Activitites

For everyone, for all tastes

The Loire Valley is considered one of the most touristic regions in France.
The castles of Langeais, Villandry, Ussé and Azay-le-Rideau are just a few minutes away.
Amboise, Chenonceau, Chambord and Cheverny are located to the east; Montsoreau, Chinon, Angers, Saumur and the Abbey of Fontevrault are very close to the west.

Besides these, you can stroll through some of the most amazing gardens in France: Villandry, St. Cosme, Chatonnière, Chenonceau, Valmer, etc… you can discover botany in the city of Tours, visit the Loire Barge, fly in a balloon, or – more classically – visit museums, petrifying caves, vineyards, troglodyte villages, markets (they reach the number of 30 only in Tours!), animal reserves, zoos, etc.

And maybe you would like to go and spend the day at Futuroscope (about 1h 30mins by car)?
To help you to make your choice, many tourist brochures are available on the Hérissaudière and the hostess will be happy to assist you.
