Our single-centre holidays in the Loire valley are set in the neighbouring villages of Montsoreau and Candes-St-Martin. Set just 1km apart, both villages make the list of ‘le plus belle villages de France’, or the most beautiful villages of France. Candes-St-Martin sits on the point of confluence of the Loire and Vienne rivers and has a charming cobbled village square, complete with 12th century church and an excellent local restaurant. A short walk along the river is Montsoreau, an old river port from the medieval period, when the Loire was a major trade route.
