Detailed description Also in other languages:
Centre is one of the 26 régions of France.

The région Centre is made up of the following former provinces of France:

  • Orléanais
  • Touraine
  • Berry
  • a part of Perche (the rest of Perche lies in the Lower Normandy région and in the Pays-de-la-Loire région)

The very bland name "Centre" is criticized by many in France. It was chosen by the French central government and based purely on geography, since the Centre région is made up of too many historical provinces to use an historical name. However, the région Centre is not really at the center of France, and the name is criticized as being dull and nondescript.

The main feature of the région Centre is the Loire Valley. It includes the rich, fertile valleys of the Loire River and its tributaries: Cher, Indre, Eure, etc. It is in the Centre région that are located the famous châteaux of the Loire Valley, which attract many tourists to the région.
