Those who travel to the Loire Valley want to see châteaux. In this case, châteaux are real castles, magnificent buildings mainly from the time of the Renaissance. However, wine lovers have long since become accustomed to the double meaning of the word château, which can be not only a castle but also a winery. Nowhere in France do the two châteaux meet as frequently as on the Loire. Whereby the châteaux where wines are made attract far fewer people than the royal castles of Blois, Amboise, Chaumont-sur-Loire, Chambord and what they are all called.

Chambord% probably the most beautiful castle in the Valley of the Kings. (Photo: Züllig)
