Centre

The prinicipal attraction in the region of Centre is the Loire Valley.  The Loire Valley is an outstanding cultural landscape of great beauty, containing historic towns and villages, great architectural monuments (the châteaux), and cultivated lands formed by many centuries of interaction between their population and the physical environment, primarily the river Loire itself.



In centuries past, the River Loire was a key strategic area, one step removed from the French capital and poised on the crucial frontier between northern and southern France. Kings, queens, dukes and nobles established their feudal strongholds, country seats and, later, their posh playhouses along the Loire, and the broad, flat fertile valley is sprinkled with many of the most extravagant castles and fortresses in France. From sky-topping turrets and glittering banquet halls to slate-crowned cupolas and crenellated towers, the hundreds of Loire Valley châteaux, and the villages, vineyards, and agriculture surrounding them – all an enormous Unesco World Heritage Site – comprise 1000 years of astonishingly rich architectural, artistic and agrarian treasures. If it’s pomp and splendour you’re looking for, the Loire Valley is the place to explore. And don’t forget: it’s also a modern-day wine region dotted with lively cosmopolitan cities like Orléans, Tours, Saumur and Angers.




An epicurean heaven, Henry James described the Loire as 'the land of Rabelais, of Descartes, of Balzac as well as good dinners and good houses' in A Little Tour in France. By dinners, he was no doubt referring to the region's superlative food and wine. The sweetness of life in the Loire Valley has long been renowned - as proof, there have been royal residences here since the Middle Ages - and there is still an abundance of good things: fish from the Loire, game from acres of forest, excellent charcuterie from Tours and famed goat's cheeses from Chavignol.
