About this location
The Pays de la Loire region
Typical weather in the Loire Valley for April to May is 16°C rising to 20°C in June to 27°C in September. From late spring and into summer, the weather becomes more dependable with long dry spells, on average, there are 11 days of rainfall during this period: not as warm as those in the far south of France, but a far more comfortable heat. To check the weather visit - www.meteo.fr.
The pool is not heated in the summer as it keeps a temperature in excess of 28 degrees C.
Generally the area is renowned for its elegant houses and chateaux built from the creamy white tuffeau stone, which has been quarried from the cliffs along the Loire (the tunnels were later made into wine cellars and for mushroom growing). There are some magnificent gardens (particularly rose gardens) and some beautiful and historic chateaux close by, as well as music festivals and food festivals throughout the summer and autumn. The area is famous for its food and wine and is known as the 'Garden of France' where all the Kings of France and England came to hunt and entertain. The wines are predominantly made from the cabernet franc grape producing excellent whites and pinks and a red which if you like the lighter, finer red you will find very agreeable and it will not give you a hangover!
