Great ideas for outings during your romantic weekend

Stroll hand in hand through the grounds of a Loire château before taking a tour of these tufa stone giants and treating yourselves to a wonderful slice of French history. And to prolong the magic, why not pull out all the stops with a helicopter flight (Air TouraineHéliberté…)? After all, you only live once!

And to round off your spa weekend at the château, remember that some of the wine estates are open on Sundays and are well worth a visit (Pierre and Bertrand Couly, the Château de l’Aulée, the David et Nathalie Drussé estate, the Montlouis-sur-Loire producers’ cellar, the Vouvray cellar, Plou et fils, etc.). As well as discovering the wine-making know-how, you’ll be able to buy a few lovely vintages to enjoy at home (in moderation, of course) which will bring back wonderful memories of your romantic break.
