Olympic travel tip to our Sister City this summer!

Paris is hosting the Olympic Games this summer. A savvy traveler could stay in Vendôme and commute to the games via train since it is only 40 minutes away.

About Vendôme

Vendôme is a commune in the Centre region of France. Vendôme is the capital of the arrondissement of Vendôme in the Loir-et-Cher department, of which it is a sub-prefecture. Chateau de Chambord, pictured above, is the largest castle in the Loire Valley. It is a MUST SEE on your visit. It has a tribunal of first instance. Vendôme is located 22 miles (35 km) northwest of the city of Blois and 40 minutes from Paris by TGV train. The town lies on the Loir River, which here divides into numerous arms intersecting the town.

An Invitation from the Chairperson
Tanika Gonzales

What exciting times I've had planning activities, hosting visitors, discussing business opportunities and traveling to our sister cities. All of these activities require a huge effort from several dedicated volunteers. And that's why we need YOU!

If you have an interest in the culture, history or people of France, please join Sister Cities of Hampton and volunteer to serve on the Vendôme Coordinating Committee. I am proof that it will be a very rewarding experience for you and your family.
