    walk Saumur

    by gwened Written Mar 28, 2014

    Favorite thing: another nice compact town in the loire region, and the best to see it again is to walk it.

    All along the Loire river is fantastic, and go into the city center with its wooden houses and great old bar like the le Richelieu at 9 Place Saint-Pierre;

    the views of the Loire from the castle are wonderful,and it has a nice size and beautiful mayor's office or mairie with great architecture and nice big clock tower.

    walk it ,its good for you and the memories will linger more.

    Fondest memory: all the area around the castle and the Loire river is wonderful.

    Walk Angers

    by gwened Written Mar 27, 2014

    Favorite thing: again another wonderful city of the Loire and France,and again, lovely to walk around the river maine and the old castle over to the Cathedral;

    one of the best ways to see a city or town or village is walk, and with little time to see these beauties you better see it on foot up close and personal.

    along the river Maine, and also at the house of Adam or Maison d'Adam a wooden house built in 1431, located at the crossing of the rue Montault,and the place Sainte-Croix, just behind the Cathedral. It is from 1990, the Maison des Artisans d'Angers or the house of artisans of Angers.

    Fondest memory: views from the other side of the maine looking at the castle and from castle view to the maine and cale de savatte boats.

    walking sights of Blois

    by gwened Written Oct 27, 2013

    Favorite thing: personal photos from the boxes, still more to find and cd"s but for now this is the ones of Blois

    here the castle is it, but I rather take the visitor to the esplanade by the Cathedral of Saint Louis and the park Diane near the castle two wonderful areas to walk and see the daily life of this old city.

    walking is great and we love it, you learn more ::)

    Fondest memory: walking around the cathedral enplanade and front of parc hotel de ville with the huge statue of Joanne d'Arc and looking over Blois as she defended it. Lovely.

    Favorite thing: yes train is available as already posted. The TER is good for schedules choosing, you buy your tickets at

    although is it best to be done by car as I do.

    as to wine there is the maison du vin in Sancerre with all tastings
    this place explains the wines in English
    http://www.terroir-france.com/region/loire_sancerre.htm

    this tells you all the domaines or wine houses in Sancerre in French
    http://www.vins-centre-loire.com/caves-producteurs/liste.asp

    my personal favorites are ,
    Domaine Henri Bourgeois
    Domaine Pascal Jolivet
    Domaine Marnier-Lapostolle
    Domaine Naudet et Fils
    Domaine Vacheron

    and for a general tasting in the maison as told you above try
    Cave des Vins de Sancerre

    hope it helps, a nice region and good wines.I am into it ;;)

    Plenty of castles

    by Helga67 Written Feb 25, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: This part of France is renowned for its somptuous castles. The density of castles and all their great Renaissance intrigues and associations can prove quite intimidating, but if you pick your castles selectively, and spend days on the Loire river banks with supplies of cheese, fruit and Loire wines, the Loire can be one of the most enjoyable of all French regions.
