Sights and activities
Cravant-les-Coteaux is situated in the heart of the Loire Valley, which is also referred to, for obvious reasons, as “the Valley of the Castles” and “the Garden of France”. In the immediate vicinity of our Bed & Breakfast you will find countless big and smaller castles, the majority of which are open to visitors. Often they are surrounded by gorgeous landscaped gardens. Within easy distance you also find a host of cultural and historical sights, including the Monastery of Fontevraud and places such as Chinon, Tours and Saumur.

If you are a lover of fine wines, a visit to one of the many cellars in our village, or in Chinon, Bourgeuil, Saumur or Vouvray, is simply a must.
You are more than welcome to rest in our orchard. Depending on the season you can pick your own fruit (cherries, plums, mirabelles, peaches, pears…) and eat them! Or you can practise the noble art of archery. If you bring your hiking boots, you can explore the forest behind our house.
There is plenty to do and see for children as well. Apart from the castles (towers, dungeons...), there is a sweet-water aquarium in Amboise, a mini-castle park and various zoos and amusement parks. Chinon has a indoor/open air swimming pool.
The area is ideally suited for hiking and cycling. Numerous hiking and cycling tracks have been laid out. Detailed maps are available and we also help you to find the bicycles for rent *. There is also canoeing on the river Vienne.
If it is simply too hot, you will find a (supervised) river beach on the river Vienne, not far from our house, as well as the swimming pool in Chinon, which offers a stunning view of Chinon castle.
From springtime onwards, there is always some gastronomic market, antiques market, fair or festival in one of the nearby villages and towns.
Although less lively, the area retains its charms in winter and most attractions stay open, if only during the weekends.
We will be happy to advise you on what to see and do.
