The Loire Valley was at one time the social centre of France, the place royalty went to get away from it all, just an hour outside of Paris. Today, visitors will feel like royalty, strolling through the majestic gardens, marvelling at the extravagance as each chateau you visit appears to be larger and more opulently decorated than the last. Touring Sleeping Beauty’s Castle and the Chambord, the Loire’s largest chateau, are enough to make anyone feel they’re in a fairytale.

While exploring the Loire Valley, you can row a boat under the half bridge half castle that is the Chenonceau, and sleep in the same place that was once a medieval resting place for English kings. And if that’s not enough of the royal treatment, the wines, produce and game of the Loire Valley have sustained the high quality they’re known for, allowing the average visitor to eat like a king.
