I don’t think I’ve ever seen the Loire so low in the 11 years that we’ve lived here. It was pretty low in 2011 but I don’t think it’s been this low.
If you’ve never been up in a hot air balloon, I can wholeheartedly suggest you give it try in the Loire valley.

We’ve teamed up with Franck and Sandra to offer our Loire Wine Indulgence – a mini break that comprises 2 nights accommodation at the Auberge and a full day’s wine tour with us. Cathy takes care of all the arrangements on your behalf so you can relax and enjoy a little peace and quiet in the countryside accompanied by some great wines and wonderful food.
Whether you’re in the Loire on holiday, staying in Paris, with family and friends or business colleagues – a day in the beautiful Loire countryside is always good for the soul.
It was such a beautiful morning that I popped down to the river early this morning to walk Sybil . Le Thoureil is one of the prettiest villages perched on the river Loire half way between Angers and Saumur and just a 15 minute walk from our home.
Yesterday was the annual Fête des Bateaux. The weather was pretty awful but this didn’t seem to dampen the spirits of the boatsmen and women who gathered in the pretty riverside village of Le Thoureil to celebrate life on the river.
Fancy sleeping on a boat on the river, moored in one of the prettiest riverside villages in the Loire valley?
