Activity breaks in the Loire

The Loire Valley not only boasts fields full of photogenic sunflowers and bustling markets, but it's also known for its world-class wines, too. Home to the longest river in France, you'll discover beautiful wildlife and stunning scenery when you embark on one of our activity breaks in the Loire.

With its gorgeous chateaux and grand castles, it's easy to see why the Loire Valley has a special place in the affections of visitors to France. And when it comes to the cuisine, fruit, vegetables and other food grown here are of the very finest quality. When you eat out, you can expect consistently high standards. The Loire vineyards produce a wider variety of wines than any other wine region in the world - and they're always divine.

At Headwater, our adventure breaks in the Loire are in the heart of the Loire Valley. It has one of Europe's most congenial climates, making it the perfect destination for walking and cycling trips.
