Destination guide

Centre-Val de Loire is France at its finest

The Centre-Val de Loire is, arguably, the jewel in France's crown. This flat swath of land in central-northern France is criss-crossed with vineyards punctuated by palatial chateaux and pretty little villages. Its position between Paris and the South has always made the region an important one, both strategically and gastronomically. If you've nabbed one of the Centre-Val de Loire vacation rentals in the sophisticated cities of Tours or Orleans, you can dive into a dizzying array of culinary delights paired with extraordinary local wines. Outside of the cities, the Loire Valley provides ample opportunities for outdoor fun.

Things to do

Visit a Centre-Val de Loire chateau

It would be simply unthinkable to stay in a Centre-Val de Loire vacation rental and not visit at least one of the magnificent chateaux. The Gothic and Renaissance Chateau de Chenonceau is particularly beautiful, as are the sumptuous gardens at the Chateau de Villandry. Another architectural gem is the Gothic Chartres Cathedral, which is best experienced during one of the nightly summer light shows. For a little slice of history, swing by the former home of Leonardo da Vinci in Amboise, where the artist and inventor spent his last days before his death in the 16th century.

Activities

Centre-Val de Loire by bike or hot air balloon

If you grab 2 wheels in Orleans, you can ride along the impressive Loire a Velo Cycle Path, passing ancient towns and historical sites along the way. The sun-baked summers are perhaps best spent swimming in one of the region's natural swimming areas or paddling along the waterways in canoes in the Loire Valley. This is France's premier hot air balloon area and when you're looking down over the sweeping vineyards and ornate chateaux from your basket, you'll quickly realize why. Golfers will be pleased to hear that the Loire Valley has several 18-hole courses from which to swing their clubs.

Weather

Centre-Val de Loire summers are long and bright

For almost guaranteed good weather, try to score a Centre-Val de Loire vacation rental during the summer months, when the days are always lengthy and glorious. You shouldn't expect to be the only one with the same idea though, so book your rental soon to avoid disappointment. Outside July and August, the weather can be a little more temperamental, though the days can often be sunny. Those who come in spring benefit from a drop in rental prices and far fewer travelers to contend with at the wineries, chateaux and attractions, while the fall foliage can be spectacular.

Natural features

Centre-Val de Loire is a nature lover's paradise

Outside the cities, nature lovers are treated to some seriously beautiful French countryside, characterized by forests, wildlife parks and rivers. Grab a pair of hiking boots and head off with your binoculars to spot all manner of birdlife, from buzzards to woodpeckers. When you're walking along the riverbanks, you may very well spot one of the Eurasian beavers which were successfully reintroduced to the region 20 years ago, while the wetlands teem with reptiles and amphibians. You won't need to look hard to see some of the 100 species of butterfly or 60 species of dragonfly.
