We are thinking of staying in beautiful Loches for several days. This is our first trip to the Loire Valley. We will have a car. We want to visit Chateaus, markets and maybe a winery. We are wondering if Loches is a good base? In addition, we will be catching the 8:00am train on a Monday to Charles de Gualle Airport. Will it be feasible for us to be almost an hour away from the train station for such an early trip? Or, should we look at something closer to Tours? We like quaint little towns and quaint accommodations.
Thank you for any help. We appreciate it very much!
