At Montoire-sur-le-Loir, cross the river to reach Lavardin, a member of the association “Les Plus Beaux Villages de France”, its houses tucked below castle ruins. Beyond this picturesque village, it’s full steam southwards, the Saint-Jacques à Vélo route running beside a tributary of the Loir for several kilometres.
The stage continues through country parts and undulating farmland, entering the Château-Renault area set between the Loir (without an “e”) and the Loire.
