The Novotel Troyes Aéroport is a comfortable, family-friendly hotel with a swimming pool, quietly located in the northwestern outskirts of Troyes in the Aube en Champagne region in France. The Novotel Troyes Airport hotel offers great deals and very cheap stays for advance reservations. The family-friendly rooms have a double bed and a sleeper couch to sleep up to four per room in comfort – two children under 16 stay for free. The Novotel Troyes Aéroport is a great deal for families, especially over weekends when business clientele stays away and prices drop.

Blue Skies over Château de Chenonceau

Visit Château de Chambord, Cheverny, and Chenonceau near Paris

Châteaux along the Loire are among the top sights to see in France. Chambord, Cheverny, and Chenonceau palace can be seen on a day trip from Paris but staying in the Loire Valley is rewarding too.

Blue Skies over Château de Chenonceau

The châteaux in the Loire Valley to the southwest of Paris are amongst the most popular sights to see when visiting France. This region is famous for its wine, fine food, and numerous châteaux associated with royalty and high nobles during the Middle Ages and Renaissance period. Loire Valley chateaux often combine elements from castles, palaces, and manor homes into stately country residences. Many date at least partly from the Renaissance when development in weapons meant thick walls were no longer impregnable to cannonballs. Castles had little strategic value and many were converted into comfortable and less drafty palaces. These mansions popular with the French nobility during especially the 16th century are now amongst the most popular tourist attractions in France.

  • The three best Loire Valley châteaux are arguably Chambord (the largest), Cheverny (the most elegant), and Chenonceau (the most romantic).
