About Loire Valley
Once the playground of French aristocracy, you’ll find yourself captivated by the very same charms that first enticed summering kings and noblemen to this region in the 16th-century. A ravishing river meandering through lush fields, past verdant valleys and ancient woodlands, storybook villages perched astride soaring limestone hills. Sprinkled with sprawling chateaux, medieval fortresses and elaborate mansions, this storied landscape is peppered with reminders of a resplendent royal past.
Step back through time in your own elaborate 18th-century chateau, towering turrets atop an ivory stone façade. Let yourself be swept up marble staircases, to balustrade balconies overlooking ornamental gardens. Embrace a gentler pace of life - relax by the pool, boat on the private lake, indulge in a spot of archery or saddle up and explore ancient woodlands by horseback.
Marvel at the majestic chateaux of the surrounding valley, from the gardens of majestic Villandry to the impressive chateaux at Chenonceau and Chambord. Return to your own regal retreat in time for dinner, served by your private chef in the splendour of the great hall. Feast on freshly caught fish, paired with a selection of fine wine from your own vineyards - an exquisite candlelit banquet truly fit for a king.
