The Loire Valley / Indre region
Often called the "Garden of France". the Loire Valley is an enchanted land of vineyards, flowers and rolling green hills dotted with more than a thousand chateaux. It is perhaps the charm of its gentle pace life that has, for centuries, made it a sought-after location for poets and writers. It is a step back through the history of some of France's finest works of art.
Bourges- Located at the geographical heart of France, Bourges is a rich historical town of paved stone streets, medieval and Renaissance architecture, ancient ramparts and the remarkable Gothic Cathedral of St-Etienne which dominates the hilltop. Places of interest to visit in the surrounding area: the château o' Meillant, George Sand's House in Nohant, and Noirlac Abbey. And of course, Sancerre and its famous white wines.In the summer be sure to stay in Bourges for the Iluminated Nights. certain monuments and buildings in the town are brought to life with music and light.
The region called the "garden of France" lives up to its name, with an abundance of farm-fresh products: poultry, game and fish, vegetables and fresh fruit including berries, pears and apples, and of course the famous "Tarte Tatin". Hunting season puts regional game on the tables: deer, boar, duck, pheasant and quail. Early crops find their way to the best restaurants in Paris.
CheeseCheese in the Loire Valley
Chateaux are not the only thing that the Loire Valley takes very seriously. The gastronomy of this region is also very important for maintaining its own uniqueness. The Loire Valley boasts a number of mouth watering cheeses, 5 of which are certified local products. Here are some of the Loire Valley's cheeses that must be sampled:
Sainte Maure du Touraine, from the Tourraine region, is a soft cheese made of goat's milk and has a very distinct and flavorful taste. Unlike most goat cheeses which are soft and spreadable, Saint Maure is crumbly, hard and tangy due to the fact that it is aged. This cheese is characterized by its log shape and its moldy ash coating.
Pouligny St. Pierre is a cone shaped goat cheese that has a sour yet nutty flavor. This cheese is perfect for spreading
Crottin de Chavignol is perhaps the region's most popular goat cheese. This goat cheese is shaped like a small cylinder and comes from the small town of Chevignol. Whether you spread it on a roll or bake it as a topping for your salad, this goat cheese still has a lovely nutty and mild taste.
Wine and spirits
French Wine LoireA region bordered by many vineyards results in delightful and extremely varied wines: the fruity reds of Chinon, Bourgueil, Touraine, Valencay, the dry white Cheverny,the flinty Sancerre, the sparkling Vouvray...
Rich and varied charcuterie, including terrines, potted minced pork from Tours, local Poulet en barbouille and Carpe au vin rouge; white asparagus and tasty mushrooms. Dozen of varieties of the famous Chevre cheese. Sweets include gateau pithiviers (almond cream in a buttered puff pastry) and the renowned tarte tatin, a caramelized apple tart cooked upside down.
The La Chatre / La Berthenoux area
La Châtre is a medieval town that is simple lovely. The town centre itself is everything you would expect from a traditional French town, offering superb shops, restaurants and cafés.
The weekly market is held on Saturday mornings. You can enhance the experience with a visit to the Café du Commerce situated in the corner of the market square – particularly during warm weather when the tables are set out on the pavement - and watch the world go by over a cup of coffee or a kir (a speciality of the region is kir berrichone – that’s crème du cassis with red wine – and very tasty too!). In winter, indulge in a cup of Chocolat Chaud.
La Berthenoux is the local village with a medievel church at it's heart, with a very interesting history... there is a small bar tabac and a chateau
