Just added a new town to the "Great Towns" section of the website: Blois.
Blois has been one of our favorite towns that we have visited. It is the perfect small French town, just a little off the beaten track - not too touristy, but with enough to see and do.
We dropped down for a weekend, leaving Paris on the Friday night and returning on the Saturday evening. However, the weather didn't co-operate, and we chose a time when many places were shut. We will be heading back next Spring/Summer to explore more.
