The Active Gourmet Travel

The Essential Loire - bike, walk, drive

With its meandering rivers and lush green vineyards, fields of sunflowers and bountiful orchards, this mellow land of plenty has rightly earned the title of the 'Garden of France'. 

Although it’s best known for its numerous Renaissance chateaux, the Loire area has many charming little villages and picturesque towns – we’ll stay in several.

The people are friendly, and their French considered to be the most pure in the whole of France. 

During your active gourmet journey, you'll saunter beside the Loire, Indre, Cher and Vienne rivers, through mighty forests and poppy-filled fields.

You'll visit famed vineyards, often housed in limestone caverns, and pique-nique in the shadow of Sleeping Beauty's castle. You'll visit vibrant local markets selling an amazing array of produce. 

Sensational gourmet dining, invigorating activity and good company!
