The Lure of the Loire

The Lure of the Loire Janine Marsh falls under the spell of the Loire Valley and its magnificent chateaux… The Loire Valley is the largest listed UNESCO World Heritage site in the world – recognised for its architectural heritage, historic towns and world-famous castles. Covering 800 km sq. the area has more than 1000 chateaux and several nicknames “The Valley of the Kings” and “the Garden of France” among them. There are medieval villages with cobble stone streets, topsy turvy houses, grand cathedrals and buildings that are pickled in the past. Vine covered hills and lush green valleys make this one of the most picturesque regions in France. With seemingly a chateau on every corner in the Loire and when you visit this marvellous area, it’s hard to know just what to focus on. We take a look at five downright gorgeous castles, legendary places of art and culture toi this day. Follow in the footsteps of Kings and Queens, legendary artists and fascinating personalities and feel the past in the present… Chenonceau – du Clos Lucé – Chambord – Blois – Chaumont-sur-Loire
