I'll be arriving at Tours end of March on my own, though would probably stay at Loches. I will be in the area a week, and really want to take it easy. My initial thoughts were to rent a bike, but I haven't ridden in years, and there are sure to be slopes and I somehow dont relish the thought of hauling a bike on my own, especially when it might rain.
But I love the idea of just taking in the smaller villages, walking around in the hopefully warm sunshine. Something that I would not be able to do on a guided castle tour.
But all through the forum, I have seen recommendations for hiring a car. So, the Big Question.
Are there any kinds of public transport between villages? How infrequent? What is the last bus/lunch break/ weekend break etc?
