Discover more about school trips to Loire Valley

The Loire Valley is known as the garden of France, thanks to its top-quality produce – some of the best restaurants in Paris source their ingredients from this area!

What this means for your school trip is that you’ll undoubtedly have the opportunity to visit one of the colourful markets, where your students can practise their French with the stallholders as they buy a lunch of delicious cheeses, charcuterie and fruits.

The Loire Valley is also famous for its magical châteaux and you must include a visit to at least one or two in your school trip. Most of the châteaux date from the 13th to 17th centuries. Some favourites among our groups include the Château de Chenonceau, which extends across the River Cher, and the Château d’Ussé, said to be the inspiration behind Charles Perrault’s version of The Sleeping Beauty (La Belle au bois dormant).
