Description

The Loire Valley is synonymous with chateaux and they are as diverse as they are numerous with over 300 in total to explore. Embark on this eight night holiday which takes you on a journey of discovery through some of the most prominent chateaux of this famous UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The chateaux look like they’ve come straight from a fairytale with their turrets, pinnacles, lanterns and moats. There’s the beautiful Renaissance chateau at Chenonceau which famously straddles the Cher, the magnificent royal palace of Amboise proudly dominating the riverside and town, and the dramatic chateau at Chaumont, once owned by Catherine de Medici (before being forcibly ‘exchanged’ for Chenonceau in a bitter love-battle), and occupying one of the most stunning sites of all the river’s chateaux.

Age restrictions – this holiday is suitable for older children and teenagers, reasonably fit, regular cyclists, and with previous experience of cycling on roads.
