Experience the Loire Valley Home Page


About us



We are Jim & Pauline Craig


This website was 'born' in 2006 out of the need for a 'vehicle' to advertise our  holiday home in the village of Barrou in the Southern Touraine area of Centre - Val de Loire but soon become a bit of an obsession.


We have separate sites https://www.loirevalleyexperience.com/ to advertise our holiday home 'Les Balcons' in Le Grand Pressigny and https://www.loireholidayhome.com/ for the 'Old Walnut Mill' in Barrou


We continue to try and build up the site to be the best information source for the Loire Valley here in France.


Our resources are limited - a laptop, not a great deal of computer savvy, learned by blundering on plus surfing the 'net (can be a bad idea sometimes) plus a little help from smarter people than us (Allan McHarg needs a personal mention) but we enjoy the challenge of making the Loire Valley the first choice of visitors to France.

We also have a blog https://loirevalleyexperiences.blogspot.com/ about living here.
