Renaissance Castles Getaway
Loire France

This short riding getaway (3 nights with 2 riding days) leads you on horseback to some of the most famous Loire castles for a quick trip back in history: Chambord, Chenonceau, Saumur, and Chinnon.
Guided by local guides, you will have the great pleasure of riding in the beautiful landscape of the Loire Valley and the unique privilege of arriving on horseback to the doorsteps of the impressive castles. Sometimes days you enjoy a guided visit, other times our stop will include a garden festival, a horse show, a wine tasting or your own time to explore the castle solo. This tour lets you truly experience the French "art de vivre" and savour the French cuisine! You will be stay overnight in the same private castle for the duration of this shortened version of our Renaissance Castles of the Loire 8-day itinerary. Each day you will have dinner with the owners of the castle and taste the  incredible gastronomy from the Heart of France in the excellent local gourmet restaurants, enjoy picnics with foie gras, and discover several shows in the castle at night. Tailor made, this luxury program is limited to eight riders each departure.
