Holiday overview

A lovely holiday taking in quintessential French landscapes and some of the country's most extravagant and historic castles.

After arriving in Amboise, your journey begins on a high as you cycle to arguably the most romantic of all the Loire châteaux, the Château of Chenonceau.

From here you cycle along the Loire River through woodland and vineyards to the famous wine growing region of Vouvray and onto the historical town of Tours.

As you explore more of the Cher Valley, with its vineyards and pretty villages, other historical delights you will encounter include: Villandry and its spectacular gardens, Azay-le-Rideau and Château d’Ussé - a fairytale castle on the banks of the Vienne river.

More vineyards await as you take in the famous Saumur- Champigny wine region and from here you head to Fontevraud before cycling through the picturesque Vienne Valley.

Discover beautiful places on two wheels with HF Holidays and Saddle Skedaddle.
