Cycle through idyllic scenery and visit the finest chateaux in France
This is an incredibly relaxed self-guided itinerary, ideal for those who enjoy their food and wine as much as culture and cycling. The distances are kept short, with optional cycling days built in so you have plenty of time to explore the many fabulous chateaux, enjoy long lazy lunches or a lengthy stop at a vineyard. If this isn't enough to tempt you, the setting is beautiful, with rides along the pretty river banks that meander through the countryside. To top it off our hotels are superb and your evening meals will be a highlight!
