There’s no need to unpack and repacking your suitcases for 8 wonderful days as we cruise the Western section of the Loire on board the MS Loire Princess, our ‘hotel’ for 7 nights.

As a follow up to our land tour which precedes, we’ll view this magnificent Valley from yet another perspective as we travel to Saumur from Nantes. All meals and all beverages are included each day. It is truly a carefree way to travel with few decisions to make and no hassles to worry you.

Our cruise starts in Nantes near where the Loire flows into the Atlantic. It’s an area famous for its oysters and the perfect wine match is the local Muscadet. During our cruise, we’ll visit Muscadet producers as well as many cultural highlights of the most picturesque valley in all of France. In fact there are 8 shore excursions (including our custom wine visits) that we’ve planned during the cruise and all are included. Of course, while sailing from picturesque town to town, there will also be time to relax and experience this marvelous part of France.

Our tours focus on the wines, cuisine and culture of the regions we visit and the Loire has all 3 in abundance. In terms of wineries, the Loire produces whites, rosés and reds as well as sparkling wines and dessert wines reminiscent of good Sauternes. My very first wine epiphany was a rosé d’Anjou with a touch of sweetness yet a wonderful wine as an aperitif and with food. There are so many wine experiences awaiting us which will surprise and impress wine lovers.

By participating in both of our Loire Valley tours- the cruise and castle stay- you will have experienced the entire length of this gorgeous valley as well as all the wines, from Muscadet to Sancerre. And when the cruise ends in Nantes on Oct. 29, you will treasure your experiences by boat and by land.
