I am heading to Loire Valley in a couple weeks time for 2-3 days with my finace and a friend. we will have a car and would like anyone's suggestions on some of the more quaint villages and areas to see/ meander through. we are not interested in large touristy areas/cities...maybe difficult to avoid though. we wil visit some of the larger wine chateaux but are also interested in some of the small "mom and pop" places off the beaten path...any ideas are welcomed! specific chateaux, villages, or perhaps an "area" or two ... thanks in advance!
