The castles in the Loire Valley look like a vision straight out of a fairytale with their many lanterns, gables, dormer windows, columns, lofty chimneys, turrets and pinnacles! Chambord, Chenonceau and Azay-le-Rideau illustrate a key period in the history of architecture and also a certain sensibility. Before they were built, architecture and buildings had never really inspired people in quite the same way.
The Loire Valley castles can be visited all year long, and children are welcome too: fifty sites have created fun and instructive games for them. Huddled around them are towns with rich pasts and art treasures Blois, Tours, Chinon, Angers and homes evoking the memory of Rabelais, Descartes, Leonardo da Vinci and Balzac.
