  • Day 1

    Arrival in Saumur

    Discover this elegant city of Art and History and its vineyards. Ideas for a visit: The Cadre Noir riding school, the imposing Saumur Castle with its exceptional view over the Loire river and an inevitable visit of a cellar to taste a glass of Saumur sparkling wine

  • Day 2

    Saumur – Thouars | 43 km

    First step along the water, from Loire Valley to the Thouet Valley, which presents beautiful cities of character. The fortified city of Montreuil-Bellay and Thouars on their rocky outcrops are the must-sees. In Taizon, the remarkable bridge of the 13th century is also to be seen

  • Day 3

    Thouars – Parthenay | 67 km

    Never far from the Thouet river, this bucolic and more rugged route allows to discover some gems of Romanesque Art like Saint Généroux or Airvault. Saint Loup, city of character, is also a must stop. His castle would have inspired the French Writer Charles Perrault. Shortly after, Cebron Lake is perfect for a relaxing break before arriving in the medieval town of Parthenay

  • Day 4

    Parthenay – Niort | 54 km

    A rural stage that combines remarkable heritage (Champdeniers-Saint-Denis and Collegiate of Saint Marc la Lande) and beautiful landscapes along the Sèvre Niortaise. Arriving in Niort, you are greeted by the 12th century dungeon and the large 19th century covered market, in Baltard style

  • Day 5

    Niort – Damvix | 35 km / option + 4 km

    Between land and sea, discover the charms of "Green Venice" and its small villages, including Coulon "small city of character". The Regional Natural Park of the Marais Poitevin is a place apart, poetic. A boat trip in this charming green labyrinth is a good time, a relaxing break

  • Day 6

    Damvix – La Rochelle | 57 km

    Ultimate stage of the “Vélo Francette”, the route stays true to the water. First Sèvre Niortaise to Marans, nice river city with its marina, its historic center and its futuristic bell tower. Continue on bike paths along the canal of Marans to arrive in apotheosis on the ocean and its magnificent beaches. The historic center of La Rochelle is full of architectural treasures
