L’Hôtel Valézieux a eu le privilège de recevoir la chanteuse américaine de jazz Dianne Reeves avec son équipe de musiciens.

Une star adorable, discrète à la hauteur de son art et des musiciens tellement sympathiques que nous avons eu l’honneur de les voir “faire un boeuf” sur le piano de l’Hôtel . Un moment privilégié avec eux.

“Christmas in the Land of Castles”

Noël au pays des Châteaux

But what does “Christmas in the Land of Castles” mean?

For this period of the advent and the Christmas holidays, 5 of the main castles of the Loire decided to remake a beauty in full harmony with the magic of Christmas. Changing from Christmas activities to well-known faces, this initiative has the great merit of bringing together culture, conviviality and Christmas spirit under the same roof.

Or rather under 5 roofs … Indeed, the castles of Amboise, Azay-le-Rideau, Chenonceau, Chinon and Langeais have decided to embark on the adventure to the delight of Christmas lovers. These fairy trails are included in the usual rate of the visit (large public or groups), so it would be a shame not to enjoy!

You will surely notice the location of the hotel Valézieux located exactly in the middle of these different castles. In addition to advising you, Hotel Valézieux is an excellent place to pack your bags!

Royal Castle of Amboise

Under the crackling of the flames and the intoxicating odors of the pine crowns, the Royal Castle of Amboise opens its doors for you to spend a magical moment before the holidays. You will discover the evolution of the Christmas holidays through the centuries.

Castle of Azay-le-Rideau

During the visit of this jewel of the Renaissance, from rooms to cinemas, we feel as if we were falling in the middle of the universe of Charlie and the Chocolaterie! Indeed, filled with chocolates and sweets of all kinds, the castle will amaze both the small and the greedy gourmands.

For fans of chocolate, be certain that the great crus of Laurent Meudic, sold nearby, will satisfy them. From the best choco-féviers, a selection full of magic and talent is made available.

Castle Chenonceau

Just a few steps away, you will be amazed by the beauty of the place and the expertise of the team.

SI as many, you lack ideas to fill the socks of your loved ones or to fill yours, do not forget that the Loire Valley is famous for its vineyards … Its wines, from a network of small producers extremely rich , Will make a gift of taste and accessible.

Royal Fortress of Chinon

Many think that the Christmas tree did not evolve with its time … The latter, during their visit of the fortress of Chinon, will have a nice surprise! Indeed, this royal fortress welcomes, for the period of the advent and the festivals, a multitude of Christmas trees whose decorations go from the most traditional to the most contemporary, passing by the most original and the most unexpected.

Very popular during the holiday season, the Black Truffle sharpens the taste buds of more than one French … Perhaps you lack an ingredient for one of your Christmas meals … If ever it is, An interesting bet is put in place by a local cooperative. They had the idea, rather nice and original, to sponsor (by whom may be interested) a truffle oak plowed against half of its annual production. They take care of the maintenance and you just have to pick up your truffles from the first year.

Castle of Langeais

Seeing the Château de Langeais from a distance, some might think that they have abused the wreath. On the other hand, getting closer, one gets the chance to notice a multitude of lights in perfect harmony with the landscape and the plant structures Existing. By allowing us to take part in this magical creation that would have nothing to envy the main films of Walt Disney, this castle adds a touch of delicacy to this quintuor of which you will give us news.
