The Loire Valley region
Often called the "Garden of France". the Loire Valley is an enchanted land of vineyards, flowers and rolling green hills dotted with more than a thousand chateaux. It is perhaps the charm of its gentle pace life that has, for centuries, made it a sought-after location for poets and writers. It is a step back through the history of some of France's finest works of art.
The Loire Valley was the favoured location of the French Kings and is renowned for its superb Châteaux and vineyards. The region has many facets and can cater for any type of holiday maker. There are activities such as taking a Kayak down the Loire River, hot air ballooning and parachuting.
For the slightly less adventurous there is an abundance of golf courses, fishing lakes and cycling routes. For simple sightseeing a week or twos holiday will just not be enough. The Loire has many tourist attractions to discover such as Regal Châteaux, troglodyte caves, pretty villages and some superb zoos and museums. The climate is pleasant all year round sharing the four seasons with the UK but with blue skies through spring, long hot summers, clear sunny autumns and mild winters.
Locally there are many local facilities with the town of Noyant providing everything you may need for a stay at Le Bois. There is a supermarket with a 24 hours fuel station, butchers, bakers, banks and and array of restaurants and cafe bars. Friday each week bring the local market which is always worth a visit.
