"Exuding FRENCH provincial charm...that's Blois!" Blois by morgane1692

Blois Travel Guide: 93 reviews and 315 photos

Joan and I agree...

Blois is a perfect setting for both organizing one's army, as well as the base for one's Loire Valley wanderings.

This cool, little town is just a couple hours by train southwest of Paris, but it's a few hundred years removed in terms of atmosphere!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:great location, has its own chateau, uncrowded, especially in winter!
  • Cons:you have to take a train to Tours to start most chateaux circuit tours!
  • In a nutshell:Classic FRANCE!!!

    I loved the castle and the old city very much. Lovely pics in your travelogue, I saw those castles too.
