      Visiting the Castles of the Loire Valley

      Pays de la Loire Jan 15, 2014 at 2:21 AM

      I'm strongly considering adding the Loire Valley to my list of destinations in France next month. I have two major questions:

      1. Would Orleans be the most central place to stay to visit the bulk of them?

      2. Can you recommend any formal castle tour companies or individuals, with whom you have PERSONALLY had a good experience? I'd be interested in either single day or multiple day tours.

      Best way to see the Loire

      Loiré Nov 2, 2013 at 6:07 AM

      I am thinking about, as a possible option, the Loire valley for 2015. If I was to do this, how is the best way to do it?
      Should I take a tour or can it somehow be done more independently? I should point out, I do not drive.

      Trying to decide between Amboise and Saumur as our base in the Loire.

      Pays de la Loire Oct 14, 2013 at 3:27 PM

      Hi folks!
      We are making plans for a spring trip to visit the Dordogne and the Loire Valley. We've got our first two weeks covered in the Dordogne region, but are trying to decide which place to stay in the Loire - Amboise to the east or Saumur to the west. Both have their advantages and disadvantages. Can anyone offer any help on this one?

      We want to stay someplace where we can walk to dinner and around town. We'll travel about during the days by car.

      Thanks in advance!

      How to reach Fontevrault-l'Abbaye by bus from Tours on a Saturday in late November

      Fontevrault-l'Abbaye Sep 12, 2013 at 2:44 PM

      I am traveling by public transportation (I don't drive) and would like to reach Fontevrault-l'Abbaye from Tours on a Saturday morning. After visiting the Abbaye, I would like to proceed by bus to Saumur. I've been looking at the agglobus website and haven't found a solution. I considered going from Tours to Saumur and then taking a bus, but it seems that the earliest train from Tours to Saumur arrives 15 minutes after the bus departs from Saumur to the Abbaye. So my other solution is to go by bus from Tours directly to the Abbaye. I tried calling the tourist office in Saumur but my French is poor and we didn't understand each other. Perhaps it is impossible but I thought I'd check in with the helpful people here to see if you know of a solution. Thanks in advance!

      Visiting Loire area in Nov, want to eat local, seasonal foods from markets and shops

      Pays de la Loire Sep 7, 2013 at 12:55 PM

      My spouse and I will be in the Loire region mid-November, specifically Tours, Saumur, and Angers. We like to eat local specialties and food from the farmer's market and would love your recommendations for what to eat in November. We prefer to go to bakeries and specialty markets, rather than restaurants. We love street food. We don't have any way to cook, so the food would have to be prepared or easy to prepare without cooking. We especially enjoy regional oils and most importantly, cheese. Thanks in advance for your recommendations!

      Ouistreham to Angers

      Angers Jun 21, 2012 at 5:05 AM

      We will actually be travelling on Saturday 7 July from the ferry port in Ouistreham to Blaison-Gohier 49320 - not far from Angers.

      I have checked distance and driving times on both viamichelin and theaa route planners.
      They both give the distance as about 275 km. Routes look similar but driving time on viamichlin is given as 4hours 40 minutes and only just over 3 hours on theaa site.
      As we won't dock until 11.30am the shorter time would be preferable and I find that time difference hard to understand.

      Can any regular French road users please advise - psmalo, gwened. anyone...?

      Paris - Nantes highway traffic/toll cost

      Nantes Jun 3, 2012 at 4:03 PM

      We are plannig a holiday in Saint-Jean-de-Monts from 14th of July. Since we don't just want to sit on the beach we definately want to rent a car. However we are undecided where to pick it up.
      Since the rental cost is the same it makes sence to pick up at Paris airport and drive all the way.
      On the other hand TGV is faster to Nantes and don't need to do the driving. But for 2-2,5 hours the price tag seems to be high. Obviously if large traffic (jam) is already expected than it is another pro on the TGV side.
      When will the holidays start in France? Can we expect a normal flow of traffic on 14th of July from Paris to Nantes? Or is it likely that the drive will take more time than what Google/Michelin calculates with?
      Also what is the highway cost from Paris CDG to Nantes? (to compare apple to apple: TGV price vs. driving cost).

      Thanks in advance

      It appears as if I've left it too late to book accommodation for the Le Mans 2012 motogp round.

      Can anyone help with possible options for accommodation close to the track? It will be two people travelling, we will have a car and aren't too fussy with accommodation. Probably mid range would suit us best.

      I also heard some locals open up their doors for the events. Is there a website where there might be some information for this?
