Five Reasons to Visit Loire Valley with Your Family

Before you check out the slideshow below and find out just what makes the Loire Valley such a perfect destination for families, a brief note of caution. This place is really only suited to people who want to take in a rich history, stay in elegant chateaux, ride through fields of sunflowers under a summer sky, expose their children to educational, active and exceptionally fun outdoor activities, and dine on fresh, local and impeccably prepared French cuisine night after night.

Still with me? OK, fine. Go ahead and check out the slideshow for a taste of what the Loire Valley has to offer. I mean, if you’re into that kind of thing.

Your kids will say the best part of the trip was the horseback riding and fencing lessons. You’ll say it was the wine. You’ll all agree to split the difference and call it the châteaux.
