Stretching down from the outskirts of Paris to the tips of the Massif
Central, Centre (24,300 sq miles) is one of the largest regions in France.
As an amalgamation of four previous provinces, its name proved a sticking
point and (although the more evocative Val de Loire has since been
championed) the government kept with 'Centre'. While the name has been
accused of being uninspired, the same definitely can't be said about its
exquisite environs. Broadly speaking, the most famous of these is the Loire
Valley - the scenic accompaniment to the longest river in the country.
Bisecting the region from east to west, the valley (also known as the Garden
of France) is home to a famous collection of Renaissance chateaux, widely
believed to be the finest in existence. Two of the most impressive include
Chateau d'Amboise and Chateau Chambord - the latter a 16th-century
masterpiece and the largest in the valley. Not content with its manors and
castles, Centre is also home to two of France's greatest cathedrals - those
at Bourges and Chartres (called the finest medieval example in the land). At
one point an effective holiday resort of kings, the region was also home to
many pivotal battles in the country's development. Arguably the most famous
of these occurred in the capital, Orleans, at which, in 1429 Joan of Arc's
forces stormed the city and secured a key victory in the Hundred Years' War.
Today, the area flourishes, with many of its towns boasting World Heritage
Sites and regularly reappearing on Best Place to Live in France lists. If you need to stay in the French region of Centre this is the place to book your hotel room.
