Welcome to Loire Valley Breaks - escorted discovery breaks in the heart of the Loire Valley.
Follow the royal river as it flows majestically past châteaux and stately homes – along the riverbanks you will discover the wines of France's third largest wine region.
Sample the ambiance and of course the produce of the local markets, and visit the historical medieval towns, their museums and take time to meander, shop and watch the world go by from the open air cafés and restaurants.
If you are only in the region for a few days - maybe as part of a longer European visit - and really want to maximise your time and see as much as you can, without being rushed or herded around - you want flexibility to spend the time you want at each location - then this option gives you that possibility.
> Small, select tours
Using our transport, all tours are escorted with a maximum of 8 people per trip to ensure that you get personal attention. Your guide is knowledgeable, bi-lingual and has lived here for several years.
> Stay Local
You will stay in high quality accommodation for the length of your stay - a beautifully presented, fully renovated 19th century bed and breakfast property with great views over the valley and the vines. This is situated in the village of St Nicolas de Bourgueil, mid-way between the cities of Tours and Angers. You won’t be spending lots of time travelling, as we are extremely central – less than 20 minutes from Saumur, Chinon or Langeais and just 5 minutes from the Loire itself.
> Same price whenever you visit
It doesn’t cost us any more to provide your accommodation or tours whenever you visit, so we charge the same price all year round. We offer 5-night breaks, available all year round. You can start a tour on any day to suit you - so you may be able to take advantage of off-peak travel.
If you prefer a private tour just for your group or if you have special interests, then if we have space, we are happy to accommodate you on a tailor made tour.
