The Indre-et-Loire is situated to the South of the River Loire and from La Richardière many of the area's most interesting Chateaux are within an hour's drive.
We are surrounded by some extremely lovely villages. Our own, Le Petit Pressigny, has a boulangerie, cafe and a Michelin Star restaurant - "La Promenade".
There are several natural parcs and Zoos in the area. The Zoo Parc Beauval is by far biggest and the best with Giant Pandas in the Chinese section.
There are many roads which are relatively traffic free and make excellent cycle-routes where our guests can travel between villages and there is every possibility of seeing one or more of the wild birds which live in the area.
A great place to relax.
At the end of the day our grounds offer tranquillity, peace and beautiful countryside views and the heated swimming pool.
Then there are the sunsets and the stars. Guests can often be seen sitting out watching the sun setting in the West and later, as we have little or no light pollution, star gazing is a wonder for all to behold.
