This private tour focuses on wine, gastronomy and well-being. The best wines of the Loire Valley and Burgundy are on the programme. You will be charmed by the spa in Burgundy in your 4* hotel.
The first part of the tour takes place in the Loire Valley.

The Loire Valley’s nickname ‘The Garden of France’ will come into its own, over the course of visits to Azay-le-Rideau and Villandry. Of course during these three first days you will also discover that the Loire Valley is a land of vineyards, through authentic and memorable experiences of its wines.
En route to Burgundy, you will enjoy two nights in a 4* luxury hotel, complete with a spa, situated at the foot of vineyards. These exceptional and prestigious wines are mainly red, and produced from the Pinot Noir and Gamay grapes. Burgundy is a cultural must-see, and during your visit you will have the opportunity to taste some of the most prestigious wines in France. Your marvel will be prolonged with a visit to the medieval city of Beaune. An authentic experience await you in this exclusive private tour discovering French wines by means of wine cellar visits, tasting of great regional ‘Crus’ and meetings with wine producers.
