Places to visit in the Loire – Amboise
Amboise is about half an hour from Tours (TGV station, airport) and is a lovely small town perched on the river Loire. A good place to base yourself for a short break if you’re looking for a smaller, quaint place.
Festival de la Tomate at Chateau de Bourdaisière
I didn’t even know there were 650 varieties of tomato let alone somewhere that grows them all. Well, Chateau de Bourdaisière has a festival every year to celebrate this wonderful fruit (or is it?). We paid a visit yesterday to join in the celebrations.
