Royal Scenery in a Natural Treasure Chest

Blois beautifully lines the Loire Valley with a sublime combination of nature and architecture. Standing between Orléans and Tours, two other Loire Valley gems, Blois - the most important city of Loir-et-Cher -enjoys its proximity to the agricultural Beauce area and Sologne forest.

Slate tiles and tuffeau stones, a pattern reminiscent of the Loire Valley, are prominent in Blois and the old town is full of charming houses. Blois train station is near the Gothic Renaissance Castle of Blois, considered one of architecture’s masterpieces. Originally occupied by King Louis XII, it is nowadays partly taken over by the Museum of Art, offering a collection of paintings, sculptures and ancient tapestries. The royal gardens also evoke the Renaissance and provide a lovely view of the city. Other gardens invite you to enjoy the magical scenery by the Loire river.

Walk 2 minutes more towards the commercial street to discover the House of Magic, a unique example in Europe of its genre. Take some time and walk along the Loire, where the historic Jacques Gabriel Bridge, built in the 18th century, links the two banks of the city. Follow this route to discover the magnificent Castle of Cheverny and the not-to-be-missed Castle of Chambord.
