One of the most beautiful cycle and self-drive tours in France is a route that follows the Loire Valley starting at Chalonnes-sur-Loire and heads east finishing at Sully-sur-Loire. As you travel along the trails and roads of this tour you will be visiting the cities and towns of Angers, Saumur, Tours, Amboise, Chaumont-sur-Loire, Blois, Beaugency, Orleans and Chateauneuf-sur-Loire all beautiful and charming in their own ways.

Accommodation near the Loire Valley, which is known as the "Garden of France and Cradle of the French Language", is easy to find in abundance. The lush landscapes, delightful villages, incredible architecture and ancient cultural heritage all combine to make this an area of outstanding natural and cultural excellence - probably the best part of France to visit if you have limited time and a 'must do' if you do have time to spare.

High on anyones list of "Must See Places"  are the numerous chateaux that line the river from start to finish and some of the offer accommodation right near to the river. About 1000 of these magnificant buildings remain from a list that would have been far longer in medeival times and of those 1000 there are 300 that are well within reach of anyone travelling along the river itself. The reason for all of these wonderful buildings is that everyone who has been anyone from Kings to Commoners has built in this area throughout the centurioes - it is here that the great and mighty built their homes to amaze and instill envy in anyone who saw them - tributes to their wealth, pride and power.

The route covers approx. 300 kms (185 miles) and the riding is not too hard if that's the way you choose to visit all these wonderful places - the Loire Valley generally has a gentle slope that has little in the way of steep hills and deep dales that need traversing as you ride along it's sides.

When to go: April to October.

Time it takes: A week to cycle from Chalonnes to Suuly, with lots of time for sightseeing.

Highlights: The Royal Abbey at Fontevraud - the resting place of Henry II of England, his wife Eleanor of Aquitane (the richest woman in Christendom at the time) and their son Richard the Lion Heart.
Leonardo da Vincis manor house at Clos-Luce near Amboise - now a museum dedicated to him.
The chateau at Cheverney - see the stunning interiors full of original furniture, tapestries and paintings brought into the chateau by it's historical owners. There is also a Tintin museum as this is the Captain Haddock's castle from the books by Herge.

You should know: The fairy-tale chateau of Usse, started in the 15th Century and remodelled in the 17th, provided the inspiration for the tale of Slepping Beauty.
