Chinon is undoubtedly one of the very best cities to explore a medieval castle. However there are lots of treasures in the beautiful French town and getting around on a rented bike will definitely open up a whole new spectrum of opportunities for you. Chinon was the home of Henry II King of England from 1133 to 1189.
It is said that Joan of Arc first met Charles VII here in 1429 and since then it hasn’t really changed that much, keeping its medieval charm in the guise of the beautiful quarter which can be appreciated best by bike. The narrow lanes and black slate roofs make this a must for cyclists who love wine because Chinon is Loire’s main wine-producing area.
