Loire Valley Balloon Ride: Renaissance on the banks of the Loire!
The famous and unique “ladies’ castle”, so characteristic with its bridge that spans the Cher, is one of the centerpieces of the Loire châteaux. If visiting it on the ground is always a delight, discovering it by flying over it is fantastic.
In the early morning in the rising sun, or in the twilight at the end of the day, the majestic cylindrical turrets of flamboyant Gothic style are reflected in the water of the river, giving the building the appearance of a flagship. Chenonceau’s plan has no equivalent in France, but its typology is reminiscent of the palaces on the water in Venice.
In its green setting, the slate roofs make the castle shine with a thousand lights. By taking a distance from this architectural pearl, the gaze is drawn into the distance to see here and there, a mansion, a private mansion or a stately residence.
The abundance is hardly believable, witness to a secular history and an exceptional heritage.
The scheduling of flight hours is conducive to the observation of wildlife, which is also the wealth of the area. The trip can be punctuated by observing a flight of gray herons, a herd of deer grazing or hares scampering in the fields. The hot-air balloon flight allows you to appreciate the harmonious combination of the waters of the Loire and the forest vegetation which has inspired so many poets.
