Let the tranquil waters of the Loire, Indre, and Cher rivers soothe you on this tour. More than 200 hundred Chateaux, a luxuriant nature and a fine French cuisine are accompanying you along this trip. The tour has been thought to give you all the time to visit the many Chateaux you will find along the way. Starting in Orleans, you will travel through the heart of this regions vineyards and orchards, viewing some of the most picturesque scenery that France has to offer. Among the sights you will see are the last home of Leonardo da Vinci, the medieval treasure of Chenonceaux, and many exquisite and complex gardens, including the one at Villandry. Every turn in the Loire is a feast for the eyes. If you tire of chateaux, the charming villages offer a more casual atmosphere. Visit wine caves, museums, churches, and artisans at work. Or simply enjoy a croissant in a quiet cafe or garden. The terrain is relatively flat, making cycling easy and enjoyable
