Fairytale Castles Along the Loire River

8 Days Easy 297 KmAVG 49 Km

No amusement park comes close to the Loire Valley, an area so rich in historic and architectural heritage that the whole region has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Where else can you bicycle past Sleeping Beauty's Castle? The real one — not the Disney version! Here you’ll also find the “Castle of Love”, a structure that not only inspires fairytales but served as home to Good King René of Anjou, who penned his own tales of gallant knights.

Bicycling is the perfect way to discover the storybook charm of grand châteaux and little half-timbered villages alike. We've kept the mileage to a minimum to allow you to visit these sites in depth, and to relax in the pastoral setting that appears to spring straight from a romantic's daydream. Or perhaps a few different daydreams — those of 14th and 15th century French kings who seem to have shared a favorite pastime: attempting to outdo all other noblemen by building more and more intricate chateaux here.
