Lake Rillé and the unspoilt Touraine

A unique destination, steeped in history and unspoilt nature. Here, the landscapes are undulating, the wildlife is exceptional, the vineyards are age-old, and you can discover a unique concentration of some of France’s most beautiful châteaux.

 

At the gateway to the Anjou region and the Loire-Anjou-Touraine Regional Park, savour a lifestyle that is typical of the Loire Valley. Whether you are sporty, a history buff or more contemplative, a dream holiday awaits you in the Touraine.

Bird sanctuary

1 km

Lake Rillé is an amazing bird sanctuary (with 250 recorded species). The French League for the Protection of Birds (LPO) organises bird spotting outings around the lake every year in July and August.

In the heart of wine country

24 to 45 km

The Val de Loire is one of the biggest wine regions in France, encompassing Bourgueil, Touraine, Chinon and much more… For your convenience and guidance, a scenic route through wine country will lead you along the Loire River, where you will encounter superb scenery and passionate wine growers.

Along the Loire

30 to 50 km

Spend a few hours on board a toue (a traditional boat), drifting along the Loire with a captivating captain. The icing on the cake: some of these boatmen even offer gourmet tours for brunch or cocktail hour, featuring a sample of regional products for you to enjoy.

Sailors’ museum

30 km

Enter the world of the sailors of yesteryear at the Musée des Mariniers in Chouzé-sur-Loire. Meet the men and women who worked on the banks of the river and learn all about their trades.

Le Cadre Noir

This world-renowned horse riding school is open to the general public all year long. There, you can watch vaulting shows and explore the tack room, the stables, the arena and more… This professional animal world is sure to fascinate visitors of all ages.

Tours, the gateway to the Loire

Chinon Royal Fortress

45 km

La Calèche des Châteaux is an original way to discover the Loire Valley’s châteaux with the kids. Distances of 20 to 35 km.

Château du Rivau and gardens

A trip to Rivau is a far cry from a traditional castle and garden tour.
