Make a holiday rental apartment or property in Indre, France your home away from home

Located in the Loire Valley, Indre, the ‘hidden France’, is a beautiful rural department hidden from the mass tourist market between the Massif Central and the Loire Valley. Considered to be the most attractive part of the Val de Loire, Indre is also known for its cuisine, most notably its goat’s cheeses and pies. This area is still unknown and unspoilt by the tourist trade, allowing visitors to get a real taste of authentic French life.

Things to do on holiday in Indre, France

If you take a self catering Indre property you will be certain to relax and return home refreshed. The wonderfully natural open countryside is a delightful place to unwind, either walking along river banks, cycling down small winding roads or riding in green fields. Along your way you will be able to explore some of the 80 small churches and 100 castles which still dominate the landscape today. The most famous castles, which form the ‘golden triangle’, Bulges, Argy and Valencay should be very near the top of the list of attractions for anyone staying in Indre property, and during September, they also become host to the music festival.

Indre is a hotbed for wine too. A self catering Indre property is ideal for wine tasting holidays, as there are many vineyards in Indre that provide tours and sampling days to the public. Lessons in wine tasting can be taken around the department if your interest in wine so far has only been in the odd glass in the evening!

The Brenne National Park is a lovely place to walk and fish. Fishermen will love the ‘country of a thousand lakes’ as it is known, and there is a huge range of flora and fauna growing here too. Despite its location almost right in the centre of France, Indre does offer beaches! The lake shores are often covered in sand, and there are a range of water sports available including sailing and windsurfing.

Places to holiday in Indre, France

The departmental capital, Chateauroux, is the cultural centre of Indre. It is home to a large number of festivals and fairs throughout the year, especially during the summer.

Tranquil location step away from local attractions

4 of 5
We spent a week in this property - my wife , myself and two dogs. This is very pleasant , cosy and clean accommodation located in charming , rural France. There is a vast , well maintained garden in this property ,where you can seat and relax with a glass of wine. Don't have to mention it was paradise for dogs too- specially our little naughty Frenchy. It is within less than one hour drive from all important attractions of Loire Valley- Tours, Blois, Ambois, Bourges and its most famous Chateaux. Chateau Valencay is 15 minutes away. The roads are well maintained and we enjoyed driving through little French villages surrounded by vineyards. The wine cellars are almost everywhere , and you can taste very good reds and whites ( even better) accompanied by local cheese. Our hosts Agnes and Clive made our stay very pleasant and always ready to give us precious advice on local attractions , places worth visiting as well as dining options. Following their advice we visited Auberge Saint Fiacre in Veuil- it was awesome three hours culinary journey through incredible French cuisine. Our overall impression of this place- accommodation , tourist attractions,food, hosts' hospitality and the charm of rural France was so great that we would eagerly come back in future.

Beautiful and quiet.

The cottage was lovely, and beautifully looked after. Maureen was extremely helpful and was able to give us anything we needed. The cottage is very rural, so perfect for some star gazing!
