Châteaux Around Parçay les Pins

Chataux Map

There are more than 300 châteaux in the Loire Valley, more than you can visit in one holiday, so a little advance preparation and planning will pay dividends. Within one hour from Parçay-les-Pins you can visit 18 châteaux.

The Loire Valley was the centre of power in France until the 16th century and after that continued to be the area favoured by the French kings and nobility for hunting and leisure. Their presence in the lush, fertile valley attracted the very best builders, skilled in the use of the natural tuffeau stone to build the châteaux.

Whichever château you visit you can be sure the setting will be beautiful. The Loire Valley is a World Heritage Site and noted as special by UNESCO for “an exceptional cultural landscape, of great beauty, comprised of historic cities and villages, great architectural monuments – the Châteaux – and lands that have been cultivated and shaped by centuries of interaction between local populations and their physical environment, in particular the Loire itself.”

It’s for you to enjoy!

The list below shows the châteaux you can visit easily from Parçay-les-Pins to make it a pleasant outing, rather than a full-scale expedition! Eighteen châteaux are less than an hour away.
