La Route du Sel – Le Thoureil

Winter wine tours in the Loire
Wineries start to shut their doors after harvest has finished but here at le tasting room, we offer a day tour that is perfectly suited to the chilly winter weather.
Boat trips on the river Loire
We sometimes complain a little – restaurants close on a Sunday evening and all day Monday, everything grinds to a halt during August, people don’t speak English.

New Cafe opens today in Le Thoureil
Great news – the riverside café in Le Thoureil opposite the church has reopened today under new ownership. It’s been completely refurbished and will be open more often which is great for us as the previous owners only seemed to open at weekends (if they felt like it). This spot is right on the riverside and is hard to beat.
