Immerse yourself in the known and little known regions, cities and villages of France

Summer in the Loire Valley

Every July, my children and I escape the heat and traffic of Northern Virginia and fly to France. Each year we cannot sleep on the plane, we're just too excited. My father meets us at the airport. He drives us half awake, half asleep back to the Loire Valley where he and my mother have a 15th century manoir.
