Days Out



Chinon, with its markets and 400 m long fortress is just 25 km away, ideal for a family day out. And if you visit, you must go to the château. Azay-le-Rideau also has a beautiful château, one of the earliest Renaissance castles.



Doué-la-Fontaine is a lovely town with lots to offer. There is a zoo which is unique due to it being partially in caves, and there are other troglodyte features, including where the mushrooms are grown. It is the number one producer of roses in Europe so be sure to stroll through the beautiful rose gardens.
