September in the Loire Valley


September is a great time to visit the Loire Valley in France, the major attractions and popular towns are a little quieter and the weather, settling around the low 20's can be very agreeable.



The formal gardens and countryside still have much to offer...


plus you still have time to visit the International Garden Festival at Chaumont-sur-Loire.


The days can end in beautiful sunsets.


If you are looking for accommodation check out 





It's all in the detail...town house in Chinon
