Centre - Loire Valley

Pastoral green landscapes, stunning Gothic cathedrals and hundreds of miles of dedicated cycling paths make this French region an outdoor paradise. 

Centre-Loire Valley is the geographic center of historic France, a landlocked region blessed with vast fields, verdant valleys and unspoiled wetlands. Visit sumptuous châteaux, take a bike ride through quaint villages and enjoy locally produced wine at one of the Loire Valley’s esteemed vineyards. 

Compared to the south, life is far more fast-paced in the northern part of Centre-Loire Valley as it enjoys quick transportation links to Paris. Head for the regional capital of Orléans to see the Sainte-Croix Cathedral. Families will enjoy Parc Floral de la Source, which has a play area and hosts puppet shows.

Explore the largest city in the region, Tours, known for its landmark St. Gatien’s Cathedral and its attractive historic center. The nearby medieval town of Loches has fortresses and cobbled streets, while the city of Chartres is home to a Gothic cathedral with blue-tinted stained-glass windows.

The River Loire is the namesake of the region and provides top-notch fishing opportunities in its slow-moving waters. Explore the surrounding vineyards and visit one or more of the many grand castles that dot the landscape. Sniff the flowers in the gardens of Château de Villandry and sketch the distinctive French Renaissance architecture of Château de Chambord. 

Outdoor adventure is in ample supply in Centre-Loire Valley. Appreciate nature in the forest of La Sologne, which is crisscrossed by hiking trails. Swim in a lake at La Brenne Natural Park and try to spot wild boar and red deer in its woodlands.

To get to Loire Valley, fly into Angers Loire Airport or Tours Val de Loire Airport. TGV trains depart from Tours and serve the surrounding regions. Cycling is a popular pastime in Centre-Loire Valley with hundreds of miles of signposted routes. Rent a bike or sign up with a cycling tour group that will help you with luggage and route-planning. For prime cycling conditions, plan your trip for May or June when temperatures are mild and warm. 

Centre-Loire Valley is a popular vacation option, offering a wonderful combination of medieval history, rural landscapes and classic French architecture.
