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.

The cottage has everything you will need. We just loved the tranquillity of the area and the accommodation. It's also nice that the owners live nearby for both knowledge of the area and also to assist with anything in the cottage. We would throughly recommend this cottage for a very pleasant break.
