Hop on the TGV in Paris on the train that arrives in Angers at 09h24 and we’ll be there to meet you.  Take in the beautiful scenery as we drive along the riverside to our home and 16th century tasting room in the heart of the Anjou countryside.

We’ll spend the morning tasting a range of wines from all over the region.  6 different wines from 6 different appellations in the Loire together with lots of stories and anecdotes behind the personalities that make the wines and lots of information about the area.

Savour a homemade 3 course lunch with wine in our old barrel maturation cellar beneath the house.  Enjoy a selection of dishes creatively prepared using local ingredients sourced from our neighbouring potager, and herbs from our garden.

Spend the afternoon in the vineyard.  You’ll have the opportunity to taste wine and discuss vine growing and wine making directly with the producers.

At the end of the day we’ll drop you off at your Ecolodge, a beautiful cabin amongst the trees.  A delightful organic panier will be delivered to your cabin so you can unwind and enjoy dinner at your leisure accompanied of course by local wine from the region.

In the evening why not take advantage of the beautiful spa facilities at the Ecolodge de Loire.  You can indulge in a wood fired sauna and hot tub in the forest or book a massage.

Day Two

Start the day with a continental breakfast   Although your time with le tasting room is at an end, feel free to explore the beautiful village of Le Thoureil, walk in the woods, have a sauna or massage. Enjoy the gentle pace of life in this quaint hamlet. The owners of the Ecolodge will order you a taxi back to Angers at your leisure so do take the time to either cycle around the countryside or take some time to discover Angers, a small but delightful city with lots to offer.
