I spend 9 months of the year traveling in Europe to learn more about each destination I represent. I am passionate about sharing all a region has to offer with with my clients. I have been thrilled to spend time in the Loire Valley and fully explore the wine, food, culture and beauty of this extraordinary region. Whether you want to spend time tasting wonderful wine, biking past vineyards and natural parks, touring famous chateaux or tasting the local goat cheese, I will take great care of you. I can recommend the best wine visits and local markets. I look forward to helping you know where to stay, what to do, and where to eat. Allow me to help you plan an amazing trip to the Loire!
