Loire Valley Castles Tour from Paris with Lunch and Wine Tasting

Paris – Chateau de Chambord – Chateau de Nitray – Chateau de Chenonceau – Paris

We’re going to zip out of town to our first site: Chateau de Chambord. You’ll hear about this castle’s weird history-once intended as a king’s hunting lodge-and climb the staircase that Leonardo da Vinci was supposed to have designed. Then you will have some free time to explore yourself more of the castle. Climb to the roof for spectacular views between the towers or even walk around the grounds.

Having worked up an appetite, it’s back on the bus and on to our next stop: the Chateau de Nitray in the 15th century, where you can enjoy a guided degustation of the wines of the family. You’ll appreciate a broad variety of white and red wines and even a sweet dessert wine with a true expert’s degustation notes. When we sit down for lunch, there will be more wine (unlimited): a hearty three-course meal served by our hosts with traditional French rural dishes.

We will take a guided tour of the wine-making installations as well as the tiny, private family chapel and pigeon house after coffee and dessert, learning about the wine-making tradition in France along the manner.

Our last stop is a tour of the Chateau of the Ladies, Chateau de Chenonceau, an elegant castle of the 16th century that with its smooth white stone and intricate painted wooden door will steal your heart at first sight. Inside the castle, initial stone sculptures, huge tapestries and an intimate chapel are well maintained. The castle grounds and many gardens are almost equivalent in beauty, planted by the renowned women who owned and named the Ladies ‘ Chateau.
