The Loire Valley region
Known as the Garden of France this area is glorious.
It is also noteworthy for the quality of its architectural heritage, in its historic towns such as Amboise, Angers, Blois, Chinon, Nantes, Orléans, Saumur, and Tours, but in particular for its world-famous châteaux, such as Amboise, Chambord, Villandry and Chenonceau and more particularly its many cultural monuments, which illustrate to an exceptional degree the ideals of the Renaissance.
On December 2, 2000, UNESCO added the central part of the Loire River valley, between Maine and Sully-sur-Loire, to its list of World Heritage Sites
Warm summers and balmy evenings are an apt description of the weather in the Loire. Mild spring weather brings out the buds on the trees and spring flowering bulbs much earlier than in the UK. Autumn is glorious with evenings often still warm enough to BBQ.
There are numerous attractions in the area, apart from the many Chateaux, the zoo at Doue la Fontaine, just 4 minutes away, is world famous for its conservation policy.
The world renowned Cadre Noir is based in Samur and apart from its frequent shows, there are weekly demonstrations that are open to the public For the more adventurous Puy du Fou, Futurscope and several adventure parks are all within easy driving distance.
The rose garden in Doue la Fontaine has hundreds of astounding roses on display and makes for a wonderful day out wandering around the rose gardens enjoying the scents and visions of these fabulous roses
Local villages hold events throughout the year and frequent wine festivals and open days at vinter make this an ideal area to visit.
Golf, horse riding, tennis, water sports, go karting, bird watching, cycling and walking are all easily available.
