The Loire Valley region

THE LOIRE VALLEY

The word 'château' belongs to the Loire Valley, its very mention inspires images of grand extravagant castles, exquisite gardens and vast moats. It encapsulates the intrigue of French history and a romantic vision of France.

From the 15th to the 18th centuries the Loire was the playground of Kings, Princes, Dukes and Nobles their family fortunes and the wealth of France turned it into a vast neighbourhood of lavish châteaux. Rich and concentrated in architectural treasures Unesco named the entire region a World Heritage Site in 2000.

The Renaissance architecture and earlier defensive fortresses glimpsed at Angers, Chinon and Loche are stunning and numerous other châteaux big and small can be found throughout the Loire.

Saumur

SAUMUR

Twined with Warwick, England and Verden, Germany the historical town of Saumur is set along the banks of the Loire river. Hosting a fabulous Satruday morning market Saumur is also home to the famous Cadre Noir, the National Equestrian School of the elite French Cavalry, the remarkable horsemanship of the Cavalry and their beautiful horses can been seen between April & October are regularly held shows.

With many activities, exhibitions and wine festivals scheduled throughout the year Saumur is a worthy visit, if not only to see the Cadre Noir and the impressive Château, which has been lovingly restored, but to also enjoy the beauty of this stunning river side town in the heart of the Loire Valley, France.

MONTREUIL-BELLAY

Dominating the pretty medieval town of Montreuil-Bellay is its magnificent fairy tale Château whose impressive great wall still encloses the town centre to this day. An abundance of flower blooms throughout spring to the cooling months of winter Montreuil-Bellay is a pretty town to discover.

Host to a weekly market and a monthly Brocante (flea-market) there are a number of interesting restaurants to lunch & dine at, the Château to visit and a lovely picnic area, shaded by trees, set along the edge of the river Thouet which flows through the town, whilst eating your baguettes the resident ducks will pay you a visit hoping for some crumbs.
