New for 2015! We have formed a partnership with world reknowned cheese refiner Rodolphe le Meunier and are now able to offer tours which include a private cheese tasting or wine and cheese pairing session.
Hard mountain cheeses maturing in Rodolphe's controlled atmosphere cellars.
Rodolphe works from surprisingly modest premises just down the road from the iconic chateau of Chenonceau, so it is easy to combine a wonderful chateau visit with a very special opportunity to taste the best cheeses France has to offer. Either Rodolphe or his assistant will personally take the tasting sessions.
If you love cheese, make sure you email us and let us know. We will design a tour for you that includes this very special experience.
Our clients in July and August really enjoy the fields of sunflowers which are widely grown here as a commercial crop. They love that we have the flexibility to turn off onto a narrow country road and stop to photograph the impressive yellow flowers.
Martha and her daughters Sharon and Laura had fun photographing each other, Célestine and the sunflowers between Loches and Chenonceau one day in mid July. If you would enjoy a similar experience, email us and book a tour for July or early August. We'd be delighted to use our local knowledge to show you the most photogenic patch of sunflowers in the area.
Join us in our classic Citroen cars for a tour of the Touraine Loire Valley. Early birds are rewarded by getting their 2015 tour at 2014 prices if they book and pay in full before the end of March. Email us to book now!
