Peace and quiet in the Floral Park

Every bookworm’s favourite, the peace and quiet in Orleans-la-Source’s Floral Park will encourage you to relax and admire the omnipresent nature by the banks of the Sologne.

The source of the Loiret

The source of the Loiret, which gave its name to the department, is a peaceful spot just a few cable-lengths from the city but a world away from the hustle and bustle, surrounded by water and nature.

The arches of George V Bridge

Head back into the city centre and see the Loire, the royal river, cut through Orleans in all its wild splendour, a little bit of nature that can be watched, listened to, and appreciated in any weather…

The quayside at nightfall

If you walk along the quayside from old Orleans port at nightfall, the light and reflections of the barges give this enchanting setting an aura that can’t be found anywhere else.

Half-timbered houses

Orleans’ old town stretches out along this gentle hillside formed over the centuries, as if drawn to the Loire. The river itself captivates runners and crowds.

Orleans wakes up

Little by little the sleepy city awakens from its slumber. It’s great to stroll through the city for a different view of its buildings in that special light.

Orleans from the top of the Cathedral

The day has dawned, and the city and its majestic views stretch out before your very eyes from the top of this beautiful cathedral, one of Orléans landmarks.

*Place Sainte-Croix*

A haven of green in the heart of the city

Now we can hide away in Orleans’ lovingly restored old city centre, and find sanctuary in this perfectly situated piece of living, breathing nature. A haven of green in the heart of the city.

Maison de Maître

Here and there, outstanding monuments from the seemingly distant past rise above the picture-postcard scenery.

The city of Joan of Arc

As you pass through the Place du Martroi, Joan of Arc stands proud in the middle, beckoning us onwards and pointing the way to the cathedral.
