Luxury Loire Wine and Boat Tour - 1 Day Tour - 2 night Stay

"Sue and Micaela arranged a sailing trip on the Loire in a traditional wooden craft that was surely the high spot of our holiday."

Tour Description :

On this 1 Day Exclusively Private Loire Wine and Boat Tour Package you have the opportunity to stay for 2 nights bed and breakfast in the heart of the vines at our 17C Manor House La Grande Maison. You will be welcomed with a wine tasting supper on the evening of your arrival and have 1 day touring the Loire Vineyards & Wineries with a picnic en-route and an afternoon sailing on the Loire.


Experience the romance of the majestic Loire River with our 1 day Wine & Boat Tour on a Traditional Loire Barque. We spend the morning wine tasting at the sparkling wine houses in St Hilaire St Florent (Ackermans, Veuve Amiot, Langlois Chateau or Bouvet Ladubay) before taking a delicious picnic along the river banks of the Loire.

In the afternoon we sail from the pretty port of Le Thoureil on an authentic Loire Wooden Boat. Enjoy an aperitif as we glide past the riverside villages spotting bird & wildlife along the way. Relax on board & watch the river flow by. You will get to see hidden corners of the Loire not usually accessible by road.

All you need do is arrive - we’ll take care of the rest!
