There is no exhaustive list of these castles, most of them were built or remodeled during the French renaissance.Among the best known, Chambord, Chenonceau, Cheverny,Villandry, Amboise,Valencay.

The castles are not the only attraction of this area also known for its mild climate and for its wines.
A winemaker tradition that dates back to the fifht century, a great diversity of wines, white, red or rosé, dry or sweet, wines from Saumur, Tours ou Chinon, the choice is vast. Many producers offers tours of their cellars.
