Where to stay
It is not by mere chance that Euro Gusto is taking place in the Touraine region, the event was born here. The region known as « The Garden of France » merits a detour for its remarkable landscape, gastronomic specialities and wines, chateaus at Amboise, Chenonceau and Azay-le-Rideau, conservation kitchen gardens at the chateaus de Villandry and de la Bourdaisière, the house where Rabelais was born... The Loire valley has been included on the list of UNESCO's World Heritage sites since 2000 for its outstanding cultural landscape.
Euro Gusto is the perfect opportunity to discover or rediscover everything this region has to offer. Don't miss a trip that blends gastronomy, wine tasting, culture and nature! Our partner, the Touraine Tourist Board will be only too happy to suggest some remarkable places to visit, some well-known and some well-kept secrets, and unique and authentic places to stay and eat.
