Welcome to the heart of Cheverny, renowned wine region, and to the charm of the Hotel Château du Breuil, your 4* accommodations for this bike tour in France. We are excited about this tour as you will be able to explore by bike and on foot this picturesque area.

The wines produced here are light, airy, and fresh, reflecting the region.
Stretching southeast of Blois, the Sologne is one of those traditionally rural regions of France. Its forests, lakes, ponds, and marshes have a quiet magic, especially when the heather is in bloom and provides for lovely cycling or hiking.
You are offered two different possibilities for your overnight accommodations:
