The greatest European Chateaux

Loire Valley Chateaux (Les Chateaux de la Loire, 2012)

Director: Jacques Vichet


The Loire Valley is often referred as "The Garden of France" or "the cradle of the French language", but foremost, it is a land of magnificent beauty in which green and grey are blended perfectly. Eurochannel welcomes you to an amusing stroll across the valley to discover some of the most luxurious and traditional French castles in Loire Valley Chateaux.

This four-episode documentary provides a deep immersion into centuries of French history. Kings, lords and rich families have been the honor guests of such magnificent places. With this documentary miniseries, you'll discover in tantalizing detail, all of the intricacies involving the construction and history of France's most exclusive chateaus: The Royal Chateau of Amboise, the Chateau of Villandry, the Royal Chateau of Blois, and the Chateau of Cheverny.

Filmed in High Definition, Loire Valley Chateaux goes beyond the documentary standards. Alongside in-detail explanations of the architecture, and entertaining stories of kings, its beautiful shots illustrate the ideals of the Renaissance and the Age of the Enlightenment on French thought and design in the Loire Valley.
