5 Days in the Loire - Where to Go?

Jump to last reply

My fiancé and I are planning a 2-week honeymoon in France, beginning with 5 days in the Loire and spending the rest of our time in Paris. We selected the Loire for the first leg of our trip because we wanted to start off with somewhere that was relaxing and not too far from Paris. Plus, we both love wine and have been drinking and loving a ton of Loire Valley wine this past year.

I'm having trouble wrapping my head around where we should stay during our trip. We both really like the idea of hopping around to several different towns/cities to get a feel for a variety of areas in the region, but we certainly don't want to spend hours on end driving from point A to point B. Here is my initial itinerary:

Day 1: Land in CDG in the morning. Rent a car and drive to somewhere near Blois/Cour-Cheverny. See Chateau de Chambord.
Day 2: Spend the day relaxing at Domaine des Hauts de Loire, have dinner there, stay overnight
Day 3: Stay in/near Vouvray (see Chenonceau this day)
Day 4: Stay in Chinon
Day 5: Stay in Saumur
Day 6: Drive to Paris

How does this sound, to someone who has been here before?
