Chateau Soucherie

Ones of the best spots in the Loire on a sunny day is Chateau Soucherie.  Perched in the hills of the Layon with the river flowing below, the chateau has some of the best views across the countryside that I can think of.


Wonderful views across the hills of the Layon valley


This sunny hot weather is just what we need in Anjou


Cabernet Franc grapes are looking healthy and tasting sweet – not long to harvest now


The chateau – it’s possible to stay here too as there are several nicely decorated rooms

The chateau is passing through the vineyards at the moment leaf stripping and making sure the fruit is well exposed to the sun


A lovely spot to enjoy a glass of wine while enjoying the fabulous views
