• Favourite places in the Loire valley

One of our favourite spots just down the road from us here at le tasting room.  St Mathurin is a pretty riverside village overlooking the river Loire.  We often sit on the bank from where I took this picture and admire the sunlight on the cream limestone buildings along the riverside.  When we collect our Paris day trippers from Angers we always drive back along the north side of the river Loire.  The journey hugs the north bank of the river all the way along until you reach this pretty village where we cross the river to the south side of the Loire and make our way to our little hamlet, Cumeray.  I’ve posted this photo before – I just love the colours and the reflections on the water.
