Karine Guyon

founder of Loire Secrets

a real ball of fire!

The Loire Valley has always been Karine’s favored playground. She took her first steps on the Loire River’s sandbanks and grew up with the best local vegetable growers and the famous rose-producing nurserymen. From her earliest days, Karine was interested in the colors of her native country and attracted by the play of light reflected by the Loire River.

Having travelled extensively throughout many beautiful countries for various tour operators, she understood that, in no other place in the world, would she find this wonderful softness of life. Today she lives next to the Loire and enjoys every day the reflexion of light and energy emanating from this majestic and powerful river. Not far from the vineyards and her own garden contains a treasure: a troglodyte dwelling where our ancestors dug the limestone from the rock with which to adorn the valley’s beautiful chateaux.

Karine always puts all her heart and full energy into every travel project she organises; each customer is unique and has individual needs and requests. At Loire Secrets, Karine ensures that these needs are met with a customised and personal response. This is our way of working, our priority and our business philosophy.

The essentials for us are: personal encounters, authenticity, meaningful moments, unique experiences.
