A UNIQUE REGION TO DISCOVER…

The treasures in the Loire Valley

The Loire Valley, the Loir-et-Cher and Sologne region

The Loire Valley is the region in France with the largest number of castles. Their stones are the remaining memory of a land where Kings and Queens wrote some of the most important chapters in the history of France. The majority are UNESCO World Heritage sites, and from one castle to the next, this rich history is unveiled.

In terms of nature, the forests and marshland in the Sologne are a real playground worth a visit for lovers of outdoor activities. Holidays in the region offer an unrivalled tranquillity, and include heritage visits, tours of local producers and nature site visits.

THE SURROUNDING CASTLES

Chambord Castle

Chambord is the largest and most prestigious of the Renaissance Castles, and is a real jewel in the crown of French architecture, as well as nature thanks to its 5,500 ha of grounds with deer and wild boars, and is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Accessible by bike from the campsite through a forest trail, this is a must-visit site when you stay at Huttopia Les Châteaux!
