Welcome to Loire Valley Breaks - fully-escorted wine tours in the heart of the Loire Valley.
The Loire Valley is France's 3rd largest wine region, producing some of the best wines in France - Saumur, Chinon, Vouvray, St Nicolas de Bourgueil, Coteaux du Layon and Bourgueil.
Our tours are relaxed, convivial with plenty of tastings, meeting the winegrowers and enjoying the sights sounds and tastes of the valley.
Share with us great food, good company and fun times.
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 over 15 years. All the winegrowers we visit are known personally to us (many are our friends), ensuring us of a warm welcome wherever we go.
Our tours are designed for people who enjoy food and wine for pleasure and want to learn more. You will visit the wineries, but the most important things you need to know about a wine (in our opinion) are whether you like it and why that may be! You won’t be spending lots of time travelling, as in addition to the wines of St Nicolas produced on the doorstep, we are less than 20 minutes drive away from the other main local wine appellations.
You will stay in high quality accommodation for the length of your stay - a beautifully presented, fully renovated 19th century property with great views over the valley and the vines. Spacious, well-equipped guest areas inside and out and our assistance throughout your holiday. Your tour will take you past, and give you time to visit, historic towns and chateaux as well as the majestic Loire itself. You won’t just be visiting a couple of local growers – every day is planned out – making sure that we do exactly what we promise….and quite often more!
