The Owner Recommends

A Market Almost Every Day

La Touche is surrounded by markets, small and large. Tuesday in Bourgueil is idyllic with the freshest of everything including a wonderful cheese stall


You can be ferried upstream and canoe back down - on the |Loire and also the Vienne

Cycling along the Loire

There are long beautiful stretches of France's longest river that have been specially adapted for cycling - and there are (some) bikes at La Touche. You will probably need a bike rack for the car though

Golf Courses

There are 2 good courses near La Touche and you do not have to become a member to play

Horse Shows and Riding

Saumur is the national centre of 'equitation'. Gizeux Chateau - just a few minutes' drive has horses you can ride

Many restaurants and a Good Range of Price

We will give you full details of all the best ones when you book


From mushrooms and tanks to the Loire in miniature and Sleeping Beauty's castle - and lots more

The Best Chateaux of the Loire

From family run small ones such as Gizeux to perhaps the most famous of them all - Chenonceau, there are dozens of wonderful castles to visit


La Touche is right in the middle of wonderful countryside including open fields and shady woods - bring your walking shoes


Reds and Whites (dry and sweet) and Rose virtually on the door step. We have good contacts and can recommend you the best

Fantastic trip. The Gite was really well appointed, surrounded by fields and a lovely forest to walk around. Pool also great and large enough for lengths as well as playing with kids. Penny and Peter were great hosts, full of suggestions around the area and v helpful. The area also gorgeous with lots of great wineries and chateaux. Totally recommend, we will be back!

Always a pleasure to stay at La Touche
A warm welcome that is far more important than any scores

We had a fantastic stay at La Touche. The gite was perfect for a family of five; clean, well equipped, with great outdoor spaces to eat or enjoy a glass of wine whilst watching the sunset. The outdoor areas are beautifully presented; our daughters spent a lot of time in the pool and my husband and I enjoyed running in the woods behind the house. We all made the most of the games room, playing a combination of piano, darts and table tennis most evenings.

Peter and Penny were very helpful in suggesting possible days out, and La Touche is ideally located to access the many Château of the Loire.

In summary would highly recommend to others.
