Discovering Touraine

By bike :

The “Loire à vélo” circuits are of course available to you at La Pénesais but also at the Chinon Tourist Information Center (Office du Tourisme). La Pénesais is located less than 200m from the “La Loire à vélo” circuit. La Pénesais benefits from the “Loire à vélo” label. Bicycles can be installed in the barn, at the end of the garden. We have all the necessary equipment to carry out small repairs or to inflate your bikes. For more information, see our page “Biking at La Pénesais” .
