Paris & The Loire Valley

Paris, the City of Light. The most beautiful and romantic of all cities, it is also the world’s most popular tourist destination. From the comfort and convenience of our centrally located hotel all the sights of the city are a short walk or metro ride away - the iconic Eiffel Tower and Arc de Triomphe, the magnificent Notre-Dame Cathedral and Sacré-Cœur Basilica, the Louvre, the Bateaux-Mouches, and Napoleon’s Tomb.

For a comprehensive experience of the Loire Valley we’ll stay in four historic cities: Chartres, Angers, Saumur and Blois. Cathédrale Notre Dame and it’s world renowned collection of stained glass windows; the mighty cliff top fortress at Angers, home to France’s most famous tapestries; the majestic Château de Saumur; Abbaye Royale de Fontevraud, resting place of the Plantagenets; the monumental Château de Blois; Château Chambord, designed by Leonardo Da Vinci and Château de Chenonceau, stretching romantically across the River Cher will provide a lifetime of memories for everyone.
