Having lunch by the gardens of le Château de Chambord - Girls Guide to the World

Explore the enchanting Loire Valley, known as the garden of France, on a captivating 6-night journey.

If it’s French splendor, style, and gastronomy you seek, the Loire Valley will surpass all your expectations. Beyond visiting iconic chateaux like Blois, Chambord, and Chenonceau, we’ll explore historic towns, enchanting villages, and gardens more beautiful than you could imagine.

We’re in France, so no trip would be complete without stops to savor spring produce and the spectacular wines produced here. Chinon’s Cabernet Franc is among our founder’s favorites. Sancerre and Vouvray are world-renowned. Plus, you’ll discover light reds such as Saumur Champigny, which marries perfectly with fish or can be enjoyed chilled in summer.
