    Hi Folks, We're in the Dordogne region and plan to start wandering north in a couple of days. Does anyone know any vineyards or caves in the Loire or Centre region that do wine tasting and motorhome stop over? I intended to get France Passion before we left but forgot. I've heard that quite a few of the vineyard owners allow MHs to stay over but would like some recommendations.
    Thanks
    Mags

    We found in Alsace the best thing to do was go to the local tourist info office and ask there. There were a few that allowed stopovers not in france passion.

    thanks folks. We went to the Saumur Aire - really excellent. Had a tour of Langlois Chateau cave before we arrived and it was wonderful. Only one of us could do the tasting bit because we were still en route. Lucky me! Lovely bubbly :)
