The Loire Valley region

The imposing River Creuse marks the border of the famous Touraine and Poitou regions. At one time, during the reign of Richard the Lionheart, it actually marked the border between England and France! Its is an area steeped in history and rich in heritage. The famous chateaux of the Loire Valley – now a World Heritage Site – are within easy reach.

Pretty villages, some with fascinating cave dwellings, proliferate in the region. With the network of rivers, rolling countryside and forest tracks, there are leisure activities and opportunities to enjoy nature for everyone's taste. And for lovers of food and wine, this is a dream. Traditional markets galore, produce of the highest quality, classic restaurants and, of course, the vineyards of the Loire.

This is rural France, ‘La France Profonde', at its very best!


The village of St Remy sur Creuse is 2 km away, or a picturesque 30 minutes walk through the woods. The settlement dates back a thousand years and is the site of a fascinating series of cave dwellings set into the rocks above the main village. Guided visits are available and there are a number of organised events throughout the year.

The village also boasts a newly refurbished Auberge, offering a range of traditional cuisine at very reasonable prices – or simply a refreshing drink as you watch the world go by.

The larger towns of Descartes (birthplace of philosopher Rene Descartes) and Dange St Romain (both 5 km) offer a full range of facilities including supermarkets, boulangeries, pharmacies, and banks. Bustling Descartes market, held on Sunday mornings, draws people from miles around and is a real social event.
