" O happy land
Whatever the season,
whatever the sky
This little nook of countryside
Shall entrance me above all others
The Loire Valley, a languid river that flows over white sand banks and justifies its name as the Valley of the Kings, a strategic place in the middle ages, witness of the first stages of the history of France, the cradle of the most famous chateaux of the French Renaissance. The pleasant atmosphere of the "Garden of France" has inspired artists, poets and novelists. The wines and the food of Touraine will restore and refresh you as you explore the historic centres of Tours, Amboise, Blois and the chateaux of Cheverney, Chenonceaux, Chaumont, Azay le Rideaux, Villandry, Loches and many more.
