About the neighbourhood
Based here at the Domaine de Beauvais, you will find yourself at the heart of the Unesco Heritage listed Loire Valley. In addition to the vast number of historical, cultural and religious monuments and sights that one can visit it is an area of culinary importance with wine production (and drinking!) at its heart. Numerous cultural and fairs are held throughout the area; Chinon our local town has regular antique fairs, a medieval market, music festivals and a classic car meet to mention just some of the events. The more physically active can follow several country walks, rent bikes, ride horses or perhaps just have a rest and relax in the garden then watch the night sky from the terrace.
Getting around
The heritage to be found in this part of france is vast. Numerous historical and cultural sights can be visited but the only realistic way to do so is with a car.
