It’s understandable that the Loire is known as the garden of France, a UNESCO world heritage site where you will find fantastic scenery, food and fun for all ages. With it’s plethora of majestic chateaux’s, elegant gardens and superb restaurants not to mention France’s longest wine route!

Only a 5 hour drive from the Eurotunnel in Calais it’s a must see area of France.

Don’t forget to pack your bicycles and canoes as the Loire valley is a pure paradise for those wishing to explore on two wheels with lots of excellent cycle routes passing unspoilt villages and rivers.
