Make a self catering villa in Loiret your home away from home

Loiret is a region in north central France situated on the Loire River, to the south east of Orleans. Loiret accommodation is plentiful and many visitors choose a gite or self-catering villa as a base from which to tour the area. Known as the ‘Valley of the Kings’, visitors are drawn to the area by the attractive castles and chateaux which line the Loire River. Loiret accommodation can even be found in one of these chateaux.

The quiet unspoilt countryside and charming French towns of Loiret are a delight to explore, and the French cuisine and boulangeries are just waiting to be explored. The area is popular for walking and cycling holidays as the summer weather is pleasant and the pace of life is unhurried.

Places to visit in Loiret, France

Orleans is the main town in the Loiret region, and the magnificent Cathedral is the main attraction. This busy city is linked with Joan of Arc, known as the Maid of Orleans, and many of her battles took place in the Loiret area.

Saint-Benoit-sur-Loire is well worth visiting for the ancient Abbey in the centre of the village. The Abbey is still used by Benedictine monks and is one of the best-kept Roman style churches in France. Look for the elaborate carving over the doorway showing scenes of the apocalypse and the Roman mosaic floor in the chancel. A guided tour is the best way to learn about this fabulous church.

Briare is another gem of Loiret with its leisure port, chateau and town hall. Walk along the canal past the locks to see the longest metal bridge in Europe, designed by the famous Gustave Eiffel. Flower lovers flock to the town as it is known for its summer floral decorations and flower beds.

Beaugency is a typical Loiret town, historically linked with Joan of Arc in the Battle of Beaugency when the town and the strategic river crossing were recaptured from the English. You can see the 11th century tower ‘Tour Cesar’ which played an important role in the battle. This quiet agricultural town has a castle keep to explore and a beautifully ornate 16th century Town Hall with many impressive wall hangings inside. The Maison des Templiers and the multi-arch bridge are all worth a photograph as you explore the narrow cobbled streets.

We liked the private garden and used it to full advantage when the sun shone. We hope to return. Ian and Jan

This village is surrounded by extensive wheat fields; harvest was in full swing and provided much interest during our stay. The gite is functional and very spacious in its layout. The natural cross-flow ventilation upstairs was most welcome in cooling the house after a long hot day. We particularly enjoyed the outdoor living areas. We found the internet to be slow and unreliable with frequent drop-outs. The owners were most apologetic but were unable to improve the service The friendly owners live in a house opposite the gite and were most welcoming and keen to make our stay an enjoyable one. Overlooking the poor internet service we would be more than happy to stay here again.

Beautifully renovated and to a high standard within a farm courtyard, which is so beautiful to look out on. A very warm welcome and our hosts were always ready to help. Easy access to the region with lots to see and do around, Orleans is good and Chartres is stunning! We stayed here with our 2 year old and he absolutely loved it - more tractors than he could dream of! We will definetly be returning to the house. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay and we can't wait to come back in the future!
