Talk:Centre-Val de Loire

From Wikivoyage
Jump to navigation Jump to search

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.

Does a subdivision into departments make sense?[edit]

Currently this article has enough cities that subdivision might make sense, but the department articles listed have mostly not been created. Does subdividing into departments even make sense? Hobbitschuster (talk) 18:45, 6 December 2016 (UTC)

I was thinking that 12 cities is really on the borderline - only three more than our upper limit, so it would mean only a handful per article, were they to be created. On the other hand, the list of châteaux here is quite long, at 17. Considering this article doesn't have that much content to begin with, I fear creating sub-regions is just going to spread what little info we have even thinner. --ThunderingTyphoons!

True. So let's gut the department list for now and redirect the Indre article to its parent region. Hobbitschuster (talk) 19:14, 6 December 2016 (UTC)
Agreed. I would be capable of translating the corresponding articles of our sister project, which are quite good, but the question of time is always an issue. --ThunderingTyphoons! (talk) 19:19, 6 December 2016 (UTC)
