The Loire Valley


A Guide to the Loire Valley

Where to stay in the Loire Valley

Centre-Val de Loire

The Centre-Val de Loire Region

Centre-Val de Loire is one of the 18 administrative regions of France. It straddles the middle Loire Valley in the interior of the country. The administrative capital is Orléans, but the largest city is Tours. Like many contemporary regions of France, the region of Centre was created from parts of three historical provinces: Touraine, Orléanais, and Berry. On 17 January 2015, as part of the reorganization of French regions, the region's official name was changed to Centre-Val de Loire.


The region is composed of six departments, the Eure et Loir * (28), the Loiret (45), the Loir et Cher (41), the Cher (18), the Indre et Loire (37) and the Indre (36). Our tours are based within the last four of these departments, particularly in a wide area around the city of Tours in the Indre-et-Loire.

Loire Valley Wine Tour Cottages

Self catering cottages for weekly rental

Attached to our house in Chabris we have two cottages for weekly rental. These are quickly booked up, especially in the high season, but are popular with Loire Valley Wine Tour clients and those wanting to experience the Loire Valley as part of the village we call home.
