Stay at an Indre cottage in central France for a peaceful holiday getting back to nature and discovering the history of this beautiful region. Find out about local flora and fauna with a visit to La Maison du Parc in La Brenne before exploring on foot, horseback or bike to see what you can spot. It's a paradise for bird-watchers with many rare species and plenty of hides to give you the best chance of a sighting. Cool off in summer with a dip in the Belle Bouche lake. Tours is the main city here; the medieval old town of half-timbered buildings offers a great choice of restaurants and cafes. Take time to discover the cathedral, bustling market places, and quirky features like a cedar tree planted by Napoleon and Fritz the stuffed circus elephant.
