Cooking Vacations In Loire

Take a luxurious cooking vacation in France to the Loire Valley, famous for the stunning chateaux lining the banks of the Loire river. The valley was long the playground of nobles and became the seat of the French Renaissance, giving it a breathtaking artistic and architectural patrimony evident in the area’s many magnificent chateaux and gardens. Today, much of the Loire is flanked by vineyards, making the region ideal for a French cooking vacation and wine tours and it is just an hour’s train ride from Paris on the fast train! During your cooking holiday in the Loire you will visit world-class wineries, take hands-on French cooking lessons with local chefs, and enjoy guided tastings of some of the region’s many delicacies, such as fine cheeses, mushrooms, and chocolate.
