Talk:Centre-Val de Loire
France is made up of 21 regions (Alsace, Aquitaine, Auvergne, Basse Normandie, Bourgogne, Bretagne, Centre, Champagne - Ardenne, Corse, Franche Comté, Haute Normandie, Ile de France, Languedoc Roussillon, Limousin, Lorraine, Midi Pyrénées, Nord - Pas de Calais, Pays de la Loire, Picardie, Poitou - Charente, Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur, Rhône Alpes). In France, a "region" has a distinct geopolitical meaning and a defined name. There is no region called "Centre-Val de Loire".
"Val de Loire" may apply to a tourist region, but that is a wishy-washy definition that you'd find on the cover of a tourist guide book. The average Frenchman would have difficulty fixing it down to a given spot on the map.
