Hello. My husband and I will arrive in The Loire on a Eurail Pass so we can get off at any of the stations in the Loire. Can anyone suggest which town is best to make a base for 5 days 4 nights or should we stay at 4 different places? What is the best way to get around? After reading a few forums thus far I am thinking a car hired through the suggested website. We want a bit of freedom to poke about and linger and not to always be on guided tours. If we went from place to place using the rail system would that give us a good coverage of the Valley or is a car really going to open up the Valley to us? Thank you.
