To do

There is plenty to see and do in this corner of the Loire Valley.

The nearest bar and restaurant is Chez Bruno at 1.4 kilometres, although there are many other options in Richelieu at 7.5 kilometres or Chinon at 26.5 kilometres. On the Vienne at Chinon there is canoeing, and boat trips are also available during high season. There is a beach at La Rochelle at 196 kilometres if you are desperate for some sea air. Experience how the French do amusement parks at the Futuroscope Theme Park in Poitiers at 50 kilometres.

Other activities include Swing Golf de Braslou at 500 metres, horse riding at Pouzay at 17 kilometres, segwaying in Loches, Tours and Amboise, and there are public swimming baths in most towns (nearest Richelieu) open daily during the summer months. During the summer season there are many local markets, fĂȘtes and ‘brocantes’.

You could of course go wine tasting…..
