Day 1 - Arrival in La Rochelle
La Rochelle, city remarkable for its history, is lively and touristic. You can enjoy the old port and its towers, which kept the entrance of the city from 13th to 15th century. The city center with its arcades and the town hall date from the 15th century. La Rochelle is served by the TGV.

Day 2 - Loop of the Ile de Ré - 30 to 90 km
Loop tour to "île de Ré", which passes by the lovely villages of "La Flotte en Ré" (dating from the 18th century) with its fishing boats and St. Martin with its fortifications and its fort. You will follow the oyster farms, the salt marshes and the nature reserve of Lilleau des Niges. Back by the Couarde and "Le Bois Plage".

Dinner and night in La Rochelle. Hotel**


Day 3 - From La Rochelle to Marennes. 59 to 70 km - 
The cycling route of this day runs along the coast and passes through the lively towns of Chatelaillon and Fouras. It then branches off through the nature reserve of "Baie d'Yves". In Fouras, possibility to take the ferry to the "île d'Aix" and visit this small island that hosted the last retreat of Napoleon I.

Before arriving in Marennes the path takes you through Rochefort. This city, created in the 17th century around the shipbuilding makes you enjoy the original and unique bridge transporter Eiffel. The route continues on the bike paths of the most beautiful coast of western France.

Night in Marennes. Hotel ***


Day 4 - From Marennes to Royan 48 km

By the bike path, you cross the pine forests of the "wild coast", go through the town of "La Palmyre" where you can visit the Zoo. It is easy to observe the animals. You arrive at Royan by Saint Palais, the beaches of Vaux sur Mer, Pontaillac, and the marina. A stage marked by the intoxicating smell of maritime pines. Royan is a modern seaside town that hides some lovely villas, an original covered market and a festive and lively waterfront.

Night in Royan. Hotel ***


Day 5 - From Royan to Mortagne sur Gironde 35 km

Exit Royan, here is the coast of the cliffs at the bottom of which are hidden charming small wild ports : Talmont sur Gironde, craft village flower, or Meschers and cave troglodythes. Change of scenery, again the coast shows us a different face and his smile seduces us.

Dinner, night and breakfast a lovely guest house .


Day 6 - From Mortagne sur Gironde to Blaye (or close) 60 km

You enter a wine-growing region and pass near the productions of pineau and cognac and on two appellations of Bordeaux :  "les côtes de Blaye" and "les côtes de Bourg". This landscape of vineyards slightly wavy, small winding roads where a windmill dresses the perspective, is a real postcard decor ! Back on the banks of the estuary of the Gironde, to Blaye to discover its famous citadel built by Vauban.

Dinner, night and breakfast in a charming guest house.


Day 7 - From Blaye to Bordeaux 50 km

Road to Bourg-sur-Gironde, along the "Corniche Fleurie". A visit is essential to lovers of beautiful stones: Bourg sur Gironde is a jewel of architecture.

Accommodation located in the heart of the vineyards of Côtes de Bourg in bed and breakfast of charm.
