Loire Guide

Fairytale castles, chateaux, Gothic monasteries and ancient towns nestle along the banks of the mighty Loire as it flows through the heart of France.  As you travel through the region you will notice the contrasting landscapes pass by with tidy market gardens, lush, fertile fields, vineyards and fields of sunflowers.

It was this famous river that was the inspiration behind some of the most famous French architecture including Amboise, Chabord, Blois, Azay-le-Rideau and Chenonceau.  There are over 300 castles and chateaux in the region boasting magnificent architecture and oozing history with reminders of days gone by.

The pace of life in the beautiful Loire Valley is slow and its people known for their laidback attitude to life. A holiday in the Loire is about strolls around impressive châteaux and immaculate gardens, visits to character hilltop towns, lazy lunches in riverside settings.
