For a weird and wonderful day out visit La Maison de la Magie. This house of magic is a very exciting venue with tricks and illusions around every corner. It is dedicated to the magician and inventor Jean Eugène Robert-Houdin.
Château de Chambord is the largest and grandest of all the châteaux in the Loire Valley, with 22 miles of stone walls and more than 12,000 acres of countryside, and is supposedly designed in part by Leonardo Da Vinci.
If you need to let off some steam then Adventure Park Nançay will be sure to wear everyone out! It is a woodland adventure park with courses to suit all ages. You will be walking across tightropes, swinging like Tarzan and leaping across rope bridges.
Parc Floral de la Source is a delightful place and a UNESCO World Heritage listed site. Its rows and rows of fragrant flower beds are glorious. But it is not just the flowers that are interesting sights; there are also a number of animals, including donkeys, sheep and birds, and a butterfly greenhouse where the winged creatures are free to fly or rest on your collar.
Blois is close by – an attractive royal old town with lots of restaurants and bars. It also has a wonderful château, enriched by a sound and light show.
