Located 30km south of Chinon, Loudun (Renaudot's home town) is renowned for its architecture, much of which dates back to the Middle Ages.  Exploring these treasures amongst the narrow and quaint streets is probably best accomplished by bike.

Dont miss the 13th century  La Porte du Martray, or the 11th century La Tour Carrée - the Square Tower. Marvel at the recently revealed 12th and 13th century murals in the  Chapel of Sainte-Croix.

Touring by bike, allows you to take your time and fully appreciate both the built and natural surroundings. Even if you have travelled without bikes, you can still get rented bikes delivered directly to your b&b, gite, hotel or tent!
