Loire valley area covers most of central western France between the
southern limits of Brittany and Normandy to the north, and the northen
slopes of the Massif Central hills to the south. It is a region of
fields and slow flowing rivers, a profoundly agricultural area which
includes some considerable expanses of forest in the Sologne, a number
of areas of vineyards - notably the vineyards Touraine and Sancerre -
and a large area of lakes and wetlands known as la Brenne, a noted area
for bird life. It is of course also an area renowned for its
heritage most visible in the form of its many fabulous
mediaeval fortresses, such as Chenonceau (photo).
