Day 1: From Amboise to Chenonceau castle

  • 48 km
For this first day, discover at your own pace the countryside panoramas while reaching Chenonceaux. Visit this extraordinary castle defined by an almost uninterrupted succession of women who built, embellished, protected, restored and saved it. Take also a walk in the gardens - named after two rivals - and the park where you can find a maze.

Day 2 : From Amboise to Chaumont-sur-Loire

  • 45 km
Today, reach Chaumont-sur-Loire by the cycle path running along the Loire river. Owned by Catherine de' Medici, the castle is today an art center hosting contemporary exhibitions. The most famous part of this site is without any doubt the International garden festival which theme changes every year. You will need at least 3 hours to discover the whole site.

  • Splendide séjour
    Deux belles journées de balade à vélo. Dommage que le trajet Amboise-Chenonceau soit indiqué sur l'appli comme étant difficile, car ça n'est pas le cas ! Mais bon hôtel, le vélo était en bon état, le trajet agréable.
