Visiting Loire Valley of France
You’ve been to Paris, sampled Bordeaux, experienced Marseille and now you’re satisfied…Or are you? Though nothing is reputed to surpass the brochure delights of France, we have packaged a destination that will command your attention, steal your heart and whisk you away to another world – or more particularly, a rural paradise.
Loire Valley is a nostalgic insight to aristocratic France, referred to the Cradle of the French Language and renowned as an international treasure. UNESCO were so enraptured by the orchards and vineyards lining the Loire River, they felt compelled to protect and cultivate the flourishing area, for its history, beauty and exceptional qualities, from the fruity aromatics of the Spring air, to the grey domes and lush grounds of Chateau de Valencay.

Preserved and inspiring, the stained glass windows are a magical vista to be beheld and the detailed carvings will soon inhabit your imagination.
