If you are more interested in photographing natural sites, fauna and/or flora, just let us know, we will be happy to adjust your itinerary to your own centers of interest.
Day 1: Introduction to the Loire Valley
For your first day in the Loire Valley, discover the little town of Amboise, its castle, its patisserie and its charming pedestrian streets. The Loire River flows at the bottom of the chateau… for your first unforgettable snapshots!
Day 2: Photo workshop at Chenonceau
Your first workshop with a professional photographer will cover the best ways to set up your camera for shooting in different conditions and Chenonceau, with its castle and its gardens, will be your first “playground”.
Day 3: Photo workshop at Chambord and Cheverny
A full day surrounded by spectacular sceneries and just as many photographic opportunities, from Chambord to Cheverny. On the way back, don’t miss the odd looking castle of Fougères-sur-Bièvre and the lazily flowing Loire River.
Day 4: The Loire Valley from the sky
Before leaving the Loire Valley, take a look from a new perspective. Board a hot air balloon for a ride above the lush and green Indre valley, its castles, its the vineyards and its typical villages…
