Guided chateaux sightseeing
Loire Valley, France
No visit to the Loire Valley would be complete without experiencing the remarkable history of the region through its legendary chateaux and royal gardens.
Your private guide will escort you through the fascinating castles of Chenonceau and Chambord for an in-depth historical look into one of France's richest regions.
The Chateau of Chambord is a Renaissance masterpiece, being one of the few buildings dating back to the 16th century which remains wholly unchanged from its original design. Its spectacular grounds offer a wealth of flora and fauna and the numerous galleries, terraces, staircases and elaborate rooms are a treasure to discover.
Built in stages over the River Loire and amongst the most striking of chateaux, Chenonceau is known as 'the ladies castle' as it was protected and inhabited by remarkable female historical figures. Once a property of the Crown before becoming a royal residence, the chateau has a unique design and exquisite historical collections including a rare collection of 16th century Flanders tapestries.
