Cycling (and canoeing, riding & generally relaxing) in the Loire Valley
We’re loving the look of these family cycling holidays in the Loire Valley from Bspoke Tours. There are two villages to choose from as your holiday base – and as a ‘single-centre’ cycling holiday it’s a perfect choice for those who are looking for the freedom to run their own schedule.
Cycle as much or as little as you like, take in a host of local attractions, or just spend a few days relaxing by the pool. The apartments (sleeping up to 4) are self-catering, so you can prepare you own meals on some nights and try some nearby restaurants on others. The choice is yours.
