This road starts a run from the Le Mans circuit down towards Tours and sweeps through the beautiful rural Loire valley. The landscape is green and rolling, and this section has a few nice corners, (although beware, heavily policed during motorsport weekends at the circuit)

Campsite Le Bounty is nice in this area, about 6kms south of the circuit and next to a peaceful lake. The site is run by friendly Brits who are keen fishing enthusiasts. A pleasant change from the campsite chaos at the circuit if youre there watching the racing, worth a look.
