Travelling a little further afield. But staying within 30 minutes to 1 hour’s drive we have: Puy du Fou, Monteuil Bellay, Saumur, Breze, Montsereau and Brissac Chateaux not forgetting the chateaux of Valendry, Asay du Riddeau and others. Plus the Beautiful villages with beautiful churches of Canault, Chenutte and Treves are just 20 minutes.
