Between Anjou and Touraine, this route will take you through the prestigious setting of the Loire and its chateaux. Along the banks of this legendary river lies one of the most beautiful villages in France – made famous by the Alexandre Dumas’ lovers. Hugging the banks of the Loire, you’ll be able to meander through the very guts of the soft stone, travelling past the troglodyte dwellings dug into the slopes - where a plethora of stately homes are tucked away, built of ‘tuffeau’ stone, extracted from the huge local quarries. If you choose the Montsoreau-Saumur itinerary via the slopes, you’ll be able to meander through the vineyards, taking full advantage of a unique panoramic view over the Loire! 

Carte vélo La Flèche Baugé

La Flèche - Baugé Anjou and its Heritage Wild Anjou

( 19 km - 2h )

A landscape of woods and forest, an itinerary connecting two towns boasting a rich and varied heritage, and ultimately, a river and a tributary in perfect harmony. The redeveloped former railway line offers a family-oriented escape route that will bring you to a clearing, or into the leafy shade. And after all that fresh air, why not indulge in a spot of cultural tourism?

At the heart of the Loire Anjou Touraine Regional Nature Park, the little towns dotted along the Loire will form the stages of your route, connecting the elegant town of Saumur to Saint-Rémy-la-Varenne and its ancestral priory. As we can tell by the menhirs and other dolmens scattered throughout the region, this is an environment that was much-appreciated by our ancestors – a tradition that continued more recently, too, with an abundance of religious edifices built of ‘tuffeau’ stone. At the start or finish of your ride, lose yourself in the history and alleys of the pretty town of Saumur, the horse-riding capital!
