 Centre

The birthplace of the royal families that occupied the châteaux, the former provinces of Berry, Touraine and Orleans are known for their rich historical heritage.  Traversed by the capricious Loire, the Centre also offers extremely varied landscapes.

Medieval Abbeys at Noirlac and Saint-Benoît-sur-Loire;  Gothic cathedrals in Chartres, Orleans and Bourges;  prestigious châteaux at Blois, Amboise, Chambord, Chenonceau and Azay-le-Rideau;  famous caves on the banks of the Loire and its tributaries ... The region sees an influx throughout the year of many tourists interested in history, good food, and music at the famous festival "Printemps de Bourges".  With the beauty of its landscapes, its vast forests full of game criss-crossed with hiking trails, and water sports on its rivers, the Centre also is a natural setting conducive to eco-tourism.
