Snow in the Touraine Loire Valley

We are often asked if it snows here in the Touraine Loire Valley. The answer is yes, it does, usually in February. Some years it's just a light powdering on a couple of days, other years we get 15cm coverage for two weeks and the temperature doesn't go above 0°C. When it does that it is beautiful, but picturesque as it is, we can't show it to you except in photos on the blog.

Our tour vehicles are old enough to need a little pampering. They stay tucked up in their garage over winter and don't get exposed to the salt and ice. It's safer that way and they can be kept in working order for many years to come.

But don't be downhearted! The Touraine Loire Valley is beautiful at any time of year and we are here to create an itinerary for you that will delight you with the best the area can offer throughout the warmer months. Email us and you may be surprised by what we suggest including beyond the romantic chateaux.
