It feels like you’re in a dream. It’s because Loire is perfect. Dramatic gardens sculptured so every plant, every stretch of grass, every tree has been planned, pruned and perfected. Every turn is an impressionist painting. You’re in an architect’s dream. Artists and writers escape here – Leonardo da Vinci spent his final years here. The pace of life is simple but extravagant. You sleep in castles, dine in gardens and live like kings. When you ride through Loire, everything is perfect. Perfect as only the French can make it.
