Also built overlooking the Loire, Château de Villandry is a château for garden lovers and the last of the major Renaissance castles to be built in the Loire Valley. Dinner, briefing and night in Chateau de l'isle, a XVIIIth century mansion that charm you with its unique architecture and green surroundings. There is another River Loir, not as famous as its big sister, but just as alluring. The Loire changed its course, due to tectonic deformations, from the original outfall into the English Channel to its new outfall into the Atlantic Ocean thereby creating the presently seen narrow terrain of gorges, the Loire Valley with alluvium formations and the long stretch of beaches along the Atlantic Ocean. [1] The river can be divided into three main zones; the Upper Loire which is the area from the source to the confluence with the Allier, the middle Loire Valley which is the area from the Allier to the confluence with the Maine, about 280 km (170 mi), and the Lower Loire which is the area from Maine to the estuary. [1] In the upper basin the river flows through a narrow, incised valley, marked by gorges and forests on the edges and a distinct low population. [1] In the intermediate section, the alluvial plain broadens and the river meanders and forks into multi-channels.
