The Loire Valley -- a Land of Historic Floods

The Loire Valley is a land of rivers big and small, and with all that flowing water comes beautiful scenery but also historically a risk of flood. All over the Loire Valley there are flood markers showing just how astonishingly high the rivers can get. When you tour with us we will be sure to point out any flood markers we pass. It isn't hard for your imagination to picture how far the surrounding buildings, fields, factories and gardens were inundated and how devastating that must have been.
