The Loire valley

by Eugene McKenna May 22, 2020

With a length of more than 1.000 kilometres, the Loire is the greatest of the french rivers. Rising in the Ardeche department west of valence the river flows north until it turns to the west at Orleans before flowing 500 kilometers into the Bay of Biscay at Nantes.

The vineyards around Nantes are Brittany’s only vineyards and lie on both banks of the river Loire close to its mouth.
