The Loire Valley in the spring - a great time to visit

Our beautiful region is a joy at any time of year but is especially delightful in springtime when the gardens of the towns and cities and the glorious chateau come alive with colour.

Tuesday for towns in Centre-Val de Loire - Saint Valentin

Today I felt we should feature the small village of Saint Valentin in the department of Indre (36) with tomorrow being Saint Valentine's day. There is not a lot to the village but it comes alive around this time of year, for obvious reasons.
