Excursion to the Loire Valley

Excursion to the Loire Valley



Долина Луары If you are look­ing for French splen­dor and style, then the Loire Val­ley will exceed your expec­ta­tions, no mat­ter how great they are! Locat­ed just a few hours from Paris, this region was once of great strate­gic impor­tance. Kings, queens, dukes and nobles came here to found feu­dal cas­tles and then mag­nif­i­cent palaces, which is why this fer­tile riv­er val­ley is dot­ted with hun­dreds of the rich­est aris­to­crat­ic estates of France. Cas­tles with jagged tow­ers, soar­ing domes and glit­ter­ing ban­quet halls, as well as vil­lages and vine­yards that sur­round them, tes­ti­fy to more than a thou­sand years of rich archi­tec­tur­al and artis­tic activ­i­ty.

The Loire Val­ley is also known for its out­stand­ing wines (red, white, rosé and sparkling) and live­ly, sophis­ti­cat­ed cities such as Orleans, Blois, Tours and Angers. Not sur­pris­ing­ly, this entire area is a huge UNESCO World Her­itage Site.

Going on a tour, you will vis­it three famous cas­tle of the Loire Val­ley: Cham­bord, Chenon­ceau, Amboise.

Шамбор Cham­bord is the largest cas­tle in the Loire Val­ley, one of the most vis­it­ed cas­tles in France, in its beau­ty and mag­nif­i­cence it can be com­pared only with Ver­sailles. Cham­bord was built as a hunt­ing res­i­dence for Fran­cis I, the cas­tle is sur­round­ed by a vast ter­ri­to­ry with forests and fields. The pomp of the cas­tle are impres­sive at once, its sil­hou­ette is made in the Goth­ic style, and the inte­ri­or is dec­o­rat­ed in the style of the Ear­ly Ital­ian Renais­sance. It took 28 years to build such an impres­sive facil­i­ty, and up to two thou­sand work­ers worked on its con­struc­tion.

Шенонсо Chenon­ceau is one of the most ele­gant French cas­tles. Mag­nif­i­cent fur­nish­ings, beau­ti­ful gar­dens, the mag­ic of archi­tec­ture and the fas­ci­nat­ing his­to­ry of the cas­tle — will not leave any­one indif­fer­ent. The inte­ri­or of Chenon­ceau is dec­o­rat­ed with rare fur­ni­ture and a col­lec­tion of works of art, which includes works by Tin­toret­to, Cor­reg­gio, Rubens, Muril­lo, Van Dyck and Rib­era (be sure to find an unusu­al por­trait of Louis XIV).

Амбуаз Amboise — the res­i­dence of the French kings from the 15th to the 19th cen­tu­ry, its fate is inex­tri­ca­bly linked with the his­to­ry of France. Numer­ous lit­er­ary fig­ures and artists, such as Leonar­do da Vin­ci, whose grave is now locat­ed here, were invit­ed here. Now Amboise is a sym­bol of true lux­u­ry and French style. From the bal­conies, roofs and ter­raced gar­dens of the cas­tle, vis­i­tors can admire the scenery of the Loire Val­ley and enjoy the views that once kings once enjoyed!
