INTRODUCING THE LOIRE VALLEY

Dotted with ancient villages, filled with architectural splendour and famed for its vineyards, the Loire Valley is completely charming. Explore the turreted chateaux and their magnificent gardens in the UNESCO World Heritage listed central river valley. Wander the historical towns and cities of the region. Or simply enjoy the relaxed finery of your own country retreat, sipping Sancerre or Pouilly-Fumé with some local goats cheese.

Fairytale castles, grand chateaux and gastronomic delights in the ‘Garden of France’.

Things to do

LANDMARKS

Nestling in formal gardens and surrounded by moats, the Loire Valley Chateaux are architectural wonders in themselves. There are over 40 across the region, from giants like Chateau de Chenonceau to smaller – no less stunning – examples such as Chateau d’Azay-le-Rideau on the Indre River. Wander through them and marvel at their aristocratic lavishness.

WINE

From Touraine to Sancerre, the wine areas of the Loire Valley are admired for their quality and sheer diversity. Known for crisp, fruity white wines using Chenin blanc, Sauvignon blanc and Melon de Bourgogne grapes, there is also a wealth of sparkling and dessert wines to be savoured with your fine dining.

FOOD

Also known as ‘the Garden of France’, a trip to the Loire Valley promises gastronomic treats. Expect fresh seasonal produce and dishes featuring freshwater fish. Succulent pork recipes are also favoured and thanks to the vast tracts of unspoilt forest, you will often find game and wild mushrooms on menus when in season. 

This is the spiritual home of Tarte Tatin – don’t leave without sampling this delectable French dessert.
