The Loire Valley is one of the top tourist destinations in France and there is so much to experience in this one place. Artistic masterpieces, natural landscapes, and captivating scenic views will mark a chapter in your book of memories. This impressive river valley runs for 280 km through the central region of France.
The chateaux of the Loire Valley are part of the heritage of the Anges, Blois, and Chinon region when it comes to architecture. Created for the royalty of the French Kingdom, you will be able to recognise the reason for the grandeur of the buildings and the extent of the history there. Though staying in 5-star luxury cottages will not give you the exact same experience as those who resided in the castle, it will certainly be a worthwhile equivalent as you will be able to relax in a comfortable, well-appointed dwelling.
A trip to the Loire Valley is essential for those who particularly want to spend a holiday in France because of the wine produced there. This region is known for its vineyards and sampling the wines as you tour the vineyards is an experience in itself.
With the entire region being a UNESCO World Heritage Site, you will see why it is known as the ‘Garden of France’. The agricultural capability means it provides more than wine, as the farmland is lush enough to support many different crops.
Petrol heads will enjoy a visit to Le Mans, where the renowned annual endurance race for sports cars originated. The circuit on which the race takes place is worth a visit, though tickets are needed for specific events.
The medieval town of Loches has been well preserved but has also managed to incorporate some modern amenities to create an ideal place for a traveller to visit. Take a sightseeing tour, visit the museums or sit in the garden that was recreated from a painting by Emmanuel Lansyer.
A visit to Orleans will create amazing memories as the city plays host to many festivals during the summer months, of which you will find yourself enthralled.
The unforgettable experience will extend to your stay in one of our luxury cottages when you holiday in the Loire Valley region. In fact, you are likely to love it so much that you will not want to stay in any other type of accommodation.
