You can be ferried upstream and canoe back down - on the |Loire and also the Vienne
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
There are 2 good courses near La Touche and you do not have to become a member to play
Saumur is the national centre of 'equitation'. Gizeux Chateau - just a few minutes' drive has horses you can ride
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
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
I cannot recommend La Touche highly enough. Situated in the heart of the Loire Valley surrounded by huge rolling fields full of gorgeous sunflowers and fruit trees.The occasional thunderstorms are spectacular. I have over the years stayed in all 3 of the main gites and all are of a high standard. My recent stay in Gite 3 was a particular treat. Perfect for the single traveller or a couple it has views on all sides - you can sit outside on a warm summer's evening and watch fantastic sunsets with a glass of chilled local rose. Great opportunities for walking and cycling and a good well maintained swimming pool with plenty of space and lounging facilities. La Touche has a number of properties but privacy and noise are not a problem and it's very safe for children. The hosts, Penny and Peter , are attentive but unobtrusive and a fount of knowledge on the best way to explore the area including local restaurants and vineyards. Fresh bread and croissants delivered every morning and wonderful local produce available from local markets. Great. This really is a place to chill.
Thanks so much for your very positive review. We are so glad you enjoyed Gite 3. We hope very much to see you again next year.
Fabulous property with pool.
The hosts are lovely, very attentive and helpful. We loved the daily croissant/bread service. This was a real treat.
A comfortable gite, quiet location, great pastoral views. Just lovely.
Thanks Patricia and Doug - we loved having you stay with us. Peter and Penny
