The Complete Loire Valley Honeymoon Guide

From destinations on the rise to the new ways travelers want to explore them.


The Best Times of Year to Go on a Loire Valley Honeymoon for Good Weather

Visit during May, June, or September, recommends Haslett. “July and August can be quite busy, as they are the European school vacations.” Generally, shoulder seasons are safe bets and prices are most reasonable during fall, winter and spring. Finally, keep in mind that Bastille Day is a countrywide celebration on July 14 with the International Gardens Festival taking place throughout the summer in Chaumont-sur-Loire.


Things to Do During a Loire Valley Honeymoon

Visit Chateaux (Castles)

Designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Loire Valley is dotted with many lavish castles, once home to French aristocracy. Don’t miss the most famed chateaux, including Chateau de Chambord, Chateau de Cheverny, and Chateau Royal d’Amboise. “Each one is a perfect setting for photos, and there is an incredible history behind each one,” says Haslett.
