  • The size of the passenger compartment: the vehicle must be spacious enough to provide optimal comfort for all participants

Why choose this way of traveling?

Visiting the castles of the Loire can be done in several different ways, depending on the desires of each traveler. You can choose to rent a hotel room or another type of accommodation on site to stay there for a few days. You can then visit one or two castles each day, before returning to your hotel at the end of the day.

This option is not the best, because it does not give you complete freedom in your travels . On the other hand, if you choose to visit the Loire castles by motorhome, you will be guaranteed to fully enjoy them. You can visit each place at your own pace, and make stopovers as often as you want.

So, in addition to visiting the castles, you can also discover other historical sites and monuments in the Loire region. This way of traveling also allows you to reduce your expenses considerably and control your budget. Not only will you be able to eliminate accommodation costs, but you will also be able to reduce the food budget by cooking some meals yourself in your campervan.
