Choose Loire Valley Holiday Cottages and visit an UNESCO World Heritage Site in the heart of France
Known officially in France as the ‘Centre’ region, it contains the cities of Orleans, Touraine and Berry. One of the main attractions of the region is the sheer number of castles and chateaux that there are here. Many visitors to Loire Valley holiday rentals spend almost their entire holiday looking at castle and chateaux, there are that many of them. It is difficult to produce a meaningful overview of what these castles offer on an individual basis, there are simply so many of them, but anyone beginning a tour of castles in the region should begin at Château de Blois, the Château de Chambord and Château de Cheverny. These three are located south west of Orleans, and offer an excellent starting point from which to start learning about and understanding the history of these magnificent structures.
