We had a holiday on the Loire a couple of years ago.
Started inland (Sancerre) and worked our way towards the coast (Muscadet).
We only got as far as Saumur in two weeks... To much wine to taste, too many Chateau gardens to visit, too many markets to browse :P
Our holidays in France tend to be very wine orientated (hence the Sancerre to Muscadet above
), and we love France Passion sites, but we only actually stayed on one France Passion site in the whole two weeks.
But that one site I highly recommend; in Chavignol (Sancerre), which has the bonus of being a cheese town as well as being in our favourite Loire wine location. If anything cheese is a bigger passion than wine with us
So only one FP in two weeks?
We always choose sites where you can walk into a town or village - the Chavignol site (will look the specific site up if you want - there are several) was right in the centre of the village.
All the other FPs we looked at on the Loire were on estates a couple of miles walk from habitation, so although we tasted and bought wine, we moved on to the nearest town/village muni to stay. Aires were impossibly full in August. But if you want any non-FP site recommendations happy to give you some.
