Countryside escapes in the river valley of Loire

The Loire Valley of central France has been drawing travelers for 100s of years to its lush, riverfront landscapes, where many elegant chateaus and gardens appear to come straight out of a fairy tale. Days here are spent touring vineyards and sampling local wines, taking leisurely bike rides in the countryside and hopping around between historic sites, soaking up the culture of the region. Loire vacation rentals put you right in the middle of it all, with plentiful picturesque properties to choose from, whether you prefer stone cottages, large countryside estates or cozy homes in charming villages.

Things to do

Off to the riverfront castles of Loire

The chateaux of the Loire Valley are a big draw to the region. Many were built centuries ago by royals and nobles, as castles or pleasure palaces. You can walk around a couple of the most extravagant buildings today, admiring lavish gardens, expensive decor and imaginative facades that appear to belong on the pages of a children's picture book. At the Renaissance-era Chateau de Chambord complex, you can follow walking and biking paths, join guided tours and watch entertaining shows. Nearby, Chateau de Chenonceau is built over a river and features art galleries and elegant waterfront lawns.

Activities

Discovering the sights of Loire

With more than 100 miles to explore in the valley of the river Loire, you'll want to spend some time sightseeing its scenic vistas. Tours of some of the historic sites and popular chateaux are available, or you can opt to hop around to the local vineyards that thrive here, tasting locally produced wines along the way. The entire Loire Valley is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, so there's no shortage of historic gems to discover, whether you join an excursion or make your own way around, stopping for picnics in quiet fields and walks along the waterfront.

Weather

Spring blooms and summer sun in Loire

The spring and summer months in the Loire Valley are quite magical, as the winter snow melts away to reveal the vibrant greenery and stunning gardens at estates along the river. You'll need a sweater in spring, but, by early summer, afternoons typically average in the pleasant 70s, perfect for bike rides into the village for lunch from your Loire vacation rental. These warm, golden months tend to be the most popular time to visit, so be sure to book your rental early to ensure your preferred property is available.

Natural features

Heading outside in the Loire Valley

This region is defined by the river Loire that runs through, establishing a fertile valley full of lush greenery that paints a picture-perfect scene. Spending time outdoors discovering the parks and gardens here is any easy feat. You can enjoy bike rides along the river, or simply sit out on the lawn of your Loire vacation rental each evening to watch the sunset paint the sky in shades of pinks and oranges. If you're looking for spots to hike, consider the many nature preserves here, such as the Regional Natural Park of Brenne, where you'll find wetlands and bird life.
