D 1
Day 1 – Arrival in BEAUGENCY.
This old, medieval city developed on the right bank of the Loire close to a raised bridge many, many centuries ago. Since, it has undergone numerous alterations. For a long time, this bridge was the only one on the Loire between Tours and Orléans and thus aroused much envy. The city was protected by a wall of which, in some places, there remain a few ruins, including the Porte Tavers. The square-shaped keep is a gorgeous example of the military architecture of the time. The walk through the old, medieval quarters are very pleasant, and the city offers much in historic monuments : the Abbey of Notre Dame, the Saint Firmin Church with its impressive bell-tower, and the Hôtel de Ville with its Renaissance façade. You will spend the day visiting the city and the château. Lodging and breakfast in a two-star hotel

Day 2 – BEAUGENCY – LA FERTE SAINT CYR (22 km – 5 hour walk)

From here, you will pass through the Boulogne National Forest and circle around the park of Chambord – enclosed by a 31-kilometer-long wall and reserved for hunting – to arrive at the Château de Villesavin. The château is a beautiful Renaissance structure that holds in its park a magnificent 16th-century pigeon-house.
