stretching from Sancerre to Angers (about 250 miles / 400 km)…
Considered as France top-ranked picturesque regions, the Loire Valley is certainly one of the richest region where the historic heritage is closely linked to a great lifestyle. Located at the cross-roads of Brittany, Normandy, Aquitaine and the capital Paris… crossed by the majestic Loire river today listed at the Unesco world heritage, the Loire Valley is the symbol of the good living, elegance and refinement. From the Middle-Ages to the Renaissance and beyond, Kings and Dukes fought for the territory which was under English control. They built outstanding castles for their residences which is the witness of power and richness. Through permanent renovation works, the castles keep the splendor of their past times.
Magnificent castles and mansions, scenic landscapes, sweet life… the Loire Valley region grows lush with fresh vegetables and fruits, along with fish and world class wines such as the Vouvray, Montlouis, Chinon, Bourgueil… from intense ruby reds, to sparkling whites, and sweet amber-colored wines. In a word, Loire Valley is the perfect destination for a unique lifestyle vacation combining cultural tours, connection with local people, the joy of cooking and eating and… the chance to have visited France differently!
