Loire Valley Car Trip

Jump to last reply

My husband and I (both in mid-20s) will be in the Loire Valley for 3 nights, staying at a chateau in Chinon. We plan to take the train from Paris and then hire a car at the train station to drive into Chinon. I really would like to see Chenonceau and Chambord, but they are on the opposite end of the Loire from Chinon. I was thinking of taking the train to Orleans, hiring a car there, and then driving to Chenonceau and possibly Chambord on the way to Chinon. It looks doable on the map, but I am wondering if anyone with experience in that area can tell me if it will be too much to do in a day or if it's even worth it. We don't plan to explore inside the chateaus so much, but maybe see some of the grounds and the exterior. Our plans for the rest of our Loire Valley trip are to bike around the area, see some chateaus, visit some wineries, and relax at our chateau.

Thank you!
