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.
