 About the Book 

The historic playground of English and French royalty is today the playground of the sophisticated traveler, by virtue of its lavish chateaux, spectacular son-et-lumieres, concerts, and world-famous vineyards. Cadogan travels along the Loire riverMoreThe historic playground of English and French royalty is today the playground of the sophisticated traveler, by virtue of its lavish chateaux, spectacular son-et-lumieres, concerts, and world-famous vineyards. Cadogan travels along the Loire river from Orleans, home of the French perfume houses and site of Joan of Arcs greatest victories, to the surreal world of Anjou with its cave houses and restaurants. The guide explores Blois, its magnificent chateau and National Centre of Magic- Tours, the mini-Paris of the region- and medieval Touraine, the garden of France. There is imaginative advice on making the most of the Valleys renowned beauty -- from hot-air ballooning to canoeing along the Loire itself.
