Wine Tour from Paris

Wine Tour from Paris with an English Speaking Guide & Visit The Loire Valley Vineyards in One Day

 

Thinking about taking a Wine Tour break from Paris? Visiting France and want to see a little more than just Paris? Then why not take time out and avoid the crowds with a relaxing few days in the Loire Vineyards. All you need do is arrive - we’ll take care of the rest!

 

Experience the French countryside and enjoy Loire Valley Wines with our 1 day Escape Paris Wine Tour. A high speed TGV train takes you directly from Paris to Angers in under an hour and a half.

 

We collect you from the station and transfer you to La Grande Maison in the heart of the vines. It won’t be long after arrival that you are sitting in the vineyards and sipping your first glass of cremant.

 

Once you have settled in you will have chance to go walking in the vines or even go for a bike ride before dinner.

 

On the first the evening we serve you a delicious Wine Sampling Supper either in the gardens or the main hall. The home cooked meal with ingredients direct from  our own organic potager is accompanied  with a Loire wine with each course, whilst we informally introduce you to the wine styles, grapes and terroir of the region.

 

Accommodation is available in one of our four well appointed bedrooms all with private en-suite shower or bathroom and wc. A delicious continental breakfast is offered with freshly squeezed orange juice, fresh coffee or tea, croissants and baguettes all collected daily from the boulangerie.

 

After a yummy breakfast we head off the next day into the Saumur/Anjou Region where we will have the opportunity during the day to visit 2-3 wineries, sample the wines, tour the caves and buy wines at cellar door prices. There is a picnic lunch en-route either in the vineyards or on the banks of the beautiful Loire River.

 

The area is so rich in history and culture that we always throw in a little sight seeing along the way too.  Back at La Grande Maison you will greeted with tea/coffee and biscuits in the stunning gardens and have time to relax before being taken to a local restaurant in the evening or returned direct to Angers station if you are only staying one night. A not to be missed tour of the caves and tunnels at La Grande Maison is also included. SO EASY!

"Our first trip to France. Six nights in Paris followed by four nights at La Grande Maison. Whilst Paris was interesting, historic and busy, our four days with you were relaxing and we experienced more of the REAL FRANCE than in Paris. Your facilities, service and hospitality were the "Icing on the Cake!" Thank You"  - Max and Deena Warren - Arizona USA

 

“How wonderful to be able to drink 29 different wines in the space of one weekend and console yourself with the fact that it's educational as well as pleasurable - heavenly from the first to the last drop. Our hosts not only provided great food and fascinating lessons in viniculture but were excellent company too. We shall be back!” Kirsty Lang of BBC Radio 4 - London UK

 

"This is as good as it gets. Thank you for an amazing four days. All five senses are fully engaged in pleasure, when you have the perfect combination of fun & interesting people, delicious home made food & beautiful wines!!"  - Leah & Barton Melbourne Australia

 

"This is exactly what we were looking for! Your hospitality and thoughtfulness made our stay extra special - we will definitely see you again! Graete" - Leonie, Helonna and Nicolas - Pretoria South Africa
