Proceeding down the Loire, which got wider, shallower and more meandering with every passing day, we visited the royal town of Amboise and the little wine centre of Vouvray, then passed through the great sprawling mass of Tours and followed the river Cher for its last few kilometres before flowing into the Loire. This took us to the picturesque village of Savonnières.
