Honeymoon Travel Guide: Loire Valley, p.3

Entry No. 10 / Loire Valley, p.3

Wrapping up my recap on our Loire Valley road trip, I thought I’d share a few last towns with you that I found tremendously charming and definitely on my recommendation list. We visited St. Aignan after touring Chambord in the morning – perfect town to lounge around for an afternoon. When we went, the entire town was draped in the most cheerful rainbow bunting … the pennants fluttered in the breeze and added such a happy and lively vibe to the town. I couldn’t stop snapping pics.

This cute crepiot won so many awards that they ran out of room to post them all! Unfortunately, they hadn’t opened yet so we didn’t get to judge for ourselves but I’m sure it would have been a yummy experience!

We found a little cafe that was open in St. Aignan and stopped for an afternoon drink. I had fraise-infused Perrier – Mmmm!

On our trip, we also spotted flyers for a “brocante” market in Suevres. It worked out perfectly with our itinerary and we were able to head over on a Sunday morning and we pretty much made out like bandits! I scored some beautiful enamel pitchers, some wooden and metal bottle carriers, goooorgeous French books, plates and tins … and an incredible French antique nightstand with marble top. Below on the right side is a small glimpse at the market … I was really tempted to scoop up that cool art deco dresser.
