I am really struggling here. Am hoping someone can offer me some good tips.
I am trying to book a week - or a little longer - for us in the Loire Valley region. Two adults and three kids (boys, aged 10, 12 and 13). We must have warm weather - I have had two rained out trips already this year. We would like to be able to visit towns of interest, lots of chateaux, we like lots of stuf really. We also plan to spend a lot of time loafing around by the pool (another must have) and drinking wine!
We are taking the car - my plan so far, is Dover to Calais, One night in Paris (hotel on ourskirts so we can park up) and then drive on to somewhere in the Loire region. We want to stay in a cottage/gite but am baffled by the choice as i have absolutely no idea on the districts. I have been reading up a little but still stumped.
any pointers would be great!
Thanks in advance
