A cycling week from Tours to Saumur Discover the breathtaking beauty of the Loire Valley by riding on the Loire à Vélo route between Tours and Saumur. Meandering between the Loire valley and the Vienne valley, the route goes on little country roads, passing the most prestigious castles – such as Villandry, Azay-le-Rideau and Ussé (the castle of the Sleeping Beauty) – en route. Admire the ever-changing colours along the river as the traditional boats bob up and down between the sand banks. There's also a day set aside to take a canoe out on to the Loire. Bérangère (pictured) and Eugénie set up Le Vélo Voyageur to share the best bits of their homeland with others. This is their favourite Loire itinerary.
