Enjoy an amazing day exploring the magnificient scenery of the castles of the Loire Valley.
Duration of tour: 12 hours
During the Renaissance period, the Loire Valley was the favoured place of the Kings of France and their courtiers. They left us many castles of amazing architectural elegance. Art and history mingle with a certain sweetness of life in this region known as the 'Garden of France'. You will visit the castles of Chambord, Amboise and the Chenonceau which is also known as 'Chateau de Femmes' or 'the castle of six ladies'. This is to honour the succession of powerful French noblewomen of Chenonceau, who each made an impact on the castle, forming it into the lovely chateau we see today. You will also enjoy a delicious three course lunch during this tour.
Local transportation, services of a driver-guide, 3 course lunch with wine and entrance fee to the 3 castles.
