The Loire Valley Itinerary

Day 1

The Garden of France and The Valley of Kings

Wildflowers in the Loire ValleyWe arrive at our hotel in Montreuil Bellay in the late afternoon. We have time to set your bikes up and go for a spin, but you may prefer to lounge by the pool and enjoy a cold pastis.

This is an interesting village, perched inside its wall on top of a hill overlooking the river Thouet. Our host tonight, Jean-Francois, is one of the characters of the week, and without too much arm twisting you may get to explore the cellars that wind deep underground to a not-very-secret wine tasting room.
