Enjoy an amazing week in the beautiful Loire Valley.  The Loire Valley is where the French royalty preferred to spend their time. The Valley of a Thousand Châteaux is also the home to many outstanding wines. Come with us and explore the Grand Chateaux, the palaces, the abbeys and the castles. We will indulge in the local cuisine and learn (and taste!) the wines for which the Loire Valley is famous!


Our stay was highlighted by waking up each morning to the birds singing outside our room’s window. All the excursions included sights and locations we would never have been able to find on our own and were delightful additions to our daily schedule. The most memorable meals were the picnics created by our hosts which were held in local parks in beautiful locations. The food was great and the whole experience was a lot of fun. Our excursion for a wine tasting with lunch in a troglodyte cave was the most interesting and one of the most unusual stops of the entire trip. Norm and Dana
