A visit to Chateau Villandry here in the Loire Valley is one of our top recommendations for our clients. It is beautiful all year round but its gardens change with the seasons and spring is a great time to visit...

Perhaps often overlooked on the normal toursist trail of the city of Tours the church of St,Etienne is,in our opinion, well worth a visit.
Its interior is of cathedral proportions and is a delight.

Chateau de Cheverny opens its doors on the 1st of April and the month is a great time to visit as their river of over 100,000+ tulips, 10 metres wide by 160 metres is a joy to behold! The fully furnished chateau is well worth a visit on its own but this adds a whole new dimension to this famous Loire Valley residence

We would have to plump for Chateau de Chenonceau as it never disappoints, whether it is a personal visit or a visit by guests at one of our holiday rentals. We have spent time here during every season of the year and even experienced its delights at Christmas when it is even more enchanting than normal.
We have just updated our page on Chateau de Chenonceau on the website.
