  • Discover France's finest Renaissance chateaux: Amboise, Cheverny, Chaumont and iconic Chenonceau
  • Easy paced, guided walking along serene riverside tracks and through sleepy villages and hamlets
  • Explore the medieval market town of Amboise with its UNESCO-recognized chateau - Da Vinci's final resting place
  • Charming hotels offering superb regional cuisine and local wines

On this 8-night, self-guided holiday you'll enjoy wonderfully relaxed walking amid the sublime architecture and picturesque landscapes of the famous Loire region.

Your holiday begins in Chaumont from where you'll follow serene riverside tracks and meander through sleepy villages and hamlets towards the charming wine village of Chitenay, an ideal base from which to discover pretty Cheverny with its impressive 'Secrets of Moulinsart' art exhibition. After a transfer to Bourre, you'll keep the beautiful River Cher close, walking through Montrichard, Chenonceaux - with its iconic chateau on the banks of the Cher - and Montlouis before heading, via verdant fields and vineyards (be sure to enjoy a bit of wine-tasting!) to the medieval market town of Amboise. Explore the narrow, winding streets and take in the imposing Chateau d'Amboise, a royal residence and Da Vinci's final resting place, before returning to Chaumont where you'll experience yet another masterpiece - the Chateau de Chaumont which dates back to the 10th century and hosts the acclaimed International Garden Festival.

We've hand-picked friendly, welcoming hotels for your holiday, full of charm and in some of the Loire's finest locations. You can expect mouth-watering food and wine, with meals included everywhere except Amboise where there's a wonderful selection of restaurants for you to choose from.
