apartment in Loire for a week

Bonjour, we are goi,ng to the Loire for about 10 days in July with our 2 kids 3, 1. We were hoping to make one base (or two bases) for the trip and hire a car to travel locally between villagespecially.

At this stage, my preference is for an apartment rather than a hotel

The kids are pretty stress free in terms of provisions needed etc.

I wanted to get some advice about which would make a good base ( or bases) and feasibility of such an idea.

I prefer something scenic and pretty.

In terms of schedulewe are thinking of 3 castles, a couple of wineries, and lots of markets, parks and fantastic food (though not Michelen).

Have a look at Booking.com and you will get a rough idea of apartments in the area and the price if you have a car then either Tours or Chinon would suit.

I assume you are asking about a gîte. They can be rented by the week but are typically rented for the month. Here are a few sources:

There is quite a useful holiday camp type place just outside Amboise. http://villabellagio.fr/amboise/index.html
