Adventure Park Nançay is a fantastic adventure in the trees, suitable for all ages and levels, although you will need lots of energy for climbing up rope ladders and swinging from tree to tree. The courses are arranged into 4 zones of varying difficulty.
This parc is surrounded by the charming châteaux of the Loire Valley. The closest to the parc, just south of Orleans, is Château de la Ferté St-Aubin. The largest is Château de Chambord, a truly magnificent sight, supposedly designed in part by Leonardo Da Vinci.
Parc Floral de la Source in Orleans is a treat for the senses. The site has vast expanses of flower beds as well as a butterfly house, emus, flamingos and deer, and for children there is a playground, minigolf and a small train.
Orleans is crammed full of sightseeing spots, such as the city’s medieval university, Sainte Croix Cathedral, Musée des Beux-Arts and many more. And if you want to relax after a busy morning of sightseeing then take a picnic to Parc Pasteur or visit one of the town’s many excellent restaurants. If you visit on a Tuesday, Thursday or Saturday morning you must explore the local market.
