Loire Valley

Every chateau in the Loire Valley tells its own story: of Sleeping Beauty at Ussé, of Leonardo da Vinci at Amboise and Clos-Lucé.

Spot pine martens in the Orléans forest and ride along the River Loire by bike.

Take in the phenomenal Apocalypse Tapestry in Angers, before heading on to Nantes with its wacky Machines de l'Île, featuring a giant ride-on elephant. Come nightfall, see the Anneaux de Buren in their illuminated glory.
