Canoeing down the river Loir
Let’s head off to Châteaudun and the Club Canoë Kayak Dunois. For beginners, a stroll around the island to admire the stunning view of the castle of Châteaudun in an excellent way to start the day. What a sight! The imposing castle initially belonged to Jean de Dunois, the faithful companion of arms of Joan of Arc. After the canoe trip, a visit of the castle is a must! And why not try the Escape-Time Châteaudun for a good dose of family fun?
Fancy an amazing family adventure on the water? One of the best ways to experience the beauty of the river from Douy to Montigny-le-Gannelon is to float along in a canoe on an itinerary that leads to the spectacular Domaine de Montigny-le-Gannelon. Wow factor guaranteed! A perfect setting for a well-deserved picnic needed to recharge the batteries after enjoying this scenic river descent teeming with wildlife. Go go go!

You’d want to stay a full week in this splendid place to chill and reset. You’d probably even consider coming back with a bunch of friends on a special occasion next time!
