Tours is the famous gateway to the Loire Valley: stay there for cultural sites, great food and a vibrant evening scene. History buffs will find it particularly rewarding to base themselves in and around Angers, Amboise or sophisticated Orléans, which feature myriad heritage attractions of their own, and a lively buzz. Fontevraud L'Abbaye is home to what was once France’s most powerful abbey, and is a tranquil choice for a Loire Valley retreat.
The Loire Valley is made up of more than 70 wine regions, the most highly-regarded of which tend to be on the left bank of the Loire River. Foodies and wine lovers will delight in the offerings of Saumur and Sancerre, where you can enjoy tours and tastings at the world-class vineyards which stretch in almost every direction.
If you’re dreaming of touring — or staying in — extravagant châteaux, look no further. Chenonceau, Chambord, Villandry and d'Azay-le-Rideau are amongst the most famous, and make for wonderful days out. The Loire’s other big attraction is the excellent cycling. With relatively flat, picturesque landscapes and the added appeal of popping into wineries as you go, this is a fun idea for a trip with friends or as a couple. You can also try horse riding, follow nature trails and kayak along the region’s rivers.
Especially popular throughout the summer months, the best places to stay in the Loire Valley fill up fast. Book your trip well in advance to book a room at your dream property!
