The Centre-Val de Loire region in France is known for its beautiful landscapes, rich history, and numerous natural attractions, but it doesn’t have any national parks in the traditional sense. However, it is home to several regional parks, nature reserves, and protected areas that offer opportunities for outdoor activities and the enjoyment of nature. Here are some of the notable natural areas in the Centre-Val de Loire region:

  1. Parc Naturel Régional du Perche: This regional natural park is located in the southern part of the Centre-Val de Loire region. It’s known for its picturesque rolling hills, forests, and charming villages. The park is a great destination for hiking, horseback riding, and exploring the countryside.
  2. Parc Naturel Régional Loire-Anjou-Touraine: While it primarily covers areas in the neighboring Pays de la Loire and Nouvelle-Aquitaine regions, it extends into the Centre-Val de Loire region. This park is centered around the Loire River and features diverse landscapes, including wetlands, vineyards, and historic châteaux.
  3. Foret d’Orléans: The Orléans Forest is one of the largest state-owned forests in France and is located in the Centre-Val de Loire region. It offers excellent opportunities for hiking, biking, and bird-watching. The forest is known for its diverse flora and fauna.
  4. Parc Botanique de La Source: This botanical garden is situated in the city of Orléans. It’s not a national park, but it’s a lovely place to explore a wide variety of plants and landscapes. The garden features themed areas, ponds, and a collection of plant species.
  5. Lac de la Forêt d’Orient: While not in the Centre-Val de Loire region, the Lac de la Forêt d’Orient is located relatively close to the region’s northeastern border. This lake and its surrounding forests are known for water-based activities, including swimming, boating, and bird-watching.

Although the Centre-Val de Loire region doesn’t have a designated national park, its regional parks and natural areas offer plenty of opportunities to appreciate the natural beauty of the Loire Valley and the surrounding regions. Whether you’re interested in exploring forests, rivers, or cultural landscapes, you’ll find a variety of outdoor experiences to enjoy in this part of France.
