We are located in the centre of the Loire Valley chateau / castle regio weith Chenonceau just 4 minutes drive from the house. We have the Touraine vineyard on our doorstep with wine tasting at our neighbours house and great walks / cycle rides in our vines. Locally you will shop in the village or in Montrichard or Blere as well as Tours our local large town 30 km from here. There are excellent markets somewhere on a daily basis. We are only 5 minutes drive from Chenonceaux and 15 minutes from Amboise. Touraine Primeur (like Beaujolais Nouveau) is the third weekend of November. Garlic and Basil festival in Tours late July. Montlouis Jazz Festival in September.
Ideally you need to hire a car as you will want to visit the castles which are in all directions and from 2 miles to 50 miles away. It is possible to manage using our bikes - we have many bikes for you to use.
