Come and See the Sunflowers

In only a few weeks time it will be sunflower season again in the Loire Valley. The farmers sow them in May and harvest them in September. In between, for a brief but glorious period in July and early August the flowers cover the fields with huge sunshine yellow blooms. If you visit at the right time of year, you cannot miss the sunflowers all over the Loire Valley. Driving from one chateau to another is a guaranteed way to see them and we are always happy to pull over so you can photograph the spectacle.

If you want to experience the sunflower season in the Loire, email us and book a tour in late July.
