Day 1: Lloret de Mar - Sully-sur-Loire - Visit the Castle of Sully-sur-Loire
As we explained in the preparations for this trip, initially this route was designed to fly to Paris or Nantes, but after valuing it and looking at everything we had planned, we sensed that living in Lloret de Mar, would be much better and more convenient to go directly in our car, since the journey to the Castle of Sully-sur-Loire, which is our first visit, is approximately 8 hours.
Against this option, if we had to fly there, between the time we have to transfer to the airport, the flight, the delays that are lately in this month of August, the collection of the rental car in the Loire Valley and go to him Sully-sur-Loire Castle, we understood that in the end this second option, despite what it may seem initially, was going to be much more tired, as well as long, than the one we are going to use to go directly by car from home.
And so, fully convinced of the decision, when it is 7:30 in the morning and after breakfast, we check that we have all the documentation and everything we need and take the road to Loire Valley, to start what will be the last summer getaway we have scheduled.
The first point of this route through the Loire Valley is the town of Sully-sur-Loire, 845 kilometers or almost 8 hours away, where we will visit the town and the Sully-sur-Loire Castle, where we expect to arrive around 4 in the afternoon, according to the GPS forecast.
Being a journey of about 8 hours we decided to take turns to drive about 2 hours each, so the first section or so we raised until we reach France and there make the first change.
