Worth knowing

TIMETABLE: Meeting times are chosen according to sunrise or sunset, when the air is most stable. In the morning, the lights are whiter, giving you the chance to see animals. Evening colors are rosier, more romantic. Which do you prefer? It's up to you to decide what suits you best: day and flight slot. We'll send you all the details of your hot-air balloon flight, including the address where you'll meet up and all the information you'll need to make your flight.

GIVING A GIFT: Are you buying tickets as a gift? No need to book a flight date! Give the tickets as a gift and the lucky recipients will contact us later. That way, you leave them as many options as possible.

FLIGHT SEASON: The best flight seasons are spring, summer and autumn. In winter, hot-air balloons take a break to refresh themselves. Hot-air balloon flights take place every day from April to October, provided the weather conditions are good.

TICKET VALIDITY: These tickets are non-refundable, so it's up to you to find another date in the event of bad weather. You will have 2 flight seasons to choose another date.

RATES 7/7d: The rate is calculated for one person, but decreases if you are 2, 3 or 4 people. The basket can accommodate an average of ten people, depending on demand. Flight tickets can be used on weekdays, weekends or public holidays. The choice is yours!

THE DECOLLAGE SITE: We'll meet you at a large, free, convenient parking lot, accessible to all. We'll meet you there with our 4x4s and baskets. The pilot will carry out a final wind test, and will choose the launch point for the balloon only then, depending on the wind conditions, so that you can experience the most beautiful flight possible. You can then board our vehicles, and the crew will take you to the field from which you will take off.

Hot-air balloon ticket or non-refundable gift voucher valid for 2 years to cover 2 seasons of flying in Touraine.

The stages of a ballooning experience

A balloon flight over one of the finest châteaux in the Loire Valley

Be there: early in the morning or late at night! The pilot and crew will be waiting for you at the meeting point. A final wind test and you're invited to climb into the 4x4s. The adventure begins! Ready to touch the clouds?
Leave everything else in the vehicles. All you'll need is your camera, and you'll be able to take some great pictures as a souvenir.
We've arrived at the take-off site. Here you can watch the balloon being inflated and prepared. The pilot explains the instructions. Little by little, the envelope is inflated with cold air. Then, thanks to the burners, the air becomes hot and the balloon gently rises.
The balloonist invites you to climb aboard. A few strokes of the burners warm up the balloon envelope, and you're off, gently, for about an hour's flight.
It's like being on a cloud, with a 360° view. Let yourself be amazed by the spectacle of nature. Your first flight in a hot-air balloon gives you the opportunity for a real moment of contemplation. The winds carry us and steer the balloon. The pilot controls only the ascent and descent of the balloon. No sensation of vertigo, just enjoy the moment.
The flight comes to an end. The pilot is now looking for a place to land. He gives you the landing instructions a few meters from the ground. Are you in position? Hop, you've landed!
Depending on the strength of the wind, the balloon may stay upright or lie down. In any case, wait for the pilot to invite you to do so before descending.
The crew have followed you in their 4x4 and are now meeting up with you. We all pack up the balloon before sharing your emotions over the traditional toast of the balloonists!
After the bubbles and the beautiful images in your head, it's off again for a 4x4 ride and a return to the initial meeting point.
Don't hesitate to share your best photos and memories with us!

Chenonceaux by hot-air balloon

Departure from the Chenonceau region

The châteaux of the Val-de-Loire region are the result of the court's regular visits to Touraine during the Middle Ages and Renaissance. The Centre Val-de-Loire region offers many attractions for the Court of Kings: game, timber, firewood, tufa quarries, fields and vineyards as far as the eye can see and an ideal temperate climate. Not to mention the fact that the Loire and Cher waterways are major trade routes.

Château de Chenonceau is one of the most famous châteaux in the Val-de-Loire. Located in Touraine, it is built largely on the river. Its famous two-storey gallery forms a bridge over the Cher. It has been nicknamed the Château des Dames in reference to the many female personalities, queens and royal mistresses, who have transformed it since the 13th century. Now privately owned, the Château de Chenonceau was listed as a historic monument in 1840, and is a delight for visitors from the air and on land.

Take-off will take place as close as possible to the château, and always according to the wind direction, so that you can discover the region's most beautiful viewpoints. A hot-air balloon flight is a unique experience to enjoy together. Discover the garden of France, one of its most beautiful châteaux, and the varied landscapes that have been shaped by man for centuries. Depending on the day's winds, your route will take shape in the air, creating a unique itinerary for every hot-air balloon ride!
