A bike weekend along the Royal River - 78 km

You’ve entered the part of the Loire known as France’s Valley of the Kings, with many famed châteaux between Blois and Tours, both cities where the French court refined the art of living. Each castle bears the imprint of royal happenings. These emblematic lordly dwellings call for your visit along this majestic stretch, a major part of the Loire à Vélo cycle route.
