Tips from locals
The market is on Tuesday morning in Bourgueil. The wine in the Loire valley is famous, and a trip to a local vineyard is a holiday ‘must’. The local wine growers are usually very willing to arrange a tasting and tell you all about the history and production of their wine.
Traditional French market on Tuesdays - our favourite. Don't miss the covered part that is open at the same time. There are lots of cafés and places for ice cream too for taking a welcome break.
The market everyone goes to on a Tuesday morning to shop or sit and people watch. Also a large supermarket on the edge of this pretty town.
Lovely old town with great market on Tuesday mornings. Bourgueil is the centre of the wine appellation and has a Maison de Vins where you can taste and buy some of the best.
