France Bike Tours

Royal stay in Châteaux Country

  • 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 estate is located in a beautiful 45 hectare park in the heart of the castle strewn Loire Valley. This is a lush and fertile area, crisscrossed with rivers and vineyards. 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:
    Le Verger: renovated rooms with refined decor situated in the former orchards.
    Le Chateau: a wonderful manor house from 18th century with personalized but original and elegant decor.

    Another wonderful option available for this tour is a hot air balloon ride! You will drift over the Loire Valley and enjoy a unique view of the chateaux. See pricing.
