Loire Valley - 3 day itinerary help (including wine and birthday)!

Jump to last reply

I'm slowly piecing together my trip to France for two weeks with my Mother and am onto the Loire Valley leg of our journey (previous post for Provence was great, thanks to all!). We will be there for three days, arriving on a Tuesday and leaving on Friday, planning to stay in Amboise at Hotel Le Manoir les Minimes. We are interested in seeing the chateau's, Chenonceau and Villandry are on the list, but would also like to enjoy some of the wine of the region. Also, it's my Mother's birthday, the Wednesday we are there, so I'd like to do something special, maybe a cool tour, a wine lunch, or spa (no hot air balloon she's not fond of heights). My goal for the three days is to try to visit a chateau early, then stop for lunch and/or wineries in the general area in the afternoon. Any suggestions? Also any other thoughts on where to stay (under $250 if possible but something nice since this is the bday hotel), we’re not tied to Le Manoir les Mimes.
