Biking Loire Valley, Stay in Amboise?

Jump to last reply

I'm planning a week long self-contained bike vacation of the Loire Valley for DH and I for early next fall. We plan to stay in an apartment in one central location and do loop rides rather than point to point rides that require frequent accommodation changes. We'll take some loop rides from our base and on other days I think we'll take the train to Blois or Tours to start riding from there. At home, we ride about 55-75 miles a day on similar terrain as the Loire. Amboise seems to be central to some of the most popular chateaus and is between Blois and Tours. Am I on the right track in choosing to stay in Amboise? Would Tours be a better option? Any other suggestions for a base town?
