The Loire Valley region

The Loire valley is renowned since roman times and the kings of France choosed it at the renaissance to build there fastuous castles (Chambord, Blois, Amboise, Chenonceaux, Villandry, Ussé, Azay-le- rideau). It is nice and mild climate most of the year. Famous wines grow there (Vouvray, Bourgueil, Chinon).

Local activities include wine tasting in the numerous spots of the Vouvray valley, visiting Tours, Vendôme with their splendid cathedrals and charming old quarters, strolling along the banks of the river Loir with its charming small towns (Montoire and Lavardin )or the river Loire with its famous royal castles.
