Pin It

The spirit of abundance is everywhere in the Loire Valley.

Its fertile fields have earned it a place as the “Garden of France” and its bike-friendly routes through breathtaking beauty invigorate the spirit. As we pedal through this luxuriant region, we’ll discover the other lush gifts it bestows: The storied châteaux of Chambord, Chenonceau, and Villandry … the verdant vineyards of the Touraine … the medieval Old Town of Blois and the charming village of Azay-le-Redeau … and vintages once produced by local monks. Join VBT on this cycling reverie through a land of fairytale castles, elegant gardens, and medieval splendor.
