Western Loire in September

Laurie Roth

New Member
Made it through the Lockdown in the Luberon and am thinking that by September, it might be possible to travel easily again. Hope so. I have spent quite a bit of time in the Eastern Loire, but don't really know the western bit from Tours to Nantes. The little I've read sounds very interesting. I'll be driving with a friend and a dog and am looking for a dog-friendly place to stay, preferably a small house + fenced garden for 1-2 weeks.

I'd like suggestions on where to stay and things to do in day trips from an easily accessible home base. I am considering a couple of days in Nantes around the end of the trip and a leisurely drive back down the Atlantic side of France, a stop in Limoges, hopefully, to find some porcelain I've been wanting, then back to home in the Luberon.

Any suggestions are most welcome.
