Loire Valley

“The Regal”

In the valley of kings, we’ll roll out the red carpet for you. You’ll stay in grand châteaux. You’ll visit Touraine and think you’ve died and gone to epicurean heaven. You’ll enjoy a stately dinner at the impressive Du Rivau. There are centuries of history here too, and we’ll take you straight to the heart of it.

HOTEL TYPE

Signature

We use premium hotels that are unique expressions of the region. Often they’ve had a previous life as a monastery or a castle, but in every case they offer an exceptionally comfortable stay.

Bistro

These are stylish 4-star properties that offer a casual and comfortable stay. Often without a 24-hour concierge or room service, they tend to be smaller family-run hotels that are perfect for the region.

Erin Reed

Travel Advisor

For Erin, traversing countries under her own speed is a quiet obsession. If not walking or running the route, pedalling the roads or climbing the hills and mountains, she can be found in the interior of British Columbia anticipating her next excursion and living her mantra of, “Life is short but sweet for certain, let’s celebrate.” Call Erin at 1-800-678-1147 x 209.

In the News

“For other travelers, the trip of a lifetime may be about experiencing a familiar location in a new way. On Butterfield & Robinson’s cycling tour of France’s Loire Valley, travelers bike past acres of the valley’s sunflower fields, dine at the home of renowned local chef Jean-Claude Rigollet, and overnight at the 15th-century Châteaux du Rivau, an estate where Joan of Arc was once a guest.”
