Best known for its beautiful valley, with pleasant climate, chateaus and pretty villages, the Loire is also France’s longest river.

Due to its scenery and the numerous sights on its route, the Loire is a very popular river for cruising and barging (or narrow boating.). Boat hire is available in many places along the river and this is definitely one of the world's best cruising routes.

The water that will become the Loire starts its journey on the Massif Central and completes it in the Atlantic Ocean.
