The Loire Valley really does have something for everyone. It may be world famous for its stunning chateaux and exceptional wines, but the Loire Valley also holds a secret of its own - a great place for a golfing holiday. Yes, it's true that the French are not considered to be golfing enthusiasts as a nation, but nevertheless, there are some stunning courses in this area.
