We will be staring in Chenonceaux and driving. Could someone give us a day trip of chateau and other sights with directions if possible so we end back up in Chenonceaux. Ideas on lunch or wineries etc would be welcome. Thanks ps It will be on a Sunday
Rick's 40-something pages on how to see the chateaux in the Loire, the Loire chapter of France 2008, gives you a good start. Rick doesn't cover Brittany in much detail so I gave Jamie a more detailed itinerary for Breton--but The Master has written a pretty good answer to your question right in his book. For an even more detailed driving itinerary for the Chateaux of the Loire, see the Michelin Green Guide, Chateaux of the Loire.
