The Châteaux of the Loire Valley (French: Châteaux de la Loire) are part of the architectural heritage of the historic towns of Amboise, Angers, Blois, Chinon, Montsoreau, Nantes, Orléans, Saumur.

The Châteaux of the Loire Valley (French: Châteaux de la Loire) are part of the architectural heritage of the historic towns of Amboise, Angers, Blois, Chinon, Montsoreau, Nantes, Orléans, Saumur, and Tours along the Loire River in France. The châteaux of the Loire Valley number over three hundred, ranging from practical fortified castles from the 10th century to splendid residences built half a millennium later.

Jean-Marie Pérouse de Montclos (born 19 November 1936) is a French architectural historian. His family was an old bourgeoisie one originating in the Dauphiné. His earliest known ancestor is Jean Pérouse (died 1663), procurer, mayor of Vienne. Pierre Pérouse de Montclos (1746–1790), was mayor of and deputy for Roussillon, Didier Pérouse de Montclos (1786–1863) was a notary and Henri Pérouse de Montclos (1820–1892) was also mayor of Roussillon.

The architectural heritage of the French kings is nowhere as present as in the Loire valley. Magnificent castles, sophisticated gardens, and sweeping parks demonstrate both the monarchs’ power and appreciation of art, attracting and fascinating uncounted visitors to this day. Sixty of these works of art have been captured in brilliant color photographs for this book: the Hall of the States General at Blois, the Saumur and Angers fortresses, the picture-postcard castle of Azay-le-Rideau built in the middle of a river, and, impressive and shrouded in legend, the massive Chambord castle. The substantial texts describing individual castles are complemented by a map, a timetable, a genealogy of the kings of France, a glossary, and a bibliography. This is a fascinating book for all lovers of the Loire valley, all travelers, and anyone with an interest in history.
