“History of the Kings of France and gentle living in Touraine”
Delve into history at this magnificent château in the heart of the Loire Valley and the Vouvray vineyards. Its gorgeous stained glass windows, its magnificent staircase and stately gardens transport guests back in time to 1560, when Château de Noizay was the setting of an important episode in the French Wars of Religion. Here, a group of Protestant Huguenots, known as the Amboise conspirators, hatched their plot to abduct the young King Francois II. Each of the château’s rooms has its own unique décor featuring authentic period furniture. It is the perfect base from which to explore the sites and tastes of the legendary Loire Valley.
