Leaving the superb Château de Sully-sur-Loire behind, this Loire à Vélo stage follows the great meanders in the Loire to the city of Orléans. Glorious, calm halts here include the magnificent Abbey of St-Benoît-sur-Loire and the ancient church at Germigny-des-Prés. This is an easy stage, mainly on greenways.

Don’t miss

Sully-sur-Loire: a charming little riverside town, with its medieval-to-classical moated castle, its collegiate church and St Germain Church, which long served the Loire mariners here.
St-Benoît-sur-Loire: its magnificent Romanesque abbey is still home to a monastic community, but parts can be visited, including on guided tours
Germigny-des-Prés: its church dates back to Charlemagne’s period and has a magnificent period mosaic, plus the Musée de la Grange Germignonne next door explains more.
