Loire Valley Cycle Tours – Candes St Martin

Our Loire Valley Cycle Tours take in Candes St Martin, which we paid a visit to this weekend and took in one of the marked routes around the town.  Noted as one of France’s ‘Beau Villages’ it sits right on the confluence of the River Loire and River Vienne and is built on the ramparts and remains of a medieval Abbey.  Pretty chilly at this time of year but you really feel you are walking through history!  See more on Candes St Martin in the Loire Valley.

Candes St Martin

The cycle way leading to a fantastic panorama of the Loire Valley

We’re developing our Loire Valley cycle routes in this area for the 2013 season to enable our guests to spend more time enjoying this part of the Loire Valley.  Not only is there Candes St Martin, as you tour this part of the Loire you can take in Montsoreau with its Chateau and troglodyte houses, explore the mushroom museum, taste some fantastic Loire Valley Wines and marvel at Fontevraud Abbey – with its links to past Kings of England.  An amazing day out!
