A morning departure for Dover and our Channel crossing to France. Upon arrival, we continue on to the Loire arriving during the late evening for our 5-night stay.


A leisurely morning followed by a short drive to the magnificent Château de Chenonceau, one of the most photographed locations in the area. Set in 70 hectares of park with landscaped gardens and forests on either side of the River Cher, the château with its stylised moat, turrets and 16th Century towers is everything a fairy-tale castle should be.


This morning we travel to Blois, where we visit the Royal Château of Blois, the handsome former seat of the dukes of Orléans, and residence to seven kings and ten queens of France. After a little free time in the town to explore the twisting medieval streets, historic buildings, pretty squares and cafés, we return for free time in Amboise.


Journey through the countryside and enjoy a visit to Villandry Chateau with its world-renowned gardens. Later we spend time in Tours, situated between the Loire and the Cher Rivers. This historic city has half-timbered wooden houses and cobbled streets.


A morning visit to the fairy-tale Chateau at Azey-le-Rideau. Smaller than many of its neighbours, it has a charming location on an island and is renowned for its famous water mirror, which gives a wonderful reflection of the chateau. Stroll through the peaceful parkland before returning to Amboise. A visit to the Chateau du Clois Luce, where Leonardo da Vinci spent his last few years, is included.


After an early start, we travel up through France, to Calais for the short sea crossing to Dover. Then it’s homeward bound.
