The Loire Valley / Indre-et-Loire region
Rille is just North of “la route vignoble” of the Loire valley, and is therefore an excellent base either for a wine tasting holiday, or for just an occasional day out sampling the local wines of the Region.
The Loire region is famed for its chateaux, and there are many within easy reach of Rille. Close by are the chateaux at Gizeaux, Le Lude and Langeais.
In between Tours and Saumur, amongst others, there are the chateaux of Villandry (famous for its gardens), Azay le Rideau, Chinon, the fairy tale chateau at Rigny-Usse (which is said to be the home of sleeping beauty), the chateau and lovely village of Montsereau and the chateau at Saumur.
The Rille area
The local lake (Lac de Rille) is great for bathing in the peak season, the water is very clean and there are also lifeguards. The lake is great for picnics, windsurfing and walks. You can hire pedalos and there is a small steam railway run by enthusiasts at weekends and holidays.The far section of the lake is enormous and is a wildlife reserve, there are hides for birdwatching.

Le Vieux Moulin was a wonderful find for our week in the Loire Valley. The kids loved all the indoor activities as well as the wildlife around the creek running alongside the property. A car is a must, but otherwise it is well situated for visiting the castles of the Loire. Overall a great and relaxing spot for a holiday.
