and wine

Especially for the kids

Miniature Chateau


Gadawi Park

Loire Valley Aquarium

Underground Caves

Haute Touche






A holiday at Le Bouchet isn't all Loire Chateaux and nothing else. There's plenty more to see and do in the area.
Mind you, the kids might still enjoy the chateaux if they would like to play at being Gulliver in the Land Of Miniature Loire Valley Chateaux - 46 scale models of the chateaux in a 5 acre park!
For the more adventurous how about an adventure trail in the trees at Gadawi Park!

Futuroscope should of course be on anyone's holiday planner. A unique experience that everyone of all ages will be astounded by, it's a theme park like no other and is highly recommended.

The excellent Haute Touche wildlife reserve, near the chateau at Azay-le-Ferron, makes a really enjoyable day out and there are plenty of other wildlife parks and zoos to choose from.

For younger (and not so young) kids there are sandy beaches at the lake at St Cyr and Bellebouche in the Brenne National Park, both only 45 minutes away.

For the odd rainy day (yes we do get them - occasionally) nearby Chatellerault has a rather unique Motor Museum in an old ammunition factory, an indoor water park and ten-pin bowling. The Loire Valley Aquarium near Amboise and the underground caves at Biard near Poitiers or those at Savonnières near Villandry also provide an opportunity to keep out of the rain.
