This short section was distinguished by our constant changing from one river to another, all tributaries of the Loire.
We started on the Cher, followed it down to its confluence with the Loire near Villandry, then crossed the plateau to the valley of the Indre at Azay-le-Rideau. Then we went through an enormous forest and came out at Chinon, on the river Vienne.
