Picture Perfect

The most popular chateau in the Touraine Loire Valley, especially for first time visitors, is Chenonceau. On summer days when it looks like this (below) why would you want to go anywhere else.

If you would like to book a tour that includes a visit to the magical chateau of Chenonceau, email us.

Glimpses into the Past

Because we specialise in small groups (maximum 4 people) we can be flexible and take advantage of things that come our way when we are out with clients. If you are interested in traditional building techniques there is often a building undergoing repairs in one of the villages as we pass. It's easy for us to stop and take a look. Likewise, if you are a cyclist, we may cross the path of a cycle race, giving us the opportunity to join the locals and cheer the riders on. There are lots of instances like this when our clients have experienced life in a French village in a way that bigger tours never encounter.

A conical roof is repaired in a small village where we often take clients.

If you are interested in how the passage of history becomes part of the present in Touraine Loire Valley villages, email us and we will design a tour that takes you off the beaten track and into hidden corners. You never know what you might be lucky enough to see.
