Wine Tasting AND Chateaux - Itinerary? Best Locations?

Jump to last reply

Our extended family group will be traveling to France in the summer next year for about 12 days. Some of us are interested in seeing the famous chateaux of the Loire Valley, while others are more interested in tasting some great wines, perhaps in Burgundy. Is it feasible to visit both areas in this time frame? We are thinking of renting a villa for a week in one location, and then perhaps moving to a hotel in another location for a few more days. Any suggestions on how to split our time? Would we be better off renting a villa in Burgundy for a week, and then going to the Loire Valley for just a few days, or vice versa? Amboise seems to be recommended as a good central base for the Loire chateaux area. Any suggestions for a good base in Burgundy for wine tasting? Thanks for any suggestions.
