Enjoy a horseback holiday around Paris, the Loire Valley

Paris is always a good idea! A horseback holiday around Paris and through the Loire Valley is a delightful riding and cultural experience. Discover the extraordinary history of this beautiful region, riding, visiting and sometimes staying in beautiful Châteaux such as Chambord or Chenonceau, former playgrounds of the French nobility. Doing it all on horseback is a fantastic opportunity and an experience that will stay with you forever. Enjoy a ride back in time to the 16th Century, in a region ideally suited to riding tours where the flat countryside and former hunting grounds allow for long canters off the beaten track.
