About us

The Society « Châteaux de la Loire, Vallée des Rois » (“Châteaux of the Loire, the Valley of Kings”) was created in 2008 to group 50 monuments together, all located along the Royal River Loire - between Nantes (Département 44) and Gien (Département 45).

As a result of the merger with the Historic “Route des Dames de Touraine”, the Society unites 57 sites since 2009.

The primary purpose of the Society is to provide a frame or structure to the tourist offer and to the sites of cultural heritage, sites that are listed as Historic Monuments or labeled "Remarkable Gardens", all located in the Regions “Centre” and “Pays de Loire”, within that cultural entity called the Loire Valley, and all are open to the public. 

The Society currently administrates 73 sites A document is circulated in more than 600 000 copies through the Loire Valley and its surroundings, in a view to grouping the entire cultural offer together in a single document. It will help you organize and prepare for your visit, and it presents the diversity of the cultural richnesses offered along the Loire River.
