If your European travel dreams center around a love of castles, a vacation in the Loire Valley of France is the destination you’ve been imagining. Many regions boast about their abundant fairytale castles, but the Loire Valley truly delivers on this promise in a kid-friendly way. One day you can experience a chateau’s history via a digital iPad tour; the next, you can float above it on a hot air balloon ride. Play tag in the formal gardens or kayak by on the river. These grand estates are all just a short drive from each other, meaning the Loire Valley is the best as far as hassle-free logistics. To maximize the castle focus, book a stay in a kid-friendly historic property. Many offer bikes for riding around the grounds, petanque courts for playtime and even pools for splashing on warm summer afternoons.

This is a challenging time for our clients given the uncertainty around the spread of coronavirus, particularly for those with near-term travel plans in impacted areas. We’re working with our suppliers on being flexible with their booking conditions, and enabling families to postpone travel to a later date without a penalty, when possible. Likewise, given the unpredictability around destinations that may be impacted in the future, we’re helping clients planning new trips and understand ways that they can protect themselves until the situation improves. We are ready to help our clients work through questions and concerns.
