    Signature

    We use premium hotels that are unique expressions of the region. Often they’ve had a previous life as a monastery or a castle, but in every case they offer an exceptionally comfortable stay.

    Bistro

    These are stylish 4-star properties that offer a casual and comfortable stay. Often without a 24-hour concierge or room service, they tend to be smaller family-run hotels that are perfect for the region.

Wheels down in regal France

In the spirit of a region long regarded as the playground for French nobility, we welcome you to the remarkable Loire Valley. You’ll start your trip in Angers, the capital city of the province of Anjou in the less-known western side of the Loire Valley which was the cradle of the powerful Plantagenet dynasty. France has many rivers but one of the most striking is the Loire River. Not only it’s France longest river but because of being a navigable waterway, it led many French kings and noble families to build fairytale-esque châteaux and breathtaking properties overlooking the rivers. Two wheels are best for discovering the Loire’s wonders that includes stunning countryside, fascinating historical villages and ancient monuments, countless vineyards to sample, gardens to stroll and even caves to spelunk. As you bike through the Loire Valley, you too will soon be seduced by the beautiful natural setting of the so-called Garden of France.
