This is equidistant (17k) from the famous cities of Chinon and Saumur which are both great places to visit. In Saumur you can take a guided tour of one of the sparkling wine producers, see troglodyte cave dwellings, visit a mushroom museum and perhaps see some of the magnificent horses from the Cadre Noir national riding academy which is based here. Chinon is a lovely medieval town known for its fine red wines and has a castle overlooking the river. Also just across the Loire a short drive away are 2 picturesque villages, Candes St Martin and Montsoreau, each classified as being amongst the most beautiful in France. The gite owners used to own a restaurant and can prepare a meal on arrival or on your last day if required, for a reasonable charge.
