Lovin' the Loire

Gina Doggett

Gina Doggett divides her time between Paris, where she has worked as a journalist with Agence France-Presse for most of the past quarter-century, and Amboise, where she has a small house on the Loire River. The Paris years were delightfully interrupted by a four-year stint in Rome, working as AFP’s anglophone correspondent covering Italian politics, art, cinema and fashion.

Her love of France began with a visit to the Loire with her family when she was a teenager, spending two weeks exploring the Valley and its famous chateaux.
