The Loire Valley region

The Loire Valley is one of France's most impressive regions. The area is steeped in history and its rich heritage is obvious from the numerous famous Chateaux for which it is rightly famed. The Wine from this region is famous throughout the world and there are many caves you can visit and sample the variety before making your selection. More recently added to the tourist attraction of the area are a number of fine quality Golf courses.  You can enjoy a round of golf at the Golf de Touraine which is only 15 mins away by car.

Tours

Tours, a Gallo-Roman town, then the capital of the kingdom of France in the 15th and 16th centuries, reveals its extraordinary artistic and architectural heritage. The quaint Plumereau quarter with its cobbled roads, its old cafés and half-timbered houses. Wander through its streets by day or night and discover the town, its flower market, antique shops in the old town, flea markets, squares with their open-air entertainment and food markets.

Try the many wines in this region.  Azay-le-Rideau, Chinon, Bourgueil and Saint-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil invite you to discover their vineyards.

Come and stroll through the gardens of the Chateau Villandry or relive your childhood tales in the Sleeping Beauty château of Rigny-Ussé.  Admire the château of Azay-le-Rideau, set in the Indre.  Even more imposing, from the top of its rock spur, the château of Chinon, residence of the Plantagenets, which has been visited by so many illustrious characters.

If you love beautiful villages, you will be delighted by some villages ranked among the most beautiful in France. Candes-Saint-Martin, nestling at the confluence of the Vienne and the Loire, Crissay-sur-Manse, not forgetting Villaines-les-Rochers, renowned for its artisanal basketwork. Or according to La Fontaine 'the most beautiful village in the universe'  Richelieu

"Sunshine, Water and Adventure"

What a wonderful getaway! Nestled just off the Rue de Montbazon is a great location surrounded by water. The owners were friendly, multi-lingual and very well informed on all the best places to go for sight seeing, restaurants, and local events. Even better they were very helpful on determining the best mode of transportation to go. Some places were better accessed by bikes, some for walking (and photos) and others by car. The lodgings were spacious and clean and the grounds provided paths for walking near the water and for peaceful reflections. You can go kayaking, fishing or go swimming (in the pool). You could be as active or as passive as you desired. Some of the best memories are simply sitting by the water, watching the Kingfisher dive for his lunch and talking with friends while sipping a nice Chinon. If you go once, you will go again!
