The Loire River Basin

If you are looking to find out everything that you can about the Loire River Basin, then this site might be useful to you.  There is not any direct information on the page, but there is a comprehensive list of other websites with information about Loire.  Each of these sites is put into a different category and has a description next to it of what it is about.  For example, each link has information next to it in parenthesis that helps to describe it.  One downside to the site is that most of the links it references are written in French.  You can tell this because next to the links there is the abbreviation (fr) in parenthesis.  This can be a problem if you only speak English and are looking for informative sites about Loire.  You may be able to decipher some of the sites by using a web translator system, but otherwise you may have trouble using much of the information that can be referenced on the site.

The links on the site are divided into three different categories, so you will at least know what you are looking at.  These sections are Content, Basics, and News.  So, even though the pages that the links take you to may be written in French, you will at least know what they are referencing.  There is a lot to learn about the Lore River Valley, and many of these links cover important information like “Dam Decommissioning” and “The Loire – UNESCO World Heritage.”  And, some of these linked in sites also have an English section if you can find it and change the page from French to English.

If nothing else many of these linked sites offer you the ability to see pictures of the Loire River.  Even if you do not understand the pages themselves, the photographs can be intriguing and can help you to better understand the Loire region.  So, while the site has a wealth of information in the various links that it offers, the amount that is going to be useful to you and whatever knowledge you may want to gain about Loire is debatable.
