Summer in the Loire and only a few hours away really.
We are just outside beautiful Saumur in the community of Doué La Fontaine, the French national centre for rose growing and the largest such area for Europe- seven million roses perhaps can't be wrong.
Just outside the town is our tranquil Loire chambres d'hote.
The Loire is not only a prime wine producing area but also an amazing holiday location for cycling, horse riding, painting,hiking/pilgrimage routes and golfing. You are also within easy reach of the cities of Tours and Angers and close to ""must see"" historic Chinon, Fontevraud and the famous Loire chateaux.
The Loire Valley is a UNESCO world heritage site abounding with history, culture, fine cities, vineyards, friendly people and classic French countryside.
