D 1
Day 1 – Arrival at ORLEANS
You will spend the day touring the city, the Sainte Croix Cathedral, the renaissance-style Hotel Groslot, the home of Joan of Arc, the old neighborhoods of the city-center, and the beautiful floral park that stretches more than 35 hectares to the south of the city, close to the source of the Loiret River. Lodging and breakfast is a 2-star hotel
D 2
Day 2 – CLERY-SAINT-ANDRE – BEAUGENCY (16 km)
Transfer by taxi from Orleans to Clery-Saint-Andre. You will begin the day with a visit to the beautiful, gothic-style church of Notre-Dame-de-Clery, where Louis XI and his wife Charlotte de Savoie are buried. You will walk from there to the banks of the Loire to discover Meung-sur-Loire. You will visit the half-medieval- half-renaissance-style chateau, the collegiate church, the ancient ramparts and the mills in the centre of the old city. Finally, you will take again to the river, the misleading, nonchalant Loire, and follow it to Beaugency for the evening. Lodging and breakfast in 2-star hotel
D 3
Day 3 – BEAUGENCY and CHAMBORD
The morning will be spent in the lovely setting provided by the village of Beaugency. Wandering through the old neighborhoods, you will discover the history of the town, the keep, the house of the Templars, Notre-Dame Abbey, the Hotel-Dieu, and the old bridge. In the start of the afternoon, a taxi will bring you from Beaugency to Chambord, where you will visit the chateau and the residence, both of which were of great importance during the Renaissance in France. The chateau is the incarnation of the royal power of François I and Louis XIV. Lodging and breakfast in a 2-star hotel
D 4
Day 4 – CHEVERNY – CELLETTES (15 km)
Transfer by taxi to the chateau of Cheverny, one of the best-known, which represents a unique uniformity of style. Built during the 17th century, it is richly decorated and houses a beautiful collection of furniture. After visiting the chateau and the park, you will move on to the chateau of Troussay, a manor house dating to the Renaissance, which today houses a museum on the Sologne. You will continue your hike to the chateau of Beauregard, once a property of François I. Be sure not to miss the Galerie des Illustres, a gorgeous collection of antique furniture and a rare 16th century kitchen. Transfer by taxi from Cellettes, the city in which this chateau it located to Blois. – Lodging and breakfast in a 2-star hotel
D 5
Day 6 – Visit of the chateaux of CHAUMONT SUR LOIRE and FOUGERES
Transfer by taxi to Chaumont. Built on a raised promontory, the chateau of Chaumont sur Loire resembles more closely a medieval fortress than a renaissance residence. You will visit the historical part of the chateau, filled with antique furniture, the horse stables and the beautifully landscaped park. You may wish to wander along the banks of the Loire. A taxi will take you from Chaumont sur Loire to Fougeres sur Bievre, where you will visit the 15th century fortified castle. It’s an odd one out in this area. It looks defensively medieval with its massed turrets and its inner courtyard enclosed on all four sides. Escort by taxi to Blois. Lodging and breakfast in a 2-star hotel
