Finishing Lionheart at the Fontevraud Abbey

It would have been possible to go more directly from Amboise to Fontevraud but most of the group opted to visit the historic and pretty town of Chinon, hence the significant deviation you can see in the map above. I’ll talk more about that later.

We left later than we normally would because Francesca had arranged for us to have a sit-down meal at a restaurant on the banks of the Loire River.
