The Loire by bike
Discover the chateaux of the Loire from the hotel
Located on the Loire bicycle route, Hotel Lanex in Amboise has a secure shed to keep your bikes safe. Battery charging facilities are also available.
The Loire river, a stone’s throw from the hotel, winds its way slowly along the Loire Valley, with some 900 km of bicycle routes. Come with your own bike or hire one in Amboise for an easy and light way to get around. You can visit the towns and monuments of the Loire by bike, and enjoy the heritage listed landscape, clement weather just perfect for cycling and the Amboise chateau or Le Clos Lucé.
The routes are all designed and sign-posted so that cyclists can explore safely and with peace of mind. Enjoy the peaceful landscapes and listen to the sound of the wind in your ears as you ride along the wild and wonderful river that runs through the Loire Valley, and along the way discover some of the finest chateaux such as Amboise, Chenonceau, which is built over and reflected in the Cher river, and Chaumont-sur-Loire. Along your journey, you will also discover the Touraine vineyards and troglodyte caves.
