Staying in Paris and fancy a change of scenery? The Loire valley is famous for its beautiful architecture, wonderful wines and gentle pace of life.
All of our Loire wine day tours are available as day trips from Paris. Hop on the TGV and you can be in the heart of the Loire countryside in just an hour and a half. And why not make a short break of it and stay for a couple of days.
Relax, unwind and enjoy the calm beauty of the Loire valley. Spend a day in Angers, a lively city with a lovely pedestrianized centre, ancient chateau and great choice of restaurants. Or simply enjoy the peace and tranquility of this wonderful region in the heart of the countryside close by the river.
Getting here is easy. The TGV offers a direct service from Montparnasse to Angers St Laud. Book your tickets in advance on www.sncf.com and print off an e-ticket. This will save you time and stress and e-tickets don’t need composting at the station before you board the train.
The Metro system is Paris is quick and efficient but if you are worried about getting to the station on time then we highly recommend Greg of Chauffeur Services. Greg speaks good English and can pick you up and drop you off from your hotel giving you peace of mind and a comfortable journey. If you are considering a short break, Greg can drive you directly from Paris to the Loire valley (3 hours).
