Vineyards -Chinon (45 mins away) provides a full day out via the many vineyards to stop at and try, especially if combined with a visit to the town and castle. Montlouis-sur-Loire is the location for our favourite sparkling wine and Vouvray its perhaps more well known neighbour, again both make for a great day out especially combined with lunch and a chateau visit.
