Where I stayed
Not a bad little town, but not too many vineyards here. Though I may rent a bike and go for a ride.
I rented a bike yesterday and headed out in search of vineyards and Chateaus. It was a perfect day and I found a good bike path that followed the Loire River. Once I get out of the city it became apparent that all I could find was the same old stuff back home. Like corn and wheat. But it was "French" corn and wheat so I guess it made it cooler. I actually got lucky and stumbled upon a Chateau in the distance. The name was Chateau de Villandry. The original one was built almost 1,000 years ago but was rebuilt several times over the years. The nearest addition was like 300 years old. It did have some awesome gardens all along the side and back of the place. Comeplete with a not-so-hard maze which was completed in a record time of 6 seconds by me.
On my train back to Paris I managed to see an ever bigger Chateau in the distance. So it wasn't a total lose on my idea for vineyards and Chateaus.
