Day 1 - 2 Sep 2019
Content: The best way to reach the Loire valley is to rent a car. This airbnb is in the perfect location, it is between most of the famous castles in the Loire valley, most of them are a 10 to 20 minutes drive away.
Day 2 - 3 Sep 2019
Content: The first castle we visited was the beautiful Chenonceau castle! This castle is one of my favourites out of all the castles I visited. You can easily spent the whole day here visiting the inside of the castle, the gardens and the outer buildings. There are restaurants and cafés on site.
Content: The gardens around the castle are stunning! I would recommend visiting in summer or spring when there are all the flowers.
Content: The entrance to the castle is very beautiful too!
Day 3 - 4 Sep 2019
Content: The town of Blois is situated in the middle of most of the popular castles. It is worth a visit, it has a pretty old centre and a beautiful castle.
Content: When I visited Blois there was some beautiful art of the Mona Lisa on the main stairs.
Content: The Blois castle is different from the other castles in the Loire Valley but it is worth a visit. I loved the spiral staircase that you can admire from the courtyard.
