The Loire Valley

Map of the Seine River
Map of the Loire River

The Loire is France's longest river rising in the Massif Central, in southern central France, flowing North and then West before reaching the Atlantic at Saint Nazaire. Historically the preserve of small boats and barges, a stretch of the Loire from the coast at Saint Nazaire through to the west of Angers is accessible to larger craft.

French operator CroisiEurope have pioneered a new design of river cruise ship specifically for this challenging river. Built in Saint Nazair, the Loire Princesse is proplled by twin paddle wheels makint it more manouvreable and with a lower draft. As a result it is the first passenger River cruise ship with cabins operating on the Loire.

One of the most picturesque regions of France, the Loire valley is a land of fairytale châteaux, vineyards and history.
