Pocket Guide: Loire

Not to be confused with the Loire Valley further west, the Loire department is set just west of Lyon along the southern reaches of the Loire River and near its source. This largely rural region is a tranquil corner of central France, a patchwork of farmland, peaceful villages and, the further south you go, gently rolling hills that eventually lead to the mountains and ridges of the Massif Central.

Explore Loire’s main city, St-Etienne, a former industrial centre which has been revitalised by cutting-edge modern architecture and fascinating museums. It’s also home to some of Le Corbusier’s most audacious architectural creations.

Where to Stay in Loire

Have St-Etienne’s attractions on your doorstep when you stay in a Loire hotel in the department’s capital. Or you could choose a hotel near St-Etienne’s airport. Not far away is the forming mining town of Villars, where you can choose from a good selection of contemporary hotels a short distance from the airport.

Things to Do in Loire

Discover rejuvenated St-Etienne – the capital’s former industrial buildings have been given a vibrant new lease of life. Check out the sleek Cité du Design, a massive exhibition hall based in an old arms factory, and learn about the role played by mining in the city’s fortunes at the Mining Museum. If you’re a fan of modern art, visit more than 19,000 exhibits at the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art.

Take a trip to the extraordinary cultural complex created by Le Corbusier at Firminy-Vert. Built in the early 1960s, its daring design has made it on to the UNESCO list of historical sites. To go back further in the past, stroll through the Renaissance rooms of the Château de Bouthéon, which also has an animal park and a botanical garden.

Make the most of the River Loire by taking a boat cruise along the Gorges de la Loire. If you want to go under your own steam, head to the picturesque village of St-Victor-sur-Loire where you can rent kayaks, learn how to sail and even go windsurfing down a wide expanse of the river. If you’re a hiker or cyclist, explore the vast network of trails and hills of the Pilat Regional Natural Park.

Where to Eat in Loire

St-Etienne has restaurants to suit every budget, with many featuring the hearty cuisine of central France as well as rich Savoyard cheese dishes. If you want a good introduction to local food, drop into one of the lively cafes near St-Etienne’s food market which specialise in regional cooking. Linger over a delicious meal in one of the riverside restaurants overlooking the Gorges de la Loire.

Getting around Loire

St-Etienne has its own airport, but the airport at Lyon is a relatively short distance away and offers a greater range of flights all year round. Further west, there’s also an airport in Clermont-Ferrand, which is on the western side of the Livardois-Forez Regional Natural Park. The French SNCF railway network calls at St-Etienne and Villars, and getting around by car is straightforward thanks to the A72 and A89 motorways.
