  • Chenonceau Castle - 28km away

The most visited castle in France after Versailles, the Château de Chenonceau is one of the most magnificent sites in the Loire Valley! Built in 1513, it was much cherished by Diane de Poitiers and Catherine de Medici. It was thus nicknamed the "Château des Dames".

On the outside, admire its arches gracefully spanning the Cher and its gardens planted on either side of the keep. Inside, discover an important collection of paintings as well as rare 16th century Flanders Tapestries and many others.
  • Royal Castle of Amboise - 38km away

A landmark in French history, the Château d'Amboise was the residence of the kings of France from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance. It was also the favourite destination of many artists such as Leonardo da Vinci.

This Gothic and Renaissance style castle, which is emblematic of the Loire region, has been classified as a historical monument since 1840. You can visit the royal flats and the many rooms: the noble guards' room, the drummers' room, the council room, etc. To complete the picture, admire one of the most beautiful panoramas of the Loire Valley from the castle gardens.
  • Château d'Azay-le-Rideau - 50km away

Built on an island and set in the middle of a sumptuous English-style landscaped park, the Château d'Azay-le-Rideau is well worth a visit. A true jewel of the French Renaissance, it was built during the reign of François I. Its architecture mixes Italian and French traditions. Made of chiselled stone, its facades are reflected in the waters of the Indre.

A historic monument since 1914, the Château d'Azay-le-Rideau expresses just as much refinement with its rich furniture, fine decorations and sumptuous portraits and tapestries.
  • Château and Gardens of Villandry - 58km away

Built during the Renaissance in 1536, the Château de Villandry is located between the Loire Valley and the Cher Valley. It is one of the last great castles built on the banks of the Loire. Visit its many rooms: halls, salons, flats, kitchen and terraces.

And continue your visit with the gardens of the Château de Villandry. They include no less than 1200 lime trees, 9 hectares of gardens and 52kms of boxwood. Take a stroll and admire the ornamental vegetable garden where vegetables blend beautifully with roses and flowers. You can also relax by the water gardens.
  • Château de Cheverny - 63km away

Built between 1624 and 1634, the Château de Cheverny is one of the most famous châteaux of the Loire Valley. It was the inspiration for Captain Haddock's Château de Moulinsart! It is a classical style castle and has been listed as a Historic Monument since 1840.

The same family has lived there for over six centuries. Each generation has maintained and embellished the estate with passion. During your visit, admire the interior of the castle, the botanical park and discover the unmissable Tintin exhibition.
