Within a radius of 20 miles, you will find a great array of Châteaux amongst which are Chinon, Azay-le-Rideau, Ussé, Langeais and Saumur to name but a few.
The Futuroscope in Poitiers is only 1 hour's drive away. Bourgueil, along with Chinon, produces one of the finest red wines of the Loire.
Bourgueil's market, under the age-old 'halles' is also one of those treasured moments that are a feast for the epicurian's palate.

« We have all very much enjoyed our stay at Les Averries. The cottage is beautiful, charming and comfortable in all ways. The gardens, magnificent. The hosts, most gracious. We also enjoyed the pool. The lovely village, a short walk or bicycle ride away, has all that one might need. This is a perfect place for unhurried days and visits to the many nearby attractions, there is much to see and do for all ages. Young and old enjoyed the magnificent chateau. We do so hope to return. » Fenhee family, Chicago
