Day Trip to the Loire Valley

Discover the Loire Valley with our partner To Be Erasmus in Paris

Take this fantastic opportunity to discover the fairy-tale châteaux of the Loire Valley, stepping back in time to explore France’s royal past. On this journey, you will follow in the footsteps of François 1er, the King of the French Renaissance. This monarch was passionate about architecture, and so you have him to thank for the beauty of châteaux such as Chambord and Fontainebleau.


You will leave Paris Porte Maillot at 8am, and head for the Château de Chenonceau, where you will take a guided tour of the castle. This is one of the most famous and beautiful of the châteaux, its arched façade reflected perfectly in the lake which surrounds it.

After Chenonceau, it will be time to visit the Château de Chambord, which is perhaps the more spectacular of the two. Perfectly symmetrical and built with a tranquil elegance and grace, this palace is set in extensive grounds, which, when you visit, will be blooming with the first shoots and leaves of Spring. Unfortunately, after this visit, it will be time to head back to the hustle and bustle of Paris, where you will arrive at 8pm.

  • Departure : Sunday 12th August from Paris Porte Maillot at 8am (please be there 20 minutes before the coach leaves).
  • Arrival back in Paris : 8pm the same day.
  • Included : transport and guided visits of the Châteaux de Chenonceau and Chambord.
  • Not included : Personal expenses and meals.
