Thouarcé
Chalonnes-sur-Loire
In the heart of the lovely Coteaux du Layon et de l’Aubance vineyards, the route follows the meanders of the Layon River closely, going along a disused railway line. After the village of Thouarcé, cross the picturesque winemakers’ villages of Rablay-sur-Layon, St-Aubin-de-Luigné and Chaudefonds-sur-Layon. Take in the lovely houses, grape-pickers’ huts and lime ovens, plus the historic locks of the Canal de Monsieur, and Pont Barré, closely associated with the bitter anti-Revolutionary Guerres de Vendée.

Cycle route

The route is well signposted. Take care on the D 120 road as you leave Thouarcé. Then join the greenway as you leave the village, going up to the village of St-Aubin-de-Luigné. After that, you share a quiet road with motorized traffic up to Chalonnes-sur-Loire.

Link

There’s a connection to the Loire à Vélo cycle route at Chalonnes-sur-Loire (by crossing the bridge).
