To say “bike friendly” is an understatement! Nearly a quarter of the 500-mile long Loire à Vélo trail passes through Anjou. In fact France’s largest intersection of waterways is rich with cycling opportunities, along the rivers Sarthe, Maine, Loir, Thouet, Layon or Aubance

Perfect for exploring the Loire Valley’s natural, cultural and gastronomic heritage as you go. Relax in flat shady woods, or opt for a sportier alternative through vineyard-covered hills and valleys. Thirty well-signposted circuits offer mountain bike enthusiasts 150 miles of fun! And special events abound, such as the Fête du Vélo en Anjou, Anjou Velo Vintage... An exciting prospect? Book a package with a different stopping place each night and a big breakfast to start the day!
