Enjoy a Fairytale Lifestyle in your own Loire Castle
The picturesque Loire valley has always been a place where dreams have been made. Kings of France planned their nation’s cultural renaissance from this beautiful valley region and they have left behind many magical and luxurious castles and estates that hint at a rich and decadent history.
Once renowned as France’s intellectual heartland, the Loire region boasts many picturesque towns and villages and a landscape dotted with fine examples of magnificent Romanesque and Gothic chateaux.
For the English house buyer looking for an historic and elegant home abroad what could be better than a fine French chateau in the Loire? It may sound too good to be true but this is one dream that is becoming a reality for many British homeowners. A good supply of impressive chateau and mansion properties means many people who are looking to relocate to France or purchase a second home for holidays or letting are now considering the glamorous option of owning their own French castle.
English holidaymakers visiting the region may have seen the Royal Residence of Chambord, a gracious example of Renaissance architecture with a classic castle keep and an elaborate interior, or one of the other magnificent chateaux such Chenonceaux, Villandry or Azay-le-Rideau. Some of the finest gothic examples boast lavish interiors, breathtaking gardens and fairytale turrets.
Not only is the Loire Valley the perfect place to find your dream castle home, it’s also a wonderful area to live or visit. The Loire is France’s longest river, running from the Massif Central to the Atlantic coast, and the region’s capital Orleans is perfect for shopping, sightseeing or doing business.
Spectacular scenery, celebrated vineyards, legendary French cuisine and the trademark chic yet tranquil French lifestyle make a move to a grand chateau or luxury mansion in the Loire a fairytale with a very happy ending.
