The Chateaux and Gastronomy of the Loire Valley
with Huon Mallalieu and Bill Knott
3rd October-10th October, 2014
Huon Mallalieu, Bill Knott and James Pembroke have put together a trip to the Loire Valley, the soul of La Douce France. No other region in France has such a happy combination of history, food and wine, and we have chosen to go at the time of the vendange.
Based in the heart of the Loire Valley, Oldie trip-goers will be visiting all the nearby famous sites but at a quiet time of year. So, you can look forward to guided tours of Chenonceaux, Azay-Le-Rideau, Tours, Chambord and Valencay, as well as a trip to Bourges to see the splendours of the cathedral.
You will be staying at Chateau de Noizay (www.chateaudenoizay.com), a very sumptuous 16th century chateau and member of the Relais and Chateaux since 1992. This beautiful chateau, situated just 20 minutes from Tours, has 19 bedrooms and a swimming pool. Maintaining our house party ethos, we will have breakfast and dinner in our own private dining room where we will sample the cuisine of renowned chef, Frédéric Collin.
To reserve a place, please send a deposit for £500 (made payable to Oldie Publications) to James Pembroke, The Oldie, 65 Newman St, London W1T 3EG. The full price of the trip is £1595 and the outstanding balance is to be paid by three months before the trip.
