... We left our panniers at the hotel, and rode back toward the west, to see some of the Chateau, as we were now starting our cycling tour further inland. The River Loire is beautiful, wider than the Murray but much shallow er. There are lots of sandy banks and sandy islands in the river, and again many people were enjoying the warm summers day. We rode back along the river to the villages of Savoneires, Villandry and Rigny Usse. The chateau were stunning. Villandry in particular had ...

Long drive in rain

This morning was grey, wet, and the long drive took it's toll on our enthusiasm for Chateau D'Oiron near Loudun. This chateau is quite austere and shows little warmth and sign of having been lived in. The main point is that it has a display of quirky modern art installations.

Our guests walked 8 kms before breakfast and we spent some time notionally spending the prize from the lottery drawn last night. After checking our tickets at Juan's coffee shop we put together a picnic and spent the day beside the Vienne river and at Chateau Rivau to keep within our original budgets. Rivau, being a Chateau of the Beauvau family who were supporters of the counts of Anjou, was fortified in 1445 and 'Royal stables' were built soon after. Jean of Arc ...

A trip to Tours to recharge ipad and shop before revisiting the Morinières farm for it's monthly market day. Coming home with provisions fresh from the farm for the next two days we waited out thethunderstorm which finished a small heatwave of 34 degrees. At eight we were seated in L'Aigle D'Or for what turned out to be a special night of good food and some old wines. A 2008 sancerre and a 1999 medoc after a cremant de Loire had us in the mood to open up just like the ...

Tours. Leonardo Da Vinci

Drove across more pretty county, more corn, sunflowers and grapes. Arrived at Tours. Booked our chateaux tour for tomorrow. Then went to find a campsite and have lunch. Set off for Amboise, where we went to Clos Lucé, a small chateau/country house built in 1590. It was given in 1516 by King Francis 1st to Leonardo Da Vinci. The latter spent his last 4 years there and died in 1519. ...
