The Loire Valley Tour

7 Days Easy-Moderate

Do you want to experience the best that the Loire Valley has to offer; superb gastronomy, beautiful biking, and gorgeous chateaux? This charming tour starts in Tours, easily accessible from Paris by TGV. From there we’ll transfer to our first chateau hotel, with its delightfully maintained grounds and nice view over Tours. Chateau de Villandry, with the most beautiful formal gardens in all the Loire Valley, and Chateau Azay-le-Rideau are a bike ride away. In Amboise we’ll stay overnight in a beautifully furnished chateau along the River Loire. We’ll visit the captivating Chateau de Chenonceau the next morning and returning to Amboise, we’ll have ample time for some shopping or a visit to Clos Luce, the museum dedicated to Leonardo da Vinci. In Cheverny we’ll stay the last two days in the elegant Chateau du Breuil, built at the end of the 17th century. You’ll be amazed by the exquisite food and enjoy the long ride through the 70 acres of grounds that lead up to the handsome castle! Also on the tour are medieval towns and abbeys, six days lodging in private chateaux, fabulous food, biking on picturesque and tranquil rural roads, and an optional visit to a local winery. Tours are 7 days and 6 nights in length with two nights each in chateau hotels or manors in Joue-les-Tours, Amboise and Cheverny. This tour is limited to 14 people!
