Biking the Loire Valley

If you like bicycling on quiet roads… if you like châteaux, if you like French food…

12 Days Moderate

Are you with me here? Thought so. Nothing to object to. A long-time favorite returns to the season line-up with this Loire Valley tour.

We’ll stay two nights in Chinon, where the local château once was home to Plantagenet kings and both Rabelais (wickedly French satirist) and Joan of Arc (saintly French martyr) are immortalized in bronze.

This is châteaux country, pretty as a picture and within easy reach of Paris, so a natural choice for the ruling class’s country homes. Some homes. We’ll pass Château d’Ussé, a romantic mélange of styles that inspired the 17th-century writer Charles Perrault to invent the story of Sleeping Beauty. At Azay-le-Rideau, we’ll visit the famous château where Henri IV’s beloved mistress, Gabrielle d’Estrées, lived when she wasn’t with the king.
