PRIVATE LOIRE VALLEY TOURS

Private excursion, chauffeur guide and vehicle from 09:30AM to 05:30PM.

Private tour.

Chateaux of Chenonceau and Chambord.

Our recommendation for the train if you come from Paris: TGV n°8407 - departure from Paris Montparnasse train station at 07h40 and arrival at Saint Pierre des Corps train station at 08:45AM.

Pick up at Saint Pierre des Corps train station or at your hotel located in the Loire Valley (between Tours and Blois).

 10.00AM: Guided tour of the Castle of Chenonceau.

The unique architecture of the Chateau makes it one of the most exquisite Chateaux in the Loire Valley. Nicknamed “the ladies castle », Chenonceau is related to important French women such as Catherine de Medici. The magnificent Renaissance gardens around it make it even more spectacular.

11:30AM: Tour and wine tasting (INCLUDED) and lunch (NOT INCLUDED - OPTIONAL 74,00€ per person).

You are welcomed in Caves Duhard established in 1874. Its owner and wine maker Daniel Gatay is specialized in mature Vouvray wines. You can discover a large range of vintages, from 1947 to our days. Made of chenin blanc the Vouvray is a mineral wine with a high acidity level which gives to the wine a great aging capacity.

This meal is based on the discovery of Loire Valley wines around a tasting of local products.
• 3 white wines paired with cheeses.
• 2 or 3 red wines (Bourgueil, Saint Nicolas de Bourgueil, Chinon) paired with meat.
• 1 semi dry o sweet dessert wine.

02:30PM: Guided tour of the Castle of Chambord.

In the middle of a forest as large as the city of Paris Chambord was the first Loire Valley chateau listed in the world heritage by UNESCO. Ordered in 1519 by King Francois I, with 426 rooms, 77 staircases and 282 fireplaces, it is the largest castle in the region. Leonardo da Vinci is the creator of its incredible double helix staircase.

At the end of the day, transfer back to Saint Pierre des Corps train station or to your hotel located in the Loire Valley.
