Proceeding down the Loire, which got more languid and 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 the last few kilometres of its life, before it flowed into the Loire. This took us to the picturesque village of Savonnières.
