This year with my husband and two children, we were looking for a quieter destination than usual, far from a city and the hustle and bustle of major tourist destinations, with lots to do with the family, not too far from Paris to limit the kilometres, cheaper than the Atlantic coast or the French Riviera… In short, we were looking for a needle in a haystack!
Everyone in the family wanted something slightly different… My daughter dreamed of adventure on a river, playing explorers and “at least one escape game” during the summer. My son wanted ‘to be surrounded by nature’ and to go for a bike ride. My husband wanted to eat well and drink good wine. As for me, I had just read a historical novel and wanted old stones to extend the story, but I also wanted to see animals because I hadn’t set foot in a zoo for 15 or 20 years!
We searched using all these criteria and discovered the Sud Val de Loire!
