We are staying 2 weeks in the "eastern part of the Loire Valley area : 40 minutes north-east of Tours and 20 minutes west of Vendôme" (from the website of our rental). None of us have been to this area before, any suggestions? Also there may be a large group (8+) at any one time going to eat, will that be a problem? Will we need reservations everywhere? Is there any such thing as 'not touristy'? Also we may have a 1 year old (who eats anything!) with us so let me know if a particular restaurant frowns on children. Thanks!!!
