Centre

From Orleans to Chartres, while passing by the famous ones and splendid Loire castles, the history of the Centre area is combined with the french history. The "Valley of the Kings", where the Loire curves, shells an incomparable chain of Renaissance castles. In this "Garden of France", where light and softness of living are legendary, the men worked a mosaic of harmonious landscapes, with calm horizons. If there is one castle you shouldn't missed when you remain in this area, it is Chambord. Built by Léonard de Vinci at the request of François the Ist, this top of elegance, with its 440 rooms and its 365 chimneys, marks the apogee of a glorious time. In Chartres, the words will miss you to describe the majesty of the cathedral and its stained glasses, the richest and most complete building of France for the period of the Middle Ages. In this area with prestigious historical past, the art of the table is not a vain word and gastronomical tourism gained its letters of nobility there.

With the liking of your regional tours, you will stop in the Sologne, famous for its game but also for its asparagus cultures, potatoes, pear and cherry. A small hunger will allow you some tasty discoveries like Rillons de Tours, the Andouillette in Vouvray wine or Jargeau... As regards cheeses, the area like the entire country has some delicious examples, since after a wine tasting in the cellars with hillside of the town of Sancerre, you will be able to make a halt in the small village of Chavignol where you will discover its famous Crottin of the same name, goat's milk cheese to the incomparable taste... Lastly, we cannot finish this short outline without evoking the famous tart of the sisters Tatin, the young ladies of Lamothe Beuvron, with delicious caramelized apples...
