Burgundy or Loire Valley?

Jump to last reply

We are a group of 10 taking an A&K barge tour in October 2016 ending in Venarey, France.
We would like to rent a house for a week afterwards, in either Burgundy or Loire Valley.
Is there an advantage to either region at this time of year? What towns would be best?
Ideally we would like to rent a house where we could walk into town, enjoy local restaurants and purchase provisions. Will will not be renting a car, and will arrange transportation for day tours or other activities.
Our interests include touring vineyards, bicycling, visiting castles, cathedrals, cooking classes.
We also want to cook at 'home'.
Can anyone share their experience renting a house in these areas?
I have never been to either, so I am a bit lost. Would love to rely on the experience of fellow Fodorites.
Any recommendations would be appreciated.
