During a long weekend or a well-deserved holiday, the whole family wants to enjoy the experience…and it’s only natural! But, of course, young and old do not always have the same interests. So, when the time comes to choose activities, we would like to offer this small piece of advice: opt for one of the chateau 

Learn and have fun as a family.

In Touraine and Anjou, tourist sites offer visits for families all the year round, which give you the opportunity to share the experience with your children. On the programme, entertaining visits, puzzles, games, drawings... in short, activities which will encourage interaction between parents and children in order to have fun while learning.

Each site also provides the organisation required for your comfort and safety, and, with a view to constantly improving its service, is interested to hear what you have to say. Audits are carried out every year to guarantee the standard of quality and offer interested sites the opportunity to benefit from the national trademark “Qualité Tourisme™”.

Castles, gardens, museums, town tours and even an excursion on the River Loire aboard the Saint-Martin will enchant you during your outings in Touraine. So why wait?
