... Alex breathed a sigh of relief as the train trip was lovely. We travelled along the Loire valley, past towns like Ambois and Blois-Chambord, with their beautiful Chateaux and Cathedrals. There were quite a few ruins along the way as well. If I was to do it again, I would start the trip earlier and get on and off as there were several trips during the day.

A lovely dip in the pool in the evening sunshine - still hot enough for me at 7pm to stay in for a while and a great game of volley ball beach ball!
