The Loire Valley region

La Touraine conjugue l'histoire à tous les temps, des vestiges préhistoriques aux joyaux de la renaissance : le patrimoine architectural en est la preuve (vieux Tours, les 120 châteaux du département...). Indissociables des Châteaux de la Loire, les nombreux jardins sont le reflet de ces différentes époques.

Vous serez au coeur de la plus longue route des vins de France sur 800 kms : Chinon, Bourgueil, Saint Nicolas de Bourgueil, Saumur, Montlouis, Vouvray, Azay le Rideau, Touraine.... Inscrite au Patrimoine Mondial de l'Humanité par l'UNESCO, la Loire est balisée pour un intinéraire à vélo tout en sécurité.

La Vallée de la Loire est connue pour être le jardin de la France où sont produits les fruits et légumes que l'on retrouve sur les marchés locaux, à côté des fromages de chèvre de Sainte Maure, et autres charcuteries (rillettes et rillons de Touraine).

"Loire Valley Gem"

We enjoyed a wonderful week at La Maison Marissou. The sun shone for our whole stay and we made full use of the private garden, eating outside every night. The house is in a beautiful village which … More

Bonsoir Sarah,
It is with pleasure that I share with my sisters this lovely comment.
Eating in the outdoors after a long winter and a spring without a name, I understand perfectly your happiness.
Furthermore, the circuit of the Loire bike is very easy for everyone, so close to the châteaux and vineyards that make the reputation of this part of France.
I am pleased that the cottage, its scenery, and the garden charmed you, we may be lucky to see you again in the futur.
best regards

Chère famille Mc Ginty.
Your comment is for us more than a compliment, because it is not your first time in the Loire Valley.
We put all our experience, our love in our home.
It is the image of what visitors from over sea can expect from a cottage village, with its butcher, baker's, small bars, and small market Tuesday morning ...
Merci beaucoup
Your host
