Walking, on a bicycle, on the water or from above

You want to take advantage of your holidays for a stay close to the nature or a different discovery of the landscapes of our region.

To help you we shall propose you:

  • Hikes in Loir-et-Cher or in Indre-et-Loire (GR 41, GR 3, GP of the countries of castles).

Whether it is for half a day or a whole day we shall advise you according to your desires because we have a wide documentation (maps of the hikes, IGN (National Geographic Institute map) and we practice the same.

  • A tour on the water:

Leave for 1 hour or more to the discovery of the flora and the fauna on a “toue”, a traditional boat on the Loire with the association “Millière Raboton”. Or follow Blois on a futreau, more information with the tourist office of Blois. You can also pass under the castle of Chenonceau aboard “Bélandre”.

  • A flight to see all this from above:

Several sites of flight of hot-air balloons. For example AÉROCOM proposes a flying over the Loire river or above the castle of Chenonceau. “Loisirs Loire Valley” propose flights in ULM (ultra-light machine) above castles: all the photos “seen from above” of this site were made by Rémi during a flight of one hour and a half.
You can make a flight in helicopter also that allows to see a largest number of castles in a short time (and by almost any weather!: airport of Dierre ” héliberté ” or ” Air Touraine”
