This section starts on the Loire, takes in a stretch of the Cher, then returns to the Loire. The area is full of châteaux, notably Blois, Chenonceaux and Amboise, and the countryside is gently undulating, with large plantings of wine grapes as well as other crops. At Tours the track turns south, crosses the Cher again and arrives at the Indre.
