In recent times, pruning and canopy management have started to limit yields more effectively. [43] The Loire Valley is often divided into three sections. The chateau was erected in the 16th century and remains a pristine example of French Renaissance architecture. La région est marquée au moment de la Révolution par la guerre de Vendée (1793-1796) et la Chouannerie. Au XVIe siècle, une galerie à arcades, inspirée de celle du château de Bois, signe l'essor de la Renaissance. In the past the village had survived as a fishing port but now seems pretty much like a ghost town, apart from the tourists, because I am lead to believe, Parisians have bought up much of the property as holiday homes -'damn the Parisians' Located in the heart of the Val De Loire the medieval town of Chinon rests by the banks of the majestic Vienne river.

LUNCH: independently in Amboise village for both walkers and non-walkers. More laps in the pool and time to ruminate on what's for dinner. Ces chenaux sont rarement au même endroit d'une année sur l'autre : lors de ses hautes eaux (habituellement en février et en octobre, en plusieurs périodes de quelques jours chacune) la Loire occupant sinon la totalité de son lit majeur du moins une grande part de celui-ci, remanie son lit en profondeur.
