Leaving from Les Ponts-de-Cé, beside the Loire just south of Angers, this stage takes you meandering through the Aubance Valley vineyards. Discover beautiful, typical Anjou houses and windmills along the way. The village of Brissac and its vast castle make for a pleasing stop before continuing to the Layon Valley at Thouarcé.

The signposted route takes you through vineyards via quiet roads and tracks. It doesn’t present any particular difficulties.
There are links to the Loire à Vélo cycle route at Saint-Rémy-la-Varenne (via the Loire – Aubance link) or at Les Ponts-de-Cé.
