The Loire region deserves its nickname of the Garden of France, with its fertile lands on which famous royal residences are built - legacies of the Renaissance and jewels of French architectural heritage.
Owners and admirers of these residencies reveal them to us in this film. Chambord is the largest of them. The former hunting lodge of Beauregard is a more secluded residency, and houses an astonishing portrait gallery. Straddling the river Cher, Chenonceau is also known as the “Castle of Ladies”, in reference to its successive female residents – Diane de Poitiers and Catherine de Médicis. The Garden of Love and the Garden of Music enchant visitors at Villandry. And finally, Brézé houses Europe’s largest underground fortress.
