Where to Go, What to Do

The house and garden are in the foreground, with the village and church behind surrounded by countryside and farms.
The house and garden are in the foreground, with the village and church behind surrounded by countryside and farms.

There is a vibrant little bar/restaurant in the village serving great food. The nearest supermarket is six kilometres from the house, but you might prefer to shop in the medieval town of Loches, fifteen minutes' drive. It hosts an excellent food market twice a week, with stalls selling meats, cheeses, preserves, produce, bread, and more. It also has a château and a fortress.

Equally close is Le Grand Pressigny, which has a lovely chateau and an excellent small museum, as well as a weekly food market.

In the house, you'll find a map marked with bicycle rides around the village and through the forest, which you can do on the good quality bikes that are available to guests.

Château de Chenonceau
Château de Chenonceau

Some of the famous châteaux of the Loire Valley, such as Villandry and Chenonceau, are within 40 minutes' drive. Also within easy reach are the vineyards of Chinon, which you can visit to taste the product, and the interesting town that gives the wine region its name.

The city of Tours (described by the Lonely Planet guide as a mini Paris) is also an easy drive. Closer to home, there are many charming little villages which are easy to visit on a bike for a coffee or lunch. An excellent fine dining restaurant called La Promenade can be found in the village of le Petit Pressigny, just fifteen minutes away.
