This stage continues to follow the Loir’s meandering curves. Near the start, the nautical centre at Villiers-sur-Loir offers a great opportunity for you to cool off before crossing more of the Vendômois area’s countryside. The town of Montoire-sur-le-Loir boasts a rich medieval heritage, including historic houses right by the water. It makes a good stop on the route.

The route

Signposted “Vallée du Loir V47”, going along small country roads. Take care 4km from your arrival at Montoire-sur-le-Loir; on the final stretches of the stage, along the D917B road, then the D917, as the motorized traffic can be quite dense. This stage shares the way with the Saint-Jacques à Vélo route, hence the double signage.
