Centre-Val de Loire travel guide

4.3
Centre is a large inland region around the Loire Valley made up of six departments and known for its wealth of places to visit, including fine historical towns, remarkable gardens, forests, fruit orchards, vineyards, and its many renovated châteaux. Its natural landscape includes the rich, fertile valleys of the Loire River and its tributaries and is extremely conducive to outdoor sightseeing. The official name for the region is frequently combined in tourist literature with the French appellation Val-de-Loire to produce the combination Centre-Val-de-Loire, reflecting this region's embrace of the renowned valley of the river Loire. Notable for its historic towns, architecture, and wines, the Centre region has been inhabited since the Middle Palaeolithic period.
