CENTRE-VAL DE LOIRE (France)

Relatively lacking in large urbanised areas and possessing the smallest population of any region in France, Centre Val-de-Loire is the perfect antithesis to its noisy, grey neighbour – Paris. Its capital that inspired its American namesake, Orléans, is positioned to the North and boasts a population of which 25% are under 20 years old.

In the West, you’ll find some of the most recognisable Chateaux of France in the area of La Touraine. Tourism is big driver in the region and its employment sector is geared towards meeting the seasonal demand.
