If you don't want to miss out on all that Touraine has to offer, this is the best option. This beautiful region was a favorite haunt of the Kings of France for many centuries. And why? Because the Loire Valley is rich in forests for firewood, timber and game, with fertile land for growing wheat and vines and great rivers, the Loire and the Cher, with fish-filled waters ideal for navigation. This occupation has left us with a diverse heritage that is a joy to behold.
We are happy to organize hot-air balloon flights over this territory, the result of centuries of transformations, prestigious buildings and a landscape shaped by farmers and winegrowers. Art Montgolfières is delighted to share with all our passengers the joy of flying in a hot-air balloon, the joy and conviviality of a unique experience. Ballooning is a dream, and flying over nature is a daily wonder.
Take the plunge! The experience is accessible and peaceful. Discover our heritage from the sky, and from an unusual angle, take to the skies over the most beautiful châteaux of the Loire Valley;
We invite you to visit Saint-Georges-sur-Cher 41400, a pretty, traditional village in the heart of the chateaux region, which is easily accessible by car and motorhome, and a perfect base for exploring the area. Saint-Georges is dynamic and very welcoming. In addition to easy access and ample free parking on the main road, you'll find all the shops you could possibly need. It's the perfect place to meet up before being whisked off to the take-off site, which will be chosen by the pilots on site, in front of you, according to wind direction.
Which castle to take off from? The pilots make calculations to choose the best take-off point according to the day's weather conditions. This allows them to play with the winds to give you the best hot-air balloon flight ever. In fact, only the weather and the winds determine the route the balloon will take. Our take-off bases are located as close as possible to some of the most beautiful châteaux in the Loire Valley, such as the Château de Chenonceau, de Chaumont-Sur-Loire, the medieval city of Loches, the castle of Cheverny, of Amboise or of Montpoupon.
Flying in a hot-air balloon is above all an exceptional sensation, a magical moment to experience. A unique experience to share with friends, family and our team. You float among the clouds as if in a dream. The landscape unfolds before your eyes with its most beautiful panoramas, punctuated by one or more castles depending on the wind.
