Loire Valley Route

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Countryside views and Chateaus; and plenty of opportunities for picnics

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

1. Pack light as you will only need a change of clothes for the evening. 2. Plan interim routes for the rest days - there are lots of short routes to interesting places and given the distances you don't really need a day's rest. 3. There are plenty of nice places to stop and have a picnic on the way. Buy your picnic in the morning as the shops are likely closed at the time you want to have lunch (12.00-15.00!)
