About Loire Valley
Once upon a time, the picturesque Loire Valley was playground to the French Court, where royalty went to get away from it all. Visitors today will still feel something of the regal about this green countryside just an hour outside Paris. The chateaux increase in extravagance and opulence, their gardens ordered and majestic, and the rows of vines give the landscape a neatness which you can imagine would be approved of by The Sun King. Our pick of the best places to stay in the Loire Valley range from chic little chambres d'hote to no-holds-barred luxury chateaux hotels.
The list of the Loire's great chateaux is long and includes some of the most famed in France. While exploring the area you can row a boat under the half-bridge-half-chateau that is Chenonceau, see the French national treasure that is Chateau de Chambord and sleep in rooms which hosted the medieval English Kings.
The other thing the Loire Valley is famed for is the produce. Wines, game, cheese and other delicacies fit for a king will grace your plate when you visit this region. The Loire has more than 70 separate appellations or wine regions, producing wine of all shades and tastes, from bone dry to sweet as pie. The very general rule is that the best wines come from the south facing left banks of the Loire River. These include the Sauvignon Blanc grapes for the Sancerres and Pouilly-Fumes, the Chenin Blancs for the Anjours and Saumurs and the Muscadets of Nantes.
The region is also a lovely place to cycle. Firstly it's relatively flat, there are pleasant green views and the back roads wind through lots of lovely little villages. Secondly, it's a good way to hop from vineyard to vineyard while still managing to taste!
Where to stay - Which towns?
Tours, Saumur, Angers, Amboise and Fontevraud L'Abbaye are all good places to stay if you plan to explore the Loire Valley's historical past. Slightly further north and east, Orleans has plenty for culture vultures too.
Most wine tours of the Loire trace between Tours and Sancerre or Angers and Sancerre and follow the back roads popping into little boutique or family run wineries. But for full immersion, stay amongst the vines in pretty Sancerre.
