Shopping and dining

If you’re up for some shopping, dine at a nice restaurant, or perhaps visit some of the many flea markets and antique fairs in the region there are plenty to choose from. You have easy access to beautiful villages and larger towns (the closest being between 10 minutes away by car) depending how far you want to explore on that day.

Local producers

While you’re in the Loire valley why not visit our local wineyards and cheese producers. There are plenty of wineyards to visit. If you prefer a wine tasting in our wine cellar, we are happy to organize a tasting from one of the regional producers especially for you.

To book a wine tasting at the chateau, please contact us minimum two weeks before sceduled date.

Car- and motorcycle enthusiasts

The surrounding roads that wind through pitoreque villages, cross over streams and rivers, and take you through rolling countryside/landscape would alone fill your entire day.
We have two well known car museums nearby. One is Automobile Museum in Valençay, and Matra automobile museum space in Romorantin.
If you are looking further to visit race tracks, there are probably some you’re already familiar with.

By starting your car at C.D.F. you’ve got Les Circuits du Val de Loire 45-50 minutes away, Magny-Cours 2 h, and Le Mans 2h, 15 min. Or the old classic Circuite de Charade 2 1/2 away.
