This April my wife and me- we visited the Loire Valley 180 km away from Paris and located in the middle part of the Loire River in central France. It is referred to as the Cradle of the French language, and the Garden of France due to the abundance of vineyards, fruit orchards (such as cherries, which were in blossom!), and artichoke and asparagus fields on the banks of the river. We started early in the morning from the very cozy “Hotel de Normandy” (of which I have reported to you earlier), rented a car at the Montparnasse Railway Station and to the lunch time reached the city of Orleans. The Loire River valley is notable for its historic towns, architecture and wines (we tasted different kinds), but most of all –by its Medieval Castles (Châteaus). We visited Chenonseau, Chambord, Amboise and had a very good night at Blois. All the History of France passed before us! Two days trip was extremely pleasant and informative and could be recommended to those couples who like tasty and not hasty family traveling.
With the best regards
