One of the glories of the Loire Valley is the shear weight of history that is readily visible: from the earliest times (stone-age relics) to recent events - all are found here.  Of course, what the Loire is best known for is its châteaux but there is vastly more.

We will try to give a little idea of what is available but the area's history and "patrimoin" is extensive and complex, and this web site can't even begin to do justice to it.  If you want to prepare for your visit and get the juices flowing, we suggest that you visit a local bookshop or go on-line and check out the books available about the area.

If you'd like to browse available books now, feel free to take a look at our Amazon book store (and anything you buy will help improve the cottage):
