Had a great half day kayaking on the Le Vienne river which meets the Loire river at Montsoreau. The weather was hit and miss, a little windy which did make rowing a little difficult sometimes, but well worth it. We took a picnic and had...More

This can get quite busy so book in advance (we were here during high season). You can combine bike & kayak/canoe trips, we think it's best to do this in advance. The staff was very friendly and we were still able to get our paddle...More
