The neighbourhood

Valençay castle
The closest to Bel être.The domain of Valençay has a rather long history starting in 1803 when Charles-Maurice de Talleyrand-Périgord acquired it. The château was built over three centuries and combines several styles of architecture without disrupting the overall harmony of the structure. On the contrary, it is one of the most prestigious buildings in the Loire Valley. Start your visit here

Visiting Loire’s castles
Built along the « Cher» and the « Loire » rivers, you will have to choose between « Chenonceau castle » (ladies castle), the incredible Chambord castle, Cheverny castle (who inspired Hergé with Tintin) etc.. please go to: loire-châteaux.org

Beauval zoo
Since their arrival in 2012, they are the stars of the ZooParc de Beauval ! Huan Huan, the female giant panda, and Yuan Zi, the male, are at the center of all attentions.
N°1 zoo in France, Beauval look after more than 600 species, the biggest animal diversity ever seen. Reproduction is their main object and re-introducing every species in their natural land is a goal for this family affair, set up by great Madame Françoise Delord.

Vi tilbragte en uge sammen med et vennepar i huset “Touraine”. Stedet og boligen levet fuldt op til billederne her på siden - og mere til. Omgivelserne er fantastiske og smukke. Her er virkelig grundlaget for en ferie med ro, fordybelse og afslapning. Værtsparret Claude og Luc er utroligt hjælpsomme og venlige. Jeg kan kun give stedet mine varmeste anbefalinger.

Fantastic accommodation and hosts!

This is a very overdue review on our fabulous weeks stay in Touraine, in Aug this year (2018). The whole experience from booking through to arrival and throughout our stay was just superb! From the moment we arrived we were warmly welcomed by Claude and Luc, who were generous with their time as they showed us around all the wonderful facilities Bel Etre has to offer as well as familiarizing us with all the local attractions. We were spoiled for choice between, staying at base and enjoying the lovely "domain" or heading out to explore places of interest, and by the end of your holiday felt we achieved the perfect balance! In summary, Bel Etre really is as lovely as it advertises on the website and has provided us with fond memories of our first visit to the Loire.....would love to return and strongly recommend.

Nous avons passé un fabuleux séjour sur le domaine. Il faut d’emblée souligner l’accueil très chaleureux de Claude et de Luc, qui font tout pour que l’on se sente chez soi. Ensuite, les gîtes sont confortables et bien équipés, et les infrastructures vraiment agréables. Nous avons pu alterner de nombreuses visites avec des plages de détente et de sport. A noter la boucle de 6 km à partir du domaine, idéale pour courir...Nous espérons revenir l’année prochaine !
