Imagine a castle with more than 440 rooms and 365 fireplaces, spread across an area the size of Paris! Welcome to Château de Chambord, the most recognisable bvuilding in the Loire valley and, arguably, of the whole of Renaissance French architecture. Situated in a forest full of wild game and rushing waters, in the golden sun or in a misty haze, Francis the firsts' extravagant hunting lodge is the most impressive of all the Loire castles, and, as you will discover, there is no shortage of them.

The Loire valley is perfect for families looking for gentle and interesting cycling trips. You will be able to explore a number of remarkable castles on your way, such Clos Lucé, the last house of Leonardo da Vinci, as well as Chenonceau, appropriately called the “Ladies Castle”.

Quiet country roads will be the mainstay of your bike rides, starting in Blois. Following the Loire, through the Touraine vineyards and the peaceful countryside discovering castle after castle!

This region is so rich in cultural interest that it has been added onto the UNESCO World Heritage List.
