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!

This ride offers superb views and points of interest! The confluence of the Maine and Loire rivers is a veritable paradise for aquatic and migratory birds, with the charm of the Bouchemaine tourist facilities and its village at La Pointe. It also offers the lively quays of La Possonnière and Chalonnes-sur-Loire. And we almost forgot to mention the pleasure of contemplating the well-reputed Savennières vineyard, with its well-exposed slopes, prior to tasting its quintessence
