The Royal palace, Château de Chambord is just 6 miles away, one of the most extravagant in the region and well worth the visit, day or night. Slightly further out is the beautifully romantic Château de Chenonceau. Also visit the narrow streets of Tours for a spot of shopping and a bite to eat, and marvel at its Gothic cathedral. For walkers and cyclists, there are many forests and parks waiting to be explored. Finally for chocolate lovers there's the Max Vauche Chocolate Factory, just 15km away.
