Spring Classic Cycling Holidays – Bourgueil Circular Cycle Route

Tuesday is market day in Bourgueil, so whether you are on our Spring Classic Cycling Break or the Loire Valley Discovery Cycling Tour, make the most of this great circular cycle route.  The cycling takes in hunting forests, the vineyards of Bourgueil and St Nicholas de Bourgueil, the market at Bourgueil itself and the river Loire at Chouzé-sur-Loire.  Two chances to try the wines – one at the Cave du Pays de Bourgueil and the other at the Maison du Vin in the centre of Bourgueil.  Cabernet Franc reds and rosé here, but no two vineyards taste the same.

Try out the selection of wines at the wine cellar of La Promenade restaurant, while tasting local dishes served on slate, or grab something for lunch at the market and a bottle of wine and find yourself somewhere in the vineyards to enjoy the tranquility.

When you head back to us, we’ll have a meal sourced from the market for you to enjoy – an Anjou Paella, local cheeses, more Bourgueil wine and freshly picked strawberries.  Simple, fresh and delicious!
