LOIRE VALLEY - castles in the mist; hues of red and gold
25th-31st October 2020
I notice that Autumn is more the season of the soul than of nature.'
To journey around the chateaux of the Loire Valley is to step into an enchanted, fairytale land where castles rise majestically and dense dark forests create the backdrop. Stunningly elegant gardens surround the magnificent Renaissance monuments, and three wide, gently flowing rivers pass through this magical region.
A part of the world disproportionately blessed with riches - the Loire Valley is a lush green land of gently undulating countryside interspersed with charming towns and magnificent, storybook castles.
Undoubtedly an exceptional place to visit in the Autumn; chateaux looming out of the early morning mist while vineyards stretch along its majestic river providing the autumn evenings with a tapestry of purple and gold as their leaves wither and fade.
