Description

The Loire Valley is famous for its impressive chateaus and wines in its well-known towns that include Orleans, Tours, Chartres and Bourges. Two of the largest and most beautiful examples of French châteaus are Chambord and Chenonceau. To preserve the history and tradition these two châteaus have been bought by the French government and open their doors to tourists year-round. Chenonceau recently celebrated its 500th anniversary (1513 – 2013).
