Cycling on the Loire

Recommended Posts

There is good guide for cycling along the Loire valley with of café, camp sites and train stations if you wish to extend the day trip.


Have a look on the "www.af3v.org/-Itineraires-Eurovelo-en-France-.html" web site, I think the book may be in French but it should be easy to understand the information on the maps.


Friends mentioned it to me a while ago as they used the guide, this year they are cycling along the Canal du Midi, whilst using their motor home.

I know you stated to the west but there is a good ACSI family run site right on the cycle way called Les Acacias but just outside Tours but to the East,




easy ride into Tours, campsite restaurant if required also Leclerc supermarket, with good brasserie, in walking distance if required.

Try Camping Le Thouet...lovely rural site on a tributary of the Loire, with a great cycle ride to Saumur.

We've stayed there twice now. It's a low key, informal, site set amongst vineyards.


See our blog for pics of the cycle ride.

Can anyone recommend any campsites along the Loire ( to the west of Tours ) with good access for cycling alongside the river ?

Just looking for somewhere to stop off for a couple of days on the way further south.
