"Les Châteaux de la Loire" France Things to Do Tip by Pierre_Rouss

France Things to Do: 1,475 reviews and 1,979 photos


<font color=blue><b>Les Châteaux de la Loire</b></font>
It is a magnificent region, with wavy countryside along the Loire river, populated by numerous well known castles owned by kings, ducs, their concubines or mistresses. It was the vacation area for nobles from Paris. We can still feel this even now.
You should circle the countryside to visit the Loire valley and its surroundings.
