We set off at 7.00 am, after a night of storms, but the weather, while a little overcast, was dry and mild. We rode along the side of the river, before stopping for breakfast at a little patisserie at Montlouis. The next leg to Amboise was through the vineyards, and slightly inland from the river, with some good sharp climbs. The chateau at Amboise was again spectacular, set right in the middle of the town. We hadn't seen many other cyclists on our ride, but they were ...

I wandered the gardens with others and marvelled at the size. During the summer months there is also a market set up in the grounds along with various food stalls. I do like ...
