The Loire Valley is world famous for its beautiful châteaux, once the playground of Kings and their courts, but the Loire Valley offers much more, beautiful abbeys, cathedrals, vineyards and caves.
Beautiful wine, great food and a leisurely pace of life makes this a very peaceful place. I visited some beautiful places, rich in history and architecture, such as the Château Chenonceau, such a romantic place, I loved it, and Chateau D'Azay-le-Rideau.
The vineyards offering wine tasting, Vouvrays - makes still and sparkling white wine often aged in chalk caves.

My first stop was Amboise, famous for its Chateau and the Chateau du Clos Luce , Leonardo Da Vinci’s last home and the place where he died.
I stayed at Château du Pray, overlooking the Loire river. What a lovely place. The staff are excellent.
The restaurant has a Michelin star. The dining room is intimate and walled with 16th century tapestries as well as owners' coats of arms and initials on the ceilings, with lovely stained glass windows. On a hot day you dine on the terrace with a view of the gardens. A delight.
Michelin Star chef Frederic Brisset arrived at Chateau du Pray in 2009 and he has had his Michelin Star since 2011. His food is magic. What a chef!
