Loire Valley Tour
After having been picked-up from your downtown accomodation in Paris, you will be chauffeured by our driver-guide to a wonderful day in the Loire Valley. There, you will discover the famous castles and gardens of the Renaissance!
You will be amazed by Chambord, "a marvelous chateau, which legend has that Leonardo da Vinci, then living at the Clos Lucé in Amboise, made several plans & models used for the construction of the chateau." "While visiting Chambord, you will also discover one of Europe's finest parks. The park covers over 13,000 acres and is Europe's largest wooded park."
During your day in the French Countryside, you will also enjoy the visit of the cradle of the Renaissance, Chateau Amboise, one of the first truly royal residences of its kind.
And at Chenonceau you will admire the wealth of decoration both inside and outside, which makes Chenonceau the most popular chateau in France.
You will have lunch at "Au Gateau Breton". The restaurant offers a fixed menu that is subject to change. The sun terrace in back of this 2-century-old Breton-type inn, a short walk from the château, is a refreshing place. In cool months, meals are served in the rustic dining rooms.
