Châteaux of the Loire Valley
Châteaux Of The Loire Valley
With our partner CIJP.
Take this fantastic opportunity to discover the fairy-tale châteaux of the Loire Valley, stepping back in time to explore France’s royal past.
Programme Of Events
After departing from Opéra Garnier – to give you a foretaste of the splendour and beauty of the buildings you are about to visit – you will head straight for the Château de Cheverny, to explore its opulent interior and elegant gardens. Next on the agenda will be Blois, where, after taking some time for lunch, you will visit the château. In contrast to the uniform grace of Cheverny, this castle is composed of four different sections, all hailing from different periods of history and different architectural movements.
On Sunday, after a Loire breakfast, you will head to the Chenonceau, which is perhaps the most famous of all the châteaux in the Loire Valley. It sits on the edge of the River Cher, its attractive exterior accentuated when reflected in the water. During your visit, you should make sure to explore its magical gardens, as well as its impressive collection of tapestries. Your final stop will be the Château d’Amboise castle, with its Mediterranean gardens, and its chapel, which contains the recently restored tomb of Leonardo de Vinci.
