonceaux, Blois and Chambord.
The Loire Valley is quintessential romantic France. The castles on the river and the beautiful countryside are the reason why this region is so famous. Kings, Lords and Ladies of the court were seduced by the beautiful natural setting and it's easy to see why. What could be better than exploring this fascinating and beautiful area by bike? Along seldom-used country trails and side roads on  largely flat terrain.
Our French cycling holidays are all about good food, comfortable accommodation and beautiful cycling routes which create a memorable cycling experience. Whether travelling to France by plane, driving or taking the train, a warm welcome will greet you at your first night's accommodation. We stay in carefully selected small 2 and 3 star hotels and guesthouses that provide breakfast and picnic lunches. 
This trip is fully guided and supported with vehicle back up if needed. This cycling holiday to the Loire is run as a guided tour with set departures. However, if you enjoy having a little more freedom and flexibility then you can opt for the self-guided version of this trip. Please contact us here at the office to chat through your options.
