Many of our tours include visits to castles but the tours in this category have a real focus on castles with many more visits and comparisons between the fortress style, medieval stone and the more decorative Renaissance models.
France's Loire valley and the Dordogne are some of the regions best known for the high concentration of hundreds of castles, from the 'small' family style accommodation to the enormous Royal castles of Versailles and Chambord. Being in the same region makes it easy to visit many of them without spending hours travelling.
Castles built throughout the centuries are in almost every country in Europe, with some stunning examples in France and Germany which have been well maintained and may be visited.
Yes, you’ll see and do many wonderful things, but at a relaxed, easy pace that invites conversation and reflection.
There’s not a village you’ll explore, or table at which you’ll dine, that you won’t remember with a smile.
Whether travelling directly with Slow Tours or one of our carefully selected, kindred-spirit partners, you’ll have our complete and constant support.
