So my wife and I have a little over 2 weeks in France in May, and we will have bikes. The plan is to cycle the Loire Valley for a bit, and then possibly head somewhere else in the country ("somewhere in Provence," and the Canal du Midi have both been suggested)

Some questions:
- Any suggestions of what's good along the Loire? We're still debating whether to start at Angers or there anything interesting we're missing between Angers and the coast?
- Does anyone have suggestions for other destinations. After the Loire, what we'll really want is some smaller towns, hopefully with quieter tourism scenes than the places I'm likely to hear about. As with other parts of the trip, we'll be mostly biking, so quiet back roads or greenways are important to us to get around, but we're really looking for a quiet experience somewhere that's beautiful and maybe has some good wine and ideally an "untouched by time" vibe.
