Châteaux of the Loire - Car or motorcycle tour

4 night half board touring break in France from £468 per person

Fontevraud abbey Fontevraud Abbey

We've designed this tour to enable you to take in some of the Loire Valley's finest châteaux.

Leonardo da Vinci's home near Amboise, Chenonceau arching over the River Cher, Villandry with vast, terraced gardens laid-out with geometric formality, chocolate box Azay le Rideau and Chinon famed for its vineyards. Fontevraud l'Abbaye, rich in history, architecture and culture, is a must as is the town of Saumur, dominated by its château and home to the National Riding Centre.

On the way to Châteaubourg which is the perfect base for visiting Rennes, Brittany's capital, and Fougères which boasts the largest medieval castle in Europe, a detour via Angers is also recommended - its château is unmissable as is the 100 yards long and nearly 18ft tall, Apocalypse Tapestry portraying the eternal struggle between good and evil.

Chateaux-of-the-Loire-2018 Tour driving distance is approximately 185 miles.
