Visiting the Loire Valley in July

This year the Tour de France goes right through the heart of the Loire Valley and will stay overnight in Tours. This means that if you want to visit the Loire Valley you need to book early for accommodation around 11 and 12 July, when the Tour will be passing through.

The peleton streams through our village in 2008.

If you are planning a visit at this time be aware that some places may be impractical to get to, because the cycling will dictate which roads are open. Why not email us and rely on our local knowledge to get the best out of your time in the Loire. We may even be able to get you participating in the crowds following the big race. All the locals will be there and it is a lot of fun.
