    On this leisurely round tour you will follow in the footsteps of the writer François Rabelais, who was born in Chinon at the end of the 15th century.And this is exactly where the tour starts. From Chinons, south of the Vienne, you cycle south. Here you drive an extended round through lush green landscape. To the left and right of the roadside, wide fields and meadows stretch out. Again and again you pass charming villages such as Rivière, Roche Clermault, Seuilly and Chineis and immerse yourself in romantic woods. Some fairytale castles are hidden between the trees.Finally you reach the Vienne again and follow the quiet riverside cycle path. Surrounded by peaceful nature, you roll back towards Chinon on a flat stretch and can always let your gaze wander over the water. Once you have reached your destination, you will have an unforgettable view of the medieval town center of Chinon with its mighty castle.
