If the hustle and bustle of sport is not for you, or you want a day exploring this beautiful area there are many sights to be seen, these range from wine routes to Châteaux and cathedrals to bird exhibitions and science museums. There’s lots for the whole family!

The tranquility of the area means there are many routes for those who enjoy a stroll or run can take.  There is also the 'voie verte' which is a network of disused train tracks, modified to create tracks. There is a ‘circuit prehistoric’ in the village of Grand-Pressigny which is just up the road, or simply follow one of the routes that we have found! 

The Brenne National Parc spreads over 1,672 km² and contains le mille étangs (1000 lakes) as well as many animals, Châteaux and parks.

Within the town of Chauvigny, not only is there the standard Marie and church, but there is also the Vélorail - a bike like cart on a disused train track - a museum and birk exhibit!

Just a little further is the city Poitiers, here there is a cathedral and Futuroscope! 

If touring through the area is your thing, there is a Loire Valley wine route, which will take you trough all the vineyards, or just kick back and relax in one of the local vineyards. 

The Loire River can be followed from Angers through Tours, along the old demarcation line to Blois where there are over 40 châteaux, along with remarkable gardens and museums.
