We love cycling and back in 2009 we self-cycled the Loire Valley Cycle Routes around Cheverney. It was a wonderful holiday, but at the same time difficult without a car. We wanted to visit France again and cycle further down the Loire and upon researching Loire Valley Breaks, found them to be just what we were looking for. Debbie and Mark were fantastic hosts. They gave us suggestions of train schedules and collected us from Port Boulet, the closest station from Bourgueil and drove us to our accommodation at L’Épaisse. That night they offered to drive us to the supermarket to buy supplies for our 10 day stay (7 of which were cycling tour). They were gracious enough to supply the bikes for the entire stay at no extra charge. On alternate days we were driven to Restaurants for our dinner or the supermarkets so we could cook at our accommodation. Each day Debbie would visit after breakfast with the day’s itinerary, route guides and maps. They were easily understood and the area was well signed, BUT we still got lost on 1 route!! We had some inclement weather so Debbie and Mark would swap the activities; instead of cycling we would be given a tour in the mini-van. On an other day when it was windy, we were driven to the village and cycled home, so the wind was at out back. This was extremely helpful. All along the way there were Chateaux, wineries and places of interest to stop at with their recommendations. This was such a wonderful trip and their knowledge of the area is brilliant. We were really looked after during the whole visit. Debbie and Mark have built up such good rapport with businesses in and around the area. Thank you so much for making this one of the best cycling experiences we have had. We hope to return.

Mark and Debbie were wonderful hosts and tour guides. Not only do they know the area well from having lived there for 16 years, they have forged relationships with people so when they bring you in as guests, you are mmediately welcomed and treated very well. We wine tasted and toured local attractions. As a very small group, we were able to incorporate some of our own requests into the itinerary as well as following Mark and Debbie's suggested itinerary. They helped us with the local laundramat, and facilitated shipping wine home. I can't believe you could find better tour guides for your vacation.

We had 5 days cycling with Loire Valley breaks, and 6 nights staying at the wonderful B&B at L'Epaisse. The cycling was well-planned and easily achievable for our daughters aged 12 and 14, leaving plenty of time for sightseeing and relaxing. Cycling was a good way to see the countryside, and mostly traffic free. Having back-up transport meant that we could do a mix of one-way routes and round trips, and see more of the area than if we'd been tied to a single-base or a different base every night, and it was great to have the bikes taken care of - we did have one small accident resulting in a bent wheel, which Mark sorted out with no fuss. We ate out 3 nights, with Mark and Debbie providing recommendations and transport, and cooked 2 nights, with trips to the shops provided - enjoyed a memorable barbecue on a lovely summer's evening, with some of their other guests. Mark and Debbie were extremely helpful and friendly hosts, and happy to flex their suggested itinerary around what we wanted to do. I'd certainly recommend this as a way to enjoy the Loire without having to drive.

Wonderful to see what we wanted to see at our own pace. Mark and Debbie were very knowledgeable guides. Their local knowledge is endless. Helped us choose and book restaurants. Our accommodation in the small village was comfortable with yummy French breakfast. A courtyard for relaxing and a very short walk to shops bars banks etc.

Thanks for taking the time to review your tour with us. I am pleased we were able to personalise your visits, so you could see all the places you wanted. We are able to go at our guests' pace, because we keep our tour numbers small, and this also means we can adapt our itinerary to suit personal interests. We have lived and worked here for 17 years, so have built up a good knowledge of the area and we love sharing this with our guests. I am pleased also that you enjoyed the accommodation - we use a small number of hand-picked places we feel our guests will love. I hope you are enjoying the rest of your French tour and wish you a safe onward journey, back home and to the cricket!

Having found Loire Valley Breaks through an internet search, it was the friendly and helpful response to our questions that led us to book a Discovery Tour. Mark was at the accommodation on our arrival in Bourgueil and went out of his way to make sure we were happy with the plan for the next few days. As we are interested in wine, Mark and Debbie managed to weave 8 tastings into the four day tour. Their detailed knowledge of the local area, the sights and the people meant that there was virtually no question they couldn’t answer. They booked us into some fantastic restaurants, all but one of which were 5 minutes walk or less from our accommodation. They made sure there were no language difficulties and that we had everything we needed to make it a very memorable few days. Thank you Mark and Debbie - we won’t hesitate to recommended you to our friends.

Thanks for your kind words. We enjoyed meeting you both and helping you discover the region we love so much. As you now know, there are plenty of wineries in the area and we were happy to take you to some of our favourites. We're also pleased you enjoyed the local restaurants; we are lucky that there is such a good variety on our (and therefore our guests') doorstep. We will be happy to have your friends book a tour with us and share with them some fun times.
