Christmas at the chateaux

Loire Chateaux

Christmas: a magical time for all…

We see it and feel it in the eyes of our children, in our hopes and our quest for tranquillity; the Christmas period is a sweet time.

Let yourself be carried away by the magic of the Loire Chateaux which are adorned with the most beautiful lights and the most beautiful colours for precious moments… almost timeless. The Christmas spirit is there…

Totally decorated, indoor and out with Christmas trees, each one more sumptuous than the last, Chambord will celebrate its 500th birthday adorned with its most beautiful Christmas decorations.

Christmas at Chateau d’Amboise: Christmas, childhood dreams
This year, the Christmas will be dedicated to the most tender and joyful memories of childhood. A soft and fluffy sovereign rises to the throne of the chateau: King Teddy Bear! True to tradition, the splendid Neapolitan crib will also amaze visitors.

Christmas at Chateau de Chenonceau: Christmas at Chenonceau… fantastic animals
During the Christmas holidays, exceptional plant displays and richly decorated Christmas trees festoon the large gallery, the royal apartments and the famous chateau kitchens. “The added bonus at Chenonceau: to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Renaissance, an extraordinary bestiary will be on show…”

Christmas at the Chateau de Chaumont-sur-Loire

Celebrate Christmas at the ZooParc de Beauval

It’s not just the chateaux that celebrate Christmas, discover the ZooParc de Beauval as you have never seen it before: sparkling with lights, colour and decorations, each more magical than the last.

There’s even a nod to the most mythical residents of the Zoo de Beauval, a giant structure, entirely illuminated by LEDS, representing the giant pandas.

So that the Christmas spirit is there throughout your stay, the Beauval hotels and restaurants will also be decorated in their festive finery.
