Here we are in October and the sun streams down. It gives me a chance to soak in some sun towards the end of the season. What joy it is having such a wonderful suntrap on the pool terrace.

Guests at one of our wine tasting lunch tours

karins – loire – holiday – cottages – blog

A full day out and about today with our guests from Tennessee Larry and Louise on one of our wine tours from Paris. They are over having a well earned break and looking to unwind with Loirewinetours here in the Loire Valley. So a bit of sightseeing at Chateau Brissac, followed by a wine tasting lunch at Enchantoir with five courses and five wines of the estate with Mark and Carol. A visit to the vineyard, wine room and caves before trotting off to Saumur and the sparkling wine house of Gratien and Meyer where we tasted a goodly selection. A scenic run along the top of the escarpment in Saumur to the chateau a pic opportunity with the chateau and Loire behind. A great day out and then a run back to Angers to drop them off for supper before taking the TGV back to Paris. Wow a day of plenty.

   A pleasant evening was had at Manoir de Gourin with some lovely guests. We enjoyed enormously Karin’s super supper with  a starter of goats cheese sur le dessus de la pâte feuilletée with garden beetroot and lambs lettuce. followed by chicken á la confit with preserved lemon. French cheese of course and an exquisite summer pudding of all our fruit from the potager. Gooseberry, blackcurrant, strawberry and raspberry. Our wines were all local of course from Saumur except the Bordeaux rosé we bought in Medoc recently made from Cabernet Sauvignon.

  Hey, if you decide to visit a vineyard with Simon whilst on holiday here at Manoir de Gourin  then you may be put to work!

Our guests Paul, Elaine, Philip and Sara got down to business in the vineyard  removing the shoots from the vines. Well done them. They were then amply rewarded with a lovely relaxed lunch with wine paring for each course in the company of the vigneron and his wife.

We have weekly jaunts to the domaine to meet the winemaker for lunch and a wine tasting and a visit to the vineyard, wineroom and cellars. What fun.

   Its that time of year when we start our programme of spring cleaning and sprucing up our holiday cottages. So here is me hard at work in Layon cottage repainting the windows. Simon and I spend a month before our first guests arrive making sure everything is in perfect order ready to receive you all. So far we have 40 weeks of bookings with many returning guests so we must be doing something right. We look forward to welcoming you all.
