The Loire Valley region
The Loire valley is famous for its beautiful châteaux, the larger and well known of which are just a hour's drive away. More locally we have smaller, but just as interesting châteaux, at Le Lude, Ponce sur le Loir and Le Grand Luce. The lesser known Loir river is just as beautiful and winds its way through several towns locally - the nearest of which is La Chartre sur le Loir.
We are in two different wine growing regions the Coteaux du Loir and Jasnieres and there are several local vineyards offering wine tasting. The cities of Le Mans and Tours are full of architectural splendour, gardens and parks to visit as well as many different outdoor markets.
The race circuit at Le Mans is just 35 minutes away by car, making Le Moulin de St Blaise an ideal place to base yourself during the many events held at Le Mans each year.
The nearest village of L'Homme offers a bakery, grocery store and a butchers and is also home to the local wine Museum.
La Chartre sur le Loir is a typical bustling market town with a weekly market on Thursdays and Sundays, restaurants, cafes and small independent shops.
For the very active holiday makers there is the leisure lake at Marcon (just 15 minutes away by car) with a beach, bbq area, archery, horseriding, sailing, canoeing, fishing and much more.
15 minutes in the other directions takes you to another lake with jet skiing, paint balling and quad bikes.
For golfers there are 3 golf courses within an hour's drive (including one at the Le Mans Circuit). Fishermen are spoilt for choice with the lakes at La Chartre, and the rivers Loir and La Veuve.
There are numerous walks and cycle routes in the area with Le Foret de Berce just on our doorstep.
