Venturing deep into France and all it’s beauty…

I have spent the past week in north west France, the region of Breton and the Loire valley. My first stop was Nante, were I visited Dutchess Anne’s Chateaux, rode push bikes on freeways( later to find that’s what not to do in France) and stayed in fabulous a fabulous bed and breakfast.
I then went to Le Pouliguen, a beach town filled with boats, creperies and boulangerie’s. There is fish markets in the middle of town selling the latest fresh catch, lovely little quaint bars and clothes shops and a 7km long beach. I learnt how to make Crepes, visited the salt marshes and medieval towns. I also spent my time there at a fantastic bnb with a full of life Lady called Leo, she is uber cool and such a great host and now friend, all just 2min from the beach. It’s such a nice, clean and relaxing town the architecture is spectacular and the people are warm and very kind.
I then went on to Montsoreau Where I stayed in another bed and breakfast in a 16th century house with a room in the attic. My host Marjin was an Irish American retired school teacher that went above and beyond for me cooking amazing meals and sharing great conversations over aged wine from his wine cave. We visited his friends cave house also known as a Trogdolyte, built in an old quarry from many centuries ago. I visited Saumur and the castle and admired the small town and it’s beauty along the Loire River.
I then ventured to Langeais a small town with a population of 4000, a large chateaux and stayed the night with Shaun at Le clos Rabelois a large bnb in town. I enjoyed a meal at the local creperie ordering the “speciality of the region” an omelette with tourangelle which I think is some kind of tuna or pork not quite sure to be honest but it was delish.
I’ve spent the day relaxing at the bnb in great company been waited on (thanks Shaun) and I have managed make it to the station on time and with the right ticket. That’s a big deal for me, feels strange been so organised!! Now better go carnt miss the train the next ones not for 4h!!
