This Holiday in a nutshell
  • self-guided hotel-to-hotel cycling, luggage transported
  • leisurely route through pretty villages & varied countryside
  • visit many châteaux, including Chambord, Chaumont & Blois
  • high-quality, family-run hotels

The beautiful Loire Valley is renowned for the grandeur and majesty of the magnificent châteaux that line the banks of this regal river. Slightly less well-known is the region just to the south of Orléans – the Sologne – where shimmering lakes and picturesque villages of timber-framed, red-brick houses nestle amid the luxuriant woodland. This holiday explores both and is a delightful route of contrasting discoveries.
The picturesque, traditional red-brick villages and rural landscapes of the Sologne are in marked contrast to the imposing white tufo-stone châteaux which dominate the scenery to the west.
     
Quiet lanes and cycle paths, perfect for leisurely cycling, lead you from one pretty village to the next, with the opportunity to explore some of the region’s most imposing châteaux. You stay in welcoming, high-quality hotels which offer typical regional cuisine featuring locally grown asparagus and artichoke, freshly caught river fish and delicious home-bred game.
