The Loire Valley between Sully and Chalonnes. A Unesco world heritage site

The Loire Valley (spanning 280 kilometers (170 mi), is located in the middle stretch of the Loire River in central France, primarily within the administrative region named Centre-Val de Loire. The area of the Loire Valley comprises about 800 square kilometres (310 sq mi) It is referred to as the Cradle of the French and the Garden of France due to the abundance of vineyards, fruit orchards (such as cherries), and artichoke, and asparagus fields, which line the banks of the river.The valley includes historic towns such as Amboise, Angers, Blois, Chinon, Orléans, Saumur, and Tours.The climate is favorable most of the year, the river often acting as a line of demarcation in France's weather between the northern climate and the southern.The river has a significant effect on the mesoclimate of the region, adding a few degrees of temperature.

It is significant for the quality of its architectural heritage, with historic cities such as Amboise, Blois, Chinon, Nantes, Orléans, Saumur, with numerous castles such as Amboise, Villandry and Chenonceau. The landscape of the Loire Valley, and more particularly of its many cultural monuments, illustrates to an exceptional degree the ideals of the Renaissance and the Age of Enlightenment in Western European thought and design. It is an exceptional cultural landscape of great beauty.

If the place was neglected it would look awful because deteriorates, perhaps the history of the ancestors of those who lived there would be lost. Its water would lose its cleanliness, the parks and the valley would be destroyed, its reserves would be lost.

I would go on an Air France plane that does not make any stops are 9 hours on the trip departing from Houston Airport at 4:30 pm and arriving at 8:30 am, the flight costs around 3060 dollars, arriving To the central of France, then it takes a bus that lasts 127 minutes of way, approximately would arrive at The Loire Valley at 1:00 pm.

This place is very rich in reserves, has many lakes, also has many trees, this place is located in the center of France. It is a place that needs a lot of care, its trees always have to be taken care of. The Loire Valley is also famous for its wineries and for being a growing area for some of the best white wines in the world, such as the Sauvignon Blanc, Sancerre and Muscadet.
