Chateau Cats in the Loire Valley

Many of our clients are cat lovers and are thrilled to discover that several of the really famous chateaux in the Loire Valley have resident cats. At Chenonceau you might meet Noisette, the ginger cat who likes to hang out at the entrance. Villandry has Felix, a handsome black and white cat who wanders at will throughout the garden and is often photographed by the visitors. And sometimes we are joined for lunch by a friendly cat (although it will be tempted away by the waiters if you don't appreciate its company).

Luckily this client liked cats.

If you would enjoy meeting cats in the countryside and gardens of the Loire Valley let us know. You can book a customised tour by sending us an email or use our contact form.

Modern Art in the Loire Valley

Many of our clients are art lovers. They enjoy seeing Old Masters on the walls of the chateaux but they don't expect to see modern art. Nevertheless, a number of internationally known artists lived and worked in the Loire Valley in the 20th century and their work is on display in some surprising places.

If you are intrigued by the lives of modern artists as much as peers from four or five hundred years ago, let us design a tour for you. Send us an email or use our contact form to arrange your custom tour.
