Loir et Cher lies at the heart of the Val de Loire, a land full of history, with several of the most important Loire chateaux, including Chambord, the most splendid of all. It is crossed by both the Loire itself and the smaller Loir, and encompasses a variety of landscapes, not just the river banks but also the misty forests of the Sologne and the Perche, famous for its horses. As well as historic sites to visit, there are river and forest paths for walking and cycling, and both rivers can be navigated by canoe. Gourmets will appreciate the many local delicacies such as asparagus and strawberries, game from the Sologne and the famous upside down apple tart created here, Tarte Tatin.
