Test drive this two-day road trip for the best of the Loire
Collect your rental vehicle from Avis Car Hire Tours Val de Loire airport and drive east on the D751 road, following the river to nearby Amboise to visit Leonardo da Vinci's former home at the Château de Clos Lucé. Explore the winding, steep pathways of Blois before driving on south-west to the formidable grey towers of the Château d'Angers.

As you cross south over the River Maine and head back to Tours, park for a while at the troglodyte villages at Saumur for mushroom-tasting and in Chinon for piping hot fouée bread. Drop off your hire car back at Tours or if you are planning to travel from other airports, check our car hire locations in France.
