Individual Rough Shooting foray out of Paris

The region of Sologne is located in the south of Orléans, (2 hours from Paris), surrounded by the Loire valley. The Loire châteaux & vineyards of Sancerre are the natural sightseeing goals around a hunting trip. This can be described as a "wife endorsed" hunting trip. The season starts at the end of September until mid January. In the early season we are hunting partridge in the crops and fields. From the end of October when tree leaves start to colour and fall we start to hunt pheasant in the woods and forests. We are offering château accommodation (very prestigious and genuine castle on picture below) or simpler rooms or cottages on the estate. We will send a priced offer for any sojourn on simple request.
