About the Loire Valley

Originally posted on & updated on 10th February, 2024

People travel from all over the world to marvel at the intrinsic beauty of The Loire Valley. The area is home to an amazing natural landscape of rolling hills and as well as many handmade creations such as the many chateaux, churches and monasteries. And since June 2010, the area has another reason to draw in the crowds.

The Loire Valley is now home to the largest natural ‘Swimming Pool’ in France measuring a massive 2,000 sq.m!  And with the region welcoming long hot summers (reaching up to 24ºC (75ºF), and short winters, what better way to cool of than in a swimming area with water purified exclusively through an organic process. That means no chlorine or other chemicals. The pool is located within 1.5 hectares of park and greenery not too far from the Château de Chambord.

These luscious green areas are not uncommon within the Loire Valley, which is not a surprise as it is known by many as the ‘Garden of France’. And most properties in the area also benefit from these beautiful surroundings. Here at My-French-House we have plenty of properties  in the area. Whether you are looking for a larger property with a pool, or a much smaller place, take a look at our selection of properties in the Loire to help you find your perfect property. There is plenty to do in the area too.

One of the most popular outdoor attractions is the Chateau de Chenonceau, a stunning country villa surrounded by a moat and inspired by the Italian Renaissance. The striking building is the most replicated image of all the castles of the Loire, a must see by all. Make sure to go early as the area attracts a lot of visitors during the peak seasons.

The Loire Valley is easily accessible thanks to its excellent transport links. It is well served by major roads and motorways and has good connections from Paris with the TGV trains.
