+ The Loir Valley and La Chartre-sur-le-Loir
40 km north of the Loire Valley, the Loir Valley is a land of picturesque villages, and hillsides covered with woods, vineyards and orchards. Above all, it is a land of far-famed vineyards (AOC Jantières and Coteaux du Loir) due to its remarkable sunshine... Here, colours are soft and the climate mild. BercéNational Forest , a remnant of the immense Gallic "Forest of the Carnutes”, is famous for its centuries-old oaks and its hiking trails. Churches and chapels reveal their treasures of frescoes and murals; Mills and washhouses whisper tales of their inhabitants and the manors and châteaux are companions to lush gardens. On the Loire Châteaux route, Le Lude has the soul of an inhabited château. Don't forget La Flèche Zoological Park , one of the finest in Europe.
La Chartre-sur-le-Loir is a delightful, authentic little village with its streets bordered by the Loir: It’s great to stroll there with no specific goal in mind, in the shade of the steep hillside, in impromptu discovery of pretty little shops selling decorative items, antiques, arts and crafts, etc.
