3 hrs
Everybody welcome
From 6 years-old and up

Fly in a hot air balloon over Chenonceau and its woods as far as the eye can see!

Escape from the city and leave for an unforgettable aerial journey! The hot air balloon flight over Chenonceau is not to be missed!

France Montgolfières takes you up to the discovery of Chenonceau, an exceptional site where you can discover the Castle and the Loire river. This idyllic and royal landscape has inspired many artists like Rabelais, Ronsard or Du Bellay who have described intensely its curves and colors.

The Chenonceau Castle passes over the Cher river with grace while the lush vegetation covers the sandy banks.
Wherever the wind blows, you will see the other manors and castles of the Loire and learn more about their historical reputation.

The experienced pilots from France Montgolfières will share their technical knowledge and will help you see the wildlife under your feet. They've been flying for years and they know the area perfectly and will be able to make you travel just by telling you anecdotes and historical details of the sites you'll fly over.
