Under the Spell - Loire Valley, France

From the moment I heard about Loire Valley I had a strong desire to spend my holidays there :) It is such a charming place if one enjoys exploring French chateaus, gardens, parks and picturesque towns. And it is also famous for the white sparkling wine :)
I choose Blois town to stay and explore the area. Blois is gorgeous with its stunning chateau and old town. We went for a very nice dinner at Le Bistrot du Cuisinenier. The service in this restaurant can be a bit patchy but the food is very pleasant :)

I tried to capture the Loire Valley scenery, hope the photos will inspire to visit this region of central France too :)

The photos below are from the medieval Villandry Garden, Amboise, Château de Chenonceau, Château de Chambord and Blois.
