Loire Valley and its Castles


"Everything disappeared when I saw the banks of the Loire and the hills of Touraine. I was entirely devoted to my delightful sensation... "Honoré de Balzac.


From Versailles, drive your classic car to the Loire Valley. This cradle of French art witnessed the passage of famous authors of the French literary heritage such as François Rabelais, Jean de La Fontaine, Honoré de Balzac or George Sand. After a gastronomic and touristic stopover at the Château de Blois, let yourself be guided

by our touristic application specially designed for Cartis Classic Car.


Book with our partner, one of the most beautiful hotels in the region, your dinner and night before leaving the next day to take off in a hot air balloon under the rising sun. Visit the Château d'Amboise and travel by classic car along the enchanting roads of the Loire Valley to the Château de Chenonceau. Book your visit to this Château des Dames, a jewel of the Loire Valley architecture, whose history was marked by the passage and involvement of many women such as Diane de Poitiers or Catherine de Médicis.


Then get back on the road and stop at one of our addresses near Cheverny to taste the local gastronomy and rest. The next day, visit the Chateau de Cheverny and the Chateau de Chambord, the largest of the Loire Valley castles, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the brainchild of King François I, the emblematic king of the French Renaissance period, before heading back to Paris.
