The Owner Recommends

Chateaux in the Loire Valley

There is certainly plenty to see here in the Loire Valley including many magnificent chateaux.

(1km) Chateau de Langeais a perfect example of 15th century military architecture and has a working drawbridge. This renaissance castle is home to a valuable collection of tapestries.

(11km) Chateau de Villandry is world famous for its beautiful gardens which recreate the art of 16th century gardening through the combination of vegetables and flowers.

(60km) Chateau de Chenonceau is an architectural gem straddling the River Cher. The castle was a love nest, the home of various women in history and the setting for lavish festivities. Diane de Poitiers and Catherine de Medici both designed their own gardens here.

(115km) Chateau de Chambord is one of the most famous historic monuments in the world. The forest of towers, elegant bellcotes and decorative chimneys, the cross -shaped rooms with coffered ceiling, and its double spiral staircase constituted a prototype for the French Renaissance.
