The Loire Valley / Loir-et-Cher region
The Val de Cher is famous for the chateaux - lovely castles built from the local white stone in our village Bourre. Visit Chenonceaux just along the river, also Chambord, Amboise, Azay le Rideau, Villandry and many more lovely historic buildings.
Our region is also famous for the wines, sauvignon, gamay and carbernet franc. The most famous local wine is Vouvray made from Chenin Blanc. We are only two hours by Autoroute from Sancerre.
This is an all the year round location. Summers are hot (around 25-30) and winters cold (can be below zero - but enjoy our log fire and the local cheese and wine).
The Montrichard / Bourre area
Montrichard is a busy little market town with all the facilities you require, a market on Fridays, good restaurants and good supermarkets.
Bourre is a small village with a bar, butcher, grocer and baker and a pharmacy. We are almost on the river and you will enjoy walks along the tow path as well as walks in the woods of Montrichard which are close by.
