Joan of Arc Slept Here
"Chinon, exceptional wine, great castle and history"
If you are in the Loire Valley area I recommend a day in Chinon. Tour the castle where Joan of Arc asked to be made the lleader of the French army, take a tour of a winery built into the cliffs along the river, and have a picnic across the river from Chinon.
Need supplies? There is a very large grocery store across the river from Chinon. It is a short distance from the campground, which is clean and well run on a grassy area.
A good outing would be down river to Samur. Here is another beautiful castle and lots of wineries specializing in bubbly white wine.
