The house is found 25 minutes from the Medieval Market Town of Loches ( Well worth the detour!)

A forty minute drive to one of the top 10 zoos in the world.  First in France ZooPark de Beauval

 La Brenne, is found less than 30 minutes away.It is said to be one of France's best kept secrets this is probably due to the size of the area and its ability to remain hidden from the casual tourist.

 Ten to 15 minutes from the house is La  Haute Touche Zoological Park. The zoo is located in Obterre, and is part of the Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle. 

For the boy racer in you  there is a 400m track 10 minutes away. Children from the age of 7 can channel their inner Lewis Hamilton.

 .....and of course the many Chateaux of the Loire.
