La Chemoliere is
situated about 1km from the small country village of Cléré du Bois,
which has a bar/restaurant (which also offers takeaway meals and pizza),
a small grocery shop that sells fresh bread, and a play area on the
village green and a riding school.

The larger medieval town of Loches is a 20 minute drive away and is delightful with its beautiful architecture, chateaux, castle and dungeon. It has many supermarkets, shops and pleasant places to eat. Markets are held on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
There are many other little towns in the area that have markets, so you will be able to visit one any day of the week to sample the delicious local products.
The cities of Tours and Poitiers are an hours drive.
For children there is Futurescope, fabulous Beauval Zoo Park, a safari park, horse riding in the village, leisure lakes in the Brenne national park to name but a few.
La Chemoliere is centrally placed for the natural beauty of the Brenne national park in the south and for the man made beauty of the chateaux and vineyards of the Loire in the north.
If you have any specific interests like bird watching, nature, wine tasting or the chateaux then we can send you guides and leaflets prior to your visit so you can plan what to see to get the most enjoyment out of your stay.
