"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience but where he stands in times of challenge and controversy..." - MARTIN LUTHER KING JR.

Region of France - The Loire Valley

Rich in history, fine gastronomy, exquisite wines and outstanding castles, the Loire Valley, also known as the “Garden of France”, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site which offers fantastic visits. The Loire Valley is located in the heart of France, only an hour from Paris by high speed train.

 “When I was a little girl, we used to visit the Loire Valley with my parents. Each time my father chose the perfect stop to have a good lunch followed by a tour in a Château. Today, here is my best choice”
