The Loire Valley is located in the middle stretch of the Loire river and is referred to as the 'cradle of the French language' and 'the garden of France' due to the abundance of vineyards, friut tree's (such as cherries), and artichoke and asparagus fields, which line the banks of the river. Take in the views by boat or stroll along the river walkways.

Notable for it's historic towns, architecture and wines, UNESCO added the central part of the Loire Valley to it's list of world heritage sites. The must-see towns of Angers, Saumur, Chinon, Tours and Langeais are all within easy reach.
