Out and About
The best-known attractions of the area are the Chateaux and the villa is ideally placed to visit the most famous ones. Half an hour in the car will get you to Chenonceau, Amboise and Cheverney and an extra 10 mins or so to Chambord . Previous guests have said:
Chateau de Chenonceau - Brilliant, everything you expect: take a rowing boat to see the arches from the river.
Chateau de Chambord - Fantastic, very impressive.
Amboise - Must see – Da Vinci was tops with many of his inventions made up from his drawings.
Golf at Chateau de Cheverny - Wonderful
Other attractions -
Perhaps the most visited of the other attractions was the zoo park at Beauville (just south of Saint-Aignan, less than 30 mins drive). Guests describe this as a fantastic day out and open quite late. The animals are well cared for and the white tigers breathtaking. The birds of prey flying show and sea lions display are not to be missed.
Guests describe the villa as being in an excellent area for a holiday in France, with the whole area seeming like one big garden and a great location for touring.
