This is a brief overlay of our Loire Valley stops. We have packed in a lot, and are interested in suggestions. We have also made cuts from our original plan in this part of France. The three Chateaus’ we’d prefer to keep if we can’t make the other two fit into our time table are: Asay Le Rideau, Chateau Chenonceau, and Chambord.
Day 1 –Leave Dinan early morning, - tour Villandry gardens only, next Asay Le Rideau Chateau – overnight Asay le Rideau - Long day
Day 2 – Leave Asay Le-Ridea, drive south to Villaines-les-Rochers, for a brief visit , and up to visit Chateau Chenonceau to tour castle and grounds. Hopefully, we can find a vineyard to visit in this area. Stay this night between here and Cheverny.
Day 3 – Visit Chateau Cheverny and Chambord Chateau.
Unfortunately, with our timetable, this is all we can allow in this beautiful area, so hopefully this itinerary will give us a little of the experience here. We will be heading to Alsace from Chambord, so are considering stopping around Beaune for that night . Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions.
