The Loire Valley 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 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.

"Fantastic place for family accomodation"

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.

"A good relaxing holiday"

As golfers who also like walking and wine, this was a lovely holiday for us.
Plenty of room in the old mill which still has lots of character, but with a
nice modern kitchen. Sitting in the garden next to the stream with a box of
merlot warming in the sun totally chilled us out. We liked the local lakes
with the nice gentle walks around them. We went to Villandry chateau which
was amazing.
The holiday was good value for money and I can definitely see us returning
