The Berry region
The Brenne National Park " land of a thousand lakes" is a great area for walking and bird watching. There are lakes ideal for swimming and one even has a "beach" . Interesting villages nearby include Angles sur l`Anglin, voted the prettiest village in France ,and the town of Le Blanc and the romanesque spa / golfing town of La Roche Posay .
There is a delightful chateau in Azay-le-Ferron a few minutes away with a really interesting tour - especially for children. It is situated in the parc naturel régional de la Brenne, spanning parts of the historic province of Berry and Touraine.
The Château d'Azay-le-Ferron, upon which the ancient commune depended, ranges from fifteenth century construction—the round tower—to eighteenth century. It is surrounded by a series of parterre gardens, some with clipped topiary, and a landscaped park.
The Loire Valley is about an hour's drive. It is referred to as the Cradle of the French" and the Garden of France due to the abundance of vineyards, fruit orchards and notable for its historic towns, chateaux, architecture and wines.
Pretty little hamlets, villages and towns are dotted around the area. The larger towns have many shops and hypermarkets.
Martizay le Blanc
The farm is on high ground with good views to the east. The immediate area is arable land with grapes grown for Touraine wines.
The local villages have a few shops and a weekly market. Cafes and restaurants abound as you would expect with " Jacky Dallais" being the local restaurant with a Michelin star.
