Holidays in The Loire Valley, France

'Fairytale’ cannot even begin to describe The Loire. Over a thousand chateaux populate this region, blessed with grand towns and one of France's most famous rivers. Chambord is the largest of the Loire Valley castles and, surrounded by vast and charming parkland and full of Renaissance treasures, is a breath-taking site, particularly if you pull up the drive in a your very own horse drawn carriage. Several of our trips and tours in The Loire will take you through chateaux like this by bike or foot, providing the perfect mix of culture and outdoor pursuits.

And of course, there is also The Loire itself; a wild and unspoilt river that snakes its way through picture-postcard landscape and towns. Cycle, walk or paddle your way down this river on one of greentraveller's many tours through the region and discover what is known as the 'Garden of France'. With holidays to suit families, couples looking for romantic getaways or groups of friends there's something for everyone. You can find this holiday below, along with more holiday suggestions and green-friendly accommodation:
