Loire châteaux

The Loire châteaux, unmissable visits during your holiday!

Each château more majestic than the last, endless bike rides, whole afternoons spent enjoying all the campsite’s activities and its sublime bathing area... Finally you’ve found the perfect recipe for your next holiday in the Centre-Val de Loire! Chambord, Blois, Amboise or Villandry, the greatest architectural masterpieces beckon you to come and taste château life for a truly royal stay.

3 Loire châteaux to visit with the family

From amongst the 22 Loire châteaux, we’ve put together a fairytale selection for a visit with the kids!

Top of the list, the royal estate of Chambord for its 5,500ha park to explore on foot, in a horse-drawn carriage, by bike or even in a boat. The children will adore watching the show put on by the horses and birds of prey in the château stables! Second stop: the Royal Château d’Amboise. Come with the family and walk in the footsteps of its most illustrious resident: Leonardo da Vinci! Bonus: after dark and all summer long a magical son-et-lumière show is projected onto the château façades. 

Bring your adventure to an end at the Château de Cheverny, guaranteed to appeal to all Tintin fans in particular: no you’re not imagining it, it’s almost identical to the Château de Moulinsart! In the depths of its vast wooded estate, relax for a moment with a royal picnic, before hitting the road back to the campsite.

3 Loire châteaux to visit as a couple

Blois, Chenonceau, Villandry: our personal favourites for your romantic tour of the Loire châteaux!

And what’s so special about the Royal Château de Blois? Each of its buildings illustrates a different period, a different style. So, a simple look and a few seconds are all it takes for a journey down the centuries!  At the Château de Chenonceau, or the “Château of the Ladies”, gaze in wonder at the sheer elegance and incredible attention to detail. With its graceful arches stepping out across the River Cher, the château has all the enchantment of a fairytale! 

And finally, fall under the charm of the Château de Villandry and the bewitching beauty of its 6 world-renowned gardens. What better setting for a gentle stroll hand-in-hand on a gorgeous summer’s afternoon?
