Things to do with kids in the Southern Touraine area of the Loire Valley

 

The south of Centre-Val de Loire is a good place to visit with children as you have a safe friendly environment with a diversity of outdoor activities. There are riverside and lake beaches, canoeing on the rivers and you are within easy striking distance of the neighbouring Vienne's 'Futuroscope'.

New for 2015...

 

Discover the history and heritage culture of Southern Touraine in a fun way that involves the kids….you can get a free app on ‘App Store’ and ‘Google Play’ entitled ‘Trolls South Touraine’ Via smartphones you have to find the South Touraine trolls who have escaped from their cage and fled in three towns of  Descartes, Le Grand Pressigny and Preuilly sur Claise.
