The Loire Valley between Sully-sur-Loire and Chalonnes has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2000.
With its islands and alluvial forests, the Loire represents the last wild river in Europe, with a unique biodiversity, just a few minutes from the camping at Chambord. In summer, numerous sand strikes appear along its course.
To explore, understand and share the Loire, you can find a unique balcony over the river in Blois/La Chaussée, by visiting the Loire Observatory: scenographic space, educational workshops, navigation in the port of La Creusille, a walk along the bargemen’s path, or La Maison de la Loire in a former 17th century post house in Saint-Dyé-sur-Loire, the former port of Chambord, where you can visit an intuitive and interactive multi-sensory scenography on the “Renaissance of the Loire”.
Mont-Près-Chambord is also the gateway to the Sologne, with its woods, ponds and secret paths. A paradise for hunters, Sologne preserves its traditions and culture, as well as its gastronomy. You can discover the history of Sologne through the charm of a museum on the water in Romorantin, and for car lovers complete by the Matra museum.
And to better understand the 3000 ponds of Sologne, their ecological, historical, cultural and economic role, visit the Maison des étangs in Saint Viâtre, installed in typical Sologne houses.
