This Holiday in a nutshell
  • self-guided hotel-to-hotel walking, luggage transported
  • visit some of the region’s most romantic châteaux
  • easy, leisurely walking
  • pause for wine-tastings

West of Tours, the Loire and its many tributaries meander through the Loire-Anjou-Touraine Regional Park, an area of vineyards, rolling farmland, hunting forests and limestone cliffs into which curious troglodytic dwellings have been carved. Crowning these picturesque landscapes are some of the Loire’s most splendid châteaux, from elegant Renaissance palaces such as that of Azay-le-Rideau to sturdy fortresses like that of Chinon.
Looking back on our six days, it's hard to identify the highlights: the wonderful châteaux, the pleasantly varied countryside, or the excellent food and wines? We concluded that, all in all, it was a marvellous all-round holiday.
Staff travel diary
As the walking, accessible to all, is relaxed and leisurely, you have time to visit both these châteaux on this holiday, as well as the château at Ussé, the abbey at Fontevraud and other places of interest such as vineyards and mushroom caves (pay locally in all cases).
