    A little further afield...

    Visiting the Loire Valley means visiting the castles that make it so famous. During your stay, the Domaine des Thomeaux*** offers you a break to yourself, close to the Château d'Amboise, Clos Lucé and the Domaine de Chaumont-sur-Loire. At this eco-friendly, Clef Verte-labeled establishment, you can try your hand at a Finnish bath overlooking the forest, or treat yourself to a treatment using natural, eco-certified products.

    At the other end of the département, the Best Western Plus de la Cité Royale****, housed in the former courthouse opposite the Cité Royale in Loches, boasts an indoor pool, hammam and spa in the palace's former underground cellars. In this atypical setting, treatments are provided using Maison Caulières products, made in Dolus-le-Sec in Touraine.
    If you'd like to enjoy the experience directly at the château, head for the Château de Beaulieu*** in Joué-lès-Tours.
    This charming hotel, awarded the Clef Verte label, is located at the top of the Cher hillside, in the heart of a 3-hectare park. In this chic yet relaxed atmosphere, treat yourself to a Pilates session or indulge in a signature "Magnolia Spa" getaway or a green tea facial.
    Finally, relax in the spa and enjoy a drink in a Belle Époque setting with panoramic views over the Indre valley at Château d'Artigny in Monts.
