The Loire valley is well known throughout the world as being a great destination due in part to one of the most beautiful rivers anywhere in Europe. Beginning in the hills of Sancerre it meanders its way through this region of castles, palaces and fine mansions. Today, the entire Loire Valley is a World Heritage Site, as designated by UNESCO. This is slow travel at its finest. Life in Val de Loire calls you to slow your pace and take in its most striking feature; the beautiful views.
This is one of our more memorable trips. Good times spend with our family in an amazing setting. The small town of Sancerre with its historic Cathedrale beside the Loire River provided our home base. Thanks to family friends we were able to stay in a wonderful gite provided us a home for family gathering. Days were spent having Daisy take us for walks along the Loire river, or biking the green velo path along the Loire River from one town to another. Stopping at vineyards to enjoy wine tasting with the world class wines being produced in this region.
