Wildlife at the Chateau

The chateaux of the Loire all have large and attractive parks. Many of them are managed with wildlife in mind and it is often possible to get wonderful views of wild birds and animals. At Chenonceau it is not uncommon to see a Red Squirrel scooting across the lawn, rummaging in the leaf litter or peering cheekily at the visitors from a tree. They are the cutest little creatures!

We are experienced wildlife watchers and always point out the native birds, animals and flowers to clients that are interested. The chateaux gardens are home to many beautiful butterflies, the moats and rivers to glittering dragonflies and the woods full of song birds. If you would like to combine a visit to a fabulous chateau with some nature watching, email us.
