The Loire region of France is one that is well-known as the Garden-of France and with good reason. This was once the playground for many of the French Kings who fell in love with the diversity of the landscape. Grand hunting lodges were built for the enjoyment of the French royalty.
Comfort and luxury are hard items to leave behind when royalty visits the country and soon the hunting lodges evolved into grand Chateau. The charm of the Upper Loire is the diversity of its landscape which is made up of a heavenly contrast. Steep mountains merge with rolling hills that give way to deep forests and scattered amid the natural splendor are the many wondrous village of the region.
