Whether you are looking to rent a self catering holiday villa, house or cottage, we hope you find the ideal Centre holiday rental property in this beautiful region of France. Centre is a region of France located towards the northwest of the actual centre of France. The region is composed of six departments: Eure-et-Loire is its most northern department; Loiret is in the northeast corner of the region; Cher is positioned in the region’s southeast corner; Indre is in the south; Indre-et-Loire is in the southwest and Loir-et-Cher is in the northwest, between Loiret and Indre-et-Loire.  The region’s capital is Orléans, which is about 75 miles south of Paris - although its largest city is Tours. The main tourist feature of Centre is the majestic Loire Valley – a must see during your stay in the Centre region. The famous châteaux of the Loire Valley attract many tourists to the region and Centre is bisected by the east-west flowing Loire River.

It has been proposed to rename the region Val de Loire ("Valley of the Loire"), which would give more character and a truer reflection to the region. The name change has not yet been adopted, but the term is sometimes juxtaposed with the region's name, as in Centre - Val de Loire.

The region’s highest point is the 1653 foot Mount Saint-Marien which is located in the Cher department.   

The cultural heart of the Centre Region is the Châteaux de la Loire, which it shares with the adjacent region, to the west, the Pays de la Loire [Western Loire] and is a must-see while renting self catering accommodation in Centre, France. This vast and rich cultural area is known for its imposing cathedrals, such as at Chartres, and its many Renaissance châteaux that were built by ambitious kings and queens in remarkable locations along the Erdre, Eure, Layon, Loire, Saribe, Sèvre and Sologne river valleys. Some of the more impressive castles, that they built, are Amboise, Azay-le-Rideau, Blois, Chambord, Chenonceaux, Cheverny and Villandry.French holiday rental property in the Centre region, France
