In 1991 the Château de la Bourdaisière was converted into an upscale B&B. They also laid out a wonderful walled kitchen garden in its 55 hectares woodland park with some 550 varieties od red, white, green and yellow tomatoes! Guests and visitors to the chateau can harvest and enjoy them in the Tomato Bar.
Until the end of October, the Tomato Bar offers juices, shortbread with tomato sorbet and tomato salads. Tomato heaven! After a lovely meal you can talk to the gardeners who will give you advice on growing and organic gardening.
The nearby town of Montlouis -sur-Loire is around two hours from Paris by train. It sounds like an amazing weekend plan to me!!
