Hiking/walking in Sothern Touraine in the Loire Valley

Something that may not be widely known, is the French love for walking - their commitment to the 'Randonnée' is such, according to franceonfoot.com, that although the country is three times England’s size, it has more than eight times the mileage of public footpaths.

These are marked out  to make them easy to follow using colour coded symbols examples of which can be seen here http://www.cdrp37.fr/

There are organized walks throughout the season through beautiful countryside all over the region which for a small fee (normally around €3.00) you can join in with the local walkers or you can choose the self-guided walks offered throughout the region.
