Cycling holidays in the Loire –

leisurely and carefree
Graceful châteaux, a rich history, and strong wine-making traditions, mean that our cycling holidays in the Loire are about more than cycling. These being Slow holidays, we encourage you to stop to visit châteaux, museums and vineyards as the mood takes you – you’re not part of a group, and have no luggage (we transfer your bags to the next hand-picked hotel), so make the most of it, following our trusted route notes at your own pace.

Alternatively, if you’d prefer to get the low-down on Inntravel holidays from someone who has first-hand experience, you can email Phil Wise. Based in California, Phil has taken many trips with us over the years, and will be happy to give you general information about travelling to Europe and the overall Inntravel holiday experience from an American perspective.

Are our cycling holidays in the Loire right for you?

If you’re looking for a particularly easy cycling holiday, the Loire Valley is an excellent choice, as the terrain is generally flat, electric (e-)bikes are available, and the numerous places of interest provide the perfect excuse for frequent breaks. To be sure that they are right for you, check our grading system below. (Our grading system assumes you are using a ‘regular’ bike, so if you choose an e-bike, bear in mind that the cycling will be considerably easier.)
  • Easy cycling for all with shorter days mainly on the flat, but some gentle ascents.
  • Easy-to-moderate cycling featuring undulating routes with more frequent short ascents, and a mix of shorter and longer days.
  • Moderate cycling with some longer, steady uphill sections, and longer days.
  • Fairly strenuous cycling featuring longer days with some sustained climbs. (We don't currently have any holidays at this level.)

Cycling holidays in the Loire, the Inntravel way
